When Jesus sent out his disciples to preach and teach and heal, he gave them specific instructions and meaningful encouragement. Knowing that his followers would experience struggles and fears, he offered them words of wisdom and support.
Jesus described the depth of love he had for his followers. He wanted them to know and remember that as they experienced persecution and fear, he would remain close to them and care for them. In fact, he told them that “even the very hairs of [their] head are all numbered” (Matthew 10:30).
Today, especially during these unusual and uncertain times, we see and hear people living in fear. Where is your level of fear these days? Doesn’t the fact that Jesus understands your needs and knows your concerns give you great comfort? Doesn’t the fact that he knows you so well he even knows how many hairs are on your head calm your fears? He knows your small everyday needs; he knows your large unexpected needs. He is present; he is powerful; he keeps his promises!
May the kindness, care and love of Jesus calm your fears and fill you with peace every day.
