“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God]; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." John 14:1-3
There are three great promises in these well-known and well-loved verses.
These three promises are given in the context of overcoming or avoiding anxiety.
You need never be overwhelmed by life or by death if you will keep these promises in mind.
What are the three promises?
Jesus says, "I care!" And, by implication God cares, too.
And Jesus says, "I prepare!" And, by implication God does too!
Thirdly, Jesus says, "I am there!" So is God!
Jesus promised that if He goes away He will come again to be with us. And He will!
That is comforting news! But there is better news! God the Father can be there (Heaven) and be there with you!
Whatever you need and wherever you are, He will be there!
Until you get to be where He is He will be there with you - always!
Don't let your heart be troubled! Instead remember you have a Father Who cares for you, Who prepares for you and He is there for you!
