"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me" (John 14:1).

When trouble comes your way, thank God that you can go to His wonderful Word. It doesn't matter what the situation is, God's word holds true in every situation, and God is there to send your troubles to flight when you trust Him.

Now the word "trouble" here means stirred up or agitated. Don't allow situations to stir you up and agitate you. Trusting in God is the key to not allowing your heart to be agitated and stirred up. Take a look at verses 26-27: "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in (Jesus) my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

Jesus has given you His peace. That means that His peace is available and you can tap into it. You can be sure that His peace is well able to calm your fears. That peace is supernatural and is able to bring you to a place of quietness and assurance of God's love for you and protection for your life. Because of this peace, Jesus tells us to not be afraid and don't allow ourselves to be troubled. See to it. That is a decision that you must make.

You need to decide right this moment, right now while you are reading this devotion, to stop all fear right now. Say, "I'll not be afraid." You need to turn that T.V. off for your young children. And you need to tell your children what the Bible says about the situation. Tell them, "don't you worry about it. Things will be all right. The Lord's on our side. What can man do unto us? No need to worry when God is with us."

I want to tell you to do as Jesus said, "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me." When you believe that Jesus is your deliverer, then you receive His supernatural peace.

Scripture reference: Isaiah 32:17; Philippians 4:6-9
