Don’t Worry Be Happy

“The Lord is my Shepherd… I shall not want.”

  • As a shepherd cares for his flock… so will the Lord take care of His children.
  • Followers of Jesus NEVER need to worry about physical, mental, spiritual, or financial needs.  God has promised to care for us… we just need to have faith and trust that He knows best.
  • If we are deficient is some area of life (in the eyes of the world), it is according to God’s will.  If God’s work and glory can be advanced through our pain and suffering, so be it… We are in a battle between good and evil and our main goal needs to be seeking lost souls for the eternal kingdom.  We can praise God when we are poor, sick, and persecuted.  As we do so, people around us will marvel at our mental and spiritual strength and hopefully want what we have (Jesus).
  • NOTE: Pain and suffering for a true Christian is different from the pain and suffering of a rebellious (fake) Christian.  If we are not faithful to God in all things, we will suffer consequences that cannot be connected to the advancement of God’s eternal kingdom.  

And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will warn you of whom you shall fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yea, I say to you, fear Him. Are not five sparrows sold for two assaria? And not one of them is forgotten before God. But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore do not fear, you are of more value than many sparrows. Also I say to you, Whoever shall confess Me before men, the Son of Man also shall confess him before the angels of God. But he who denies Me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.  Luke 12:4-9
