Trouble will knock, but who will answer?

Can you hear Jesus speaking these words to you? What does it mean to “not let” my heart be troubled?

I think I will ponder this active call to obedience today. What does it look like in my life to not let my heart be troubled?

Trouble will come. Trouble tries to break in daily. Trouble knocks loudly on some days.

What does it look like in my life to trade the reality of trouble for belief in Jesus? How can I practice His real presence in the face of trouble?

Right now I’m imagining TROUBLE pounding on my front door. I don’t want to answer the door, but they won’t go away. Perhaps I can ask Jesus to answer the door while I stand just behind Him.

What does believing Jesus and His presence look like, feel like in your life today? And how does that belief translate into action that doesn’t allow your heart to be troubled?

Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.
John 14:23 NLT

It appears to me that you and I have a choice. I’m choosing to ponder this scripture today looking for active faith.

I’d love to hear what you are pondering with regard to the reality of trouble and how you see Jesus helping you to not let your heart be troubled today.
