LET WORRY TURN OUR ATTENTION TO GOD (2)    Hebrews 11:23-29

By faith he left Egypt, not being afraid of the anger of the king; for he endured as seeing him who is invisible. (v27)

Trust That He Can Sustain Us. David wrote “Cast you burden on the LORD, and He shall sustain you” (Psalm 55:22) Count On Him To Never Leave Us Nor Forsake Us. Worry is often a solitary burden. We tend to carry it alone. The more we worry, the more alone and helpless we feel. David also assured us of God’s presence in Psalm 139 where he said that God knew everything about him even before he was born (vv13-16) and that he could never escape God’s Spirit (vv7-12) Morning or night, land or sea, heaven or hell, God is there. David knew God’s ever – present care (Psalm 27:10) Isaiah knew of God’s ever-present care. The Lord said through him. “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed for I am your God.” (Isa 41:10) Moses knew it. “By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured as seeing Him who is invisible” (Hebrews 11:27) Joshua knew of it. God said to him, “As I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you.” (Joshua 1:5) The disciples knew of it, Jesus said to them just before He ascended, “I am with You Always, even to the end of the age.” (Matt 28:20) We know of it too. When Jesus gave that promise to His disciples, He was also talking to us. The next time you start to be overcome by worry, turn to God and remember that (1) He is in charge (2) He can carry your burdens (3) He is greater than your fear, (4) He can sustain you (5) He will never leave you.
