I’ll Try To Follow Their Example

With his back against the sea, an army filled with a lust for revenge closing in, and a people full of fear and doubt, Moses says, “don’t worry, our God has got this”.
With a magnificent city wall in front of him, a promised land full of enemies beyond it, and a generation of nomadic fair-weather believers as his army, Joshua says, “don’t worry, our God has got this”.
With a growling giant in front of him, a cowardly army behind him, and the eyes of the world upon him, David says, “don’t worry, our God has got this”.
While helpless and in a hole full of hungry lions, with only a group of murderous and turncoat colleagues above him, and a full night ahead before any possible rescue, Daniel says “don’t worry, our God has got this”.
While hanging on a cross by stakes pounded through his hands and feet, suffering from a multitude of injuries, bleeding and thirsty, abandoned and forsaken, Jesus says “don’t worry, I’ve got this”.

I am weary and frightened. I am unsure and tired. I grow overwhelmed and confused. I lay all I have at Gods feet and tell those I love “don’t worry, our God has this”.
