Have you asked God not to disturb you? I am sure neither of us has actually said those words. Maybe we have come close, however.

Maybe we remember these words.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matthew 6:34 (NIV)

Trouble seems to show up on its own. We cannot avoid it. Therefore, we need a place to go when trouble hits. A place we can count on.

Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. Luke 1:29 (NIV)

When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. John 11:33 (NIV)

God, at times, troubles us in order to move us into action for the greater good. God see a need for a kick in the pants.

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God ; believe also in me. John 14:1 (NIV)

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."  John16:33 (NIV)

God is bigger than trouble.

How will trouble enter your life today?
