“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?

Jesus understands you when you are troubled in the depths of your heart.  Notice, he doesn’t ask about fault or foolishness as the source of the trouble.  He just says, “Don’t let your heart be troubled.”  His solution is a reorientation of thinking that covers all situations. He calls us to believe in God and to believe in him.  That is a monumental statement.  Through faith in your crucified and risen saviour you are forgiven, no matter how wrong or foolish you have been.  He then gives assurance of everlasting life. “I am going to prepare a place for you,” with the Father, with Jesus forever.  Think about it.  What is troubling you?  If you are feeling at all guilty, Jesus has dealt with it.  Troubled by the future?  It is ultimately going to be perfect with your God.

There can be other things that will trouble us but knowing the Lord forgives, accepts, and loves you; that he has a glorious eternity for you, provides a framework for you to face anything today.  Bring all your anxieties to him in prayer knowing that he cares for you more than you could imagine.
