THROUGH THE MEADOWS

BEING TRANSFORMED into the image of the SON OF GOD,

in the FAMILY OF GOD, on the MISSION OF GOD.

Be encouraged by reading reflections on God's Word written by a variety of people from The Meadows Church family. Our hope is that this may strengthen you in your faith as we use the Bible to point each other to Jesus. May God's Word direct you to the Word of God.

"He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers."

- Psalm 1:3

FAITH OVER FEAR

Vinay Dhanrajani

August 16th, 2021

We all face challenges - some through the circumstances and others through the people around us.  Recently, a challenge that I have been facing for quite some time caused me to be worried and anxious; costing me peace and joy. 

 

As I went through the day asking God if He still cared for me, I thought through Mark 4:35-41. It was there that Jesus reminded me of what I needed at the time - faith (in Him) over fear. 

 

In the story, as Jesus leads the disciples “to the other side” of the waters, they face a storm. Upon being woken up by the disciples, Jesus calms the storm with His word. Amidst all of this, He questions the terrified disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

 

Worrying and anxiety are Satan’s deception, causing us to believe that GOD is not with us. But even through our most frightful circumstances, He is with us, leading us “to the other side.”

 

After all, He has promised to never leave us or forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6-8).
