Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

(John 14)

YAHSHUA encouraged us to live a life of trust in God. The heart, the physical home of our emotion and feelings, can be hurt and damaged as a result of worries and anxieties. The emotion, the will and the intellect comprise the soul which, when not in complete trust and faith in God, is controlled by the spirit of fear. The apostle John wrote: There is no fear in love, but full-grown love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection], for fear brings with it the thought of punishment (I John 4:18). When the spirit of fear controls the mind, it controls it with torment, causing stresses the body cannot cope without getting sick. The emotion, for example, responds with panic attacks, worries, and anxieties.

The consequences of allowing the mind to be controlled by the spirit of fear are various and unsettled. YAHSHUA said, “Let not your heart be troubled”. This implies that we have the control of our emotion by controlling the thoughts of the mind before they reach to the heart. The Word of God says that we believe with the heart. If it does not believe the promises of God, then the result will be a troubled heart. The Scripture says, no man who believes in Him will be put to shame or be disappointed (Romans 10:10-11). Here we have the remedy for success in having a peaceful heart- believe in God, believe also in YAHSHUA (John 14:1)

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
