Don't worry, be ... sleepy!


On Sunday, Mike preached on Psalm 3. If you know Psalms 1 and 2 to be true, you can begin to learn not to worry. As the Colin Buchanan goes, "The Lord is King, he's gonna look after everything." David, in a nightmare situation ... well, he doesn't have a nightmare. He can sleep sound. Because he knows the Lord is taking care of it all. Two lines stood out in the sermon for me. The first was that it's not about peace from trouble, but peace during trouble. God doesn't make life easy, but helps us through the difficulties. And second, there's nothing God likes more than to hear his children's prayers. The way God loves to work is in answer to our prayer for help. Not that no harm will ever come to us - but ultimately, he will deliver us.
