God had not Given Us By Stephen Hurd is the song for the week.
The news of death, murder, retaliation, disappointment and hurt makes for an emotional roller coaster for us all. It can raise questions such as:
- How can this be?
- Who is behind this?
- What about me?
- Am I next?
- How will the vigilantes view me?
These questions haunt us, filling our minds with doubt and distrust, and eventually breeding anger or resentment. They distract us from the focus on our Heavenly Father.
Fear can consume our thoughts and our actions, but the word of God in 2 Timothy 1:7 tells us that, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” So there is nothing for us as Children of God to worry about because He said so…and I refuse to believe otherwise.
