Today's Good News


11/03 Luke 9:12-13
Late in the afternoon the twelve disciples came to him and said, “Send the crowds away to the nearby villages and farms, so they can find food and lodging for the night. There is nothing to eat here in this deserted place.” 13 But Jesus said, “You feed them.” “Impossible!” they protested. “We have only five loaves of bread and two fish. Or are you expecting us to go and buy enough food for this whole crowd?”
We are fearful creatures. We cannot see how something will work out and our first thoughts are thoughts of fear. We can’t work. We can’t get well. We don’t have this or that. All of these things strike fear in our heart. It doesn’t matter whether the issue is real or imagined the fear is certainly real. Jesus calls us to a life of trust. I will trust the Lord and “walk thru the valley of the shadow of death” and fear no evil. Our Lord is good and He is seeking our best good. Trust Him and fear not.
