The Remedy for a Troubled Heart!
From Timeless Grace Gems
James Smith



        "Let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God believe also in Me!" John 14:1

        We often trouble ourselves. We often allow our hearts to be tossed about like the waves of the sea, without any real cause. Our Savior forbids it. He forbids it in tender love. He forbids it because it is injurious. Inward commotion, or confusion, such as is referred to in the text, unfits us for social duties, pious exercises, and usefulness in the church of God. It lays us open to temptations, and fosters unbelief and anxiety. Our Lord would have us calm, patient, and composed; therefore He says, "Let not your heart be troubled!"

        He prescribes a remedy for heart trouble, or inward anxiety:

        1. "Believe in God." Believe in God as your Father as loving you, acting for you, and rejoicing in your welfare. See Him . . .
        ordering all events with consummate wisdom;
        overruling all with infinite skill; and
        sanctifying all to your welfare, by His sovereign grace.

        There is no room for 'chance' for His government is perfect.

        There can be no unkindness for His love is infinite.

        All will be directed right for He personally superintends every detail in the universe!
        The floating of the atom,
        the rolling of the sea, and
        all the movements of every mind
        are alike under His control and direction!

        "He works all things after the counsel of His own will."

        2. "Believe also in Me." Believe. . .
        that I sympathize with you;
        that I feel the deepest interest in your welfare;
        that I never withdraw my eye or heart from you for one moment;
        that I will support you in every place, and under every trial;
        that My arm shall be stretched out for you, to lean upon, as you come up out of the wilderness of this world;
        that I will save you to the uttermost;
        that I will show you a brother's love;
        that I will stand by you as a firm friend in every distress;
        that I will overturn all the designs of your foes against you!

        Believe that I will fill my characters in your experience, as your Savior, Brother, Friend!

        Believe that I will fulfill my word to you; every promise, the largest, the kindest "for Heaven and earth shall pass away but my word shall not pass away, until all be fulfilled."

        "Let not your heart therefore be troubled. It does not befit you as My redeemed child. It is injurious to you. It dishonors me. It can do no good. Therefore watch against it, as against a foe! Pray against it, that you may have grace to overcome it. Strive against it, for it is your duty. Always view worry as an evil, as an evil which it is possible to overcome. View it as . . .
        inconsistent with your profession,
        as injurious to your soul,
        as dishonoring to your God."

        There is no cause for you to be troubled, for your God performs all things for you. It is inconsistent for you to be troubled, for your Savior has bequeathed you His peace. It is sinful for you to be troubled, for you are bidden to cast all your care upon the Lord, and are assured that He cares for you. All your worry will not change the color of a hair, will not weaken the power of one foe, will not lighten a single burden it is therefore folly as well as sin!

        The remedy is before you. It was prescribed by the great Physician; it has proved effectual in innumerable instances; it is just suited to you, it was intended for you! Will you use it, and prove its beneficial effect?

        Remember Jesus, that Jesus who . . .
        lived for you,
        labored for you,
        suffered for you,
        died for you,
        rose for you, and
        is now in Heaven pleading for you
        says, "Let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God believe also in Me!"

        Be still, my heart   these anxious cares,
        To you are burdens, thorns, and snares;
        They cast dishonor on your Lord,
        And contradict his precious Word!

        Did ever trouble yet befall
        And He refuse to hear your call?
        And Has he not His promise past,
        That you shall overcome at last?

        He who has help'd me hitherto.
        Will help me all my journey through,
        And give me daily cause to raise
        New Ebenezers to His praise!
