Fears of the Future

I’ve been feeling slightly nervous/anxious lately about the future. With all the political tension, frequent violence, war preparations, etc… it’s been hard to watch and read the news without feeling that something is about to happen.

Recently, as I began feeling overwhelmed by these fears of the future, I knew I needed to go to God in His word to settle my mind. Sure enough, the verse of the day was enough to calm my fears and give me a chapter to continuously go back to when I’m feeling fear about the future. 

God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
    the holy place where the Most High dwells.
God is within her, she will not fall;
    God will help her at break of day.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
    he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Come and see what the Lord has done,
    the desolations he has brought on the earth.
He makes wars cease
    to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
    he burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”

11 The Lord Almighty is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.

Psalm 46 NIV

Today, if you’re nervous about the future, I want to encourage you to meditate on these scriptures. Remember, God has never failed, and He never will.
