Cure For Care
1. We have entirely too many fears for a people to whom the Lord has said, “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” (Isaiah 41:10).
2. We have far too many doubts and fears concerning God’s mercy, love, and grace for a people to whom the Lord has said, “Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out…I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish” (John 7:37; 10:28-30).
3. We spend entirely too much time grumbling and complaining about our trials and troubles for a people to whom the Lord has said, “In the world ye shall have tribulation but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
4. We have entirely too much attachment to this world and to this present life for a people who are looking for a city whose Builder and Maker is God (Hebrews 1:8-10). “We know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens” (II Corinthians 5:1).
