We must not allow life’s trouble and sorrow to harden our souls or to make us forget our Father’s mercies. Seek the heart of our Lord Jesus on that last night. He had Satan to fight the next day, to yield himself into the power of death and hell, and to drink the cup of his Father’s wrath against sin – but he knelt down and washed the disciples’ feet, taught them of the Father’s love, and prepared them for the great gift of the Holy Spirit. Overwhelmed with the terror facing him, he kept his eye on the prize set before him.

When I Am Afraid


            Christians are sometimes afraid. David confessed, “What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee” (Ps. 56:3). He said this when he became trapped by the Philistines in Gath. It looked bleak. At a human level, he was fearful of the outcome. He remembered God’s promise (v. 4). He poured out his heart to the Lord and recovered courage.
