Left unchallenged, these twin troubles of the heart can be costly. They zap energy, steal away courage, interfere with compassion, and worst yet, they can destroy vision. Sometimes the cure for a troubled heart requires tenderness and sometimes toughness. Either way, anxiety and discouragement are not to be tolerated by those who believe in God. They must be fought. They must be brought under the submission of faith.
But let not your heart be troubled. God has the future covered. There is no place for anxiety. And, Jesus has the past covered so there is no value in discouragement. Believe it. God is working. Repeat that to yourself as often as necessary.
Take Away: Let not your heart be troubled. God has the future covered.
