The other day, I was called into my son’s bedroom in the middle of the night. “There’s noises outside,” he exclaimed. I’m quite sure he thought he heard something like this:
I explained that grandpa and grandma’s cat wanted inside, so Sugar was yelling loudly to get some attention. Had Enoch looked outside, he would have seen something like this:
Enoch relaxed and slept peacefully the rest of the night.
Isn’t that the way it always is? We hear of wars and rumors of wars and get intimated. We see the first cat. We think of the worst possible situation. But our Heavenly Father comes alongside us. He explains the truth. Those noises aren’t nearly as scary as they seem in our head.
Sometimes, we just have to get victory over the battle of thoughts in our heads so that we can receive the blessing of rest and peace.
So, what’s the sound you’re hearing now? Is it the first picture or the second? Odds are, since Jesus already has final victory, it’s the second cat. Let’s take our eyes off the first cat and put them onto Jesus so He can show us that there’s nothing to fear.
