Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? Mark 4:40
Where you are right at this moment does not take God by surprise. God knew about that problem involving your family, job, relationship, or health over 2000 years ago, long before Jesus even walked the earth! Ephesians 1:4 states that God has "chosen us in him before the foundation of the world." If we were chosen in God before the world began, then He also knew the problems that would confront us throughout the course of our lives before the world began as well. It is even stated, "Think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you" (1 Peter 4:12). If the Bible instructs us to think it not strange, God certainly does not think it is strange. God knew about the trial long before it ever began so you do not need to be afraid of it. The very next verse of 1 Peter states that "his glory shall be revealed" (1 Peter 4:13). Through faith, you can believe that you will come out of the adversity you are currently facing. You need not be afraid of what is going on in your life today because God knows exactly where you are and will be glorified in bringing you out of it! Believe that on today!
