The doctor looks down. Clears his throat. Then slowly looks up.
You look up and are surprised to see the plant manager at your machine, he’s holding an envelope and looking very somber.
As the door opens, the first thing you see is two suitcases.
The phone rings. It’s never good news at 2:00 in the morning…
Bad news comes in so many ways. Some days it feels like you can barely catch your breath before the next discouragement finds its way to your door.
I have friends who are awaiting surgery, hoping for good results from medical tests and court cases. Others are looking for work…still. A few haven’t been able to sleep for the anxious thoughts invading their dreams.
God has a word for us today as we fear the bad news knock on our door: They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the LORD to care for them (Psalm 112:7, NLT)
The LORD is our shepherd, our healer, our door, our guide, bread, water, hope and light. No matter what it is we fear that could be waiting around the corner—God’s got it and you!
You can be confident in his care of and for you.
