Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

Job’s heart was found trusting God when he lost everything important to him. He said, “The Lord gave, the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord” (Job 1:21). We see here that his heart was not with the treasures of the world, but his heart was secured in the love of God. Abraham’s heart was not troubled when he was asked to offer his son, his only son because he believed in the promise God had given him that from him He was going to make a great nation. He knew and believed in the God that would deliverer the promise given him; his heart was not troubled, for he believed in the resurrection of his son, even if he had killed him. A heart at peace is a heart in harmony with God’s heart.  Let not your heart be troubled, for in believing and in trusting God is your confidence in Him and peace.

YAHSHUA didn’t suggest prescription drugs to tranquilize the heart. He prescribed trust, faith and belief in the true and only God.  Your prescription drugs are like a band aid, a temporary aid covering only the surface, the symptoms of your troubled heart. They cannot penetrate the soul with healing; only trust faith and belief can do that, for the spiritual problem of lack of trust and faith and belief, cannot be treated with drugs. It is a fact you should look into. Isaiah said, “If you will not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all” (Isaiah 7:9b).

Let not your heart be troubled because God has something greater and better for you, since you are not of this world; you have no permanent place here, you should be looking for the one which is to come (Hebrew 13:14), believing that your sufferings is not to be compared with the glory to be revealed to you. Believe in God, believe in Yahshua. Yahshua said, I am the same with the Father. The writer to the letter to the Hebrews said that YAHSHUA is the radiance of God’s glory; He is the perfect imprint of Him; He maintains the universe by His powerful word. Philip, one of His disciples, didn’t understand YAHSHUA to be one with the Father and asked Him to show them the Father. After YAHSHUA had introduced Himself as the same with the Father He said, “If you had known Me, you would also have known my Father. From now on, you know Him and have seen Him”. It will be a problem for you to believe and trust and have faith in someone you do not know. If it is the case with you, I invite you to a close relationship with YAHSHUA not only as your Savior, but also as your master and friend.

Let not your heart be troubled, for I am coming [back] to you; my peace I leave with you (John 14). Peace, the antidote of worries and anxieties, is the only thing that calms the heart. He will keep in perfect peace the heart of those who trust and relies on Him, and confidently stays in the secret place of the Most High.
