Today our Senior Pastor Dilan Jayasinghe brought us the final message in our current series “Living under the real King”. Today’s message was “A shocking end” from 1 Samuel 31.
Are you anxious?
On the 5th of October 2021 nearly 7 billion people worldwide (me included) were plunged into a social media blackout. Facebook, messenger, WhatsApp, Instagram and other related social media apps stopped working for more than 6 hours. It was a devastating blow for those who were already suffering from FOMO (fear of missing out).
Although we have come up with all sort of creative ways to keep us informed, not knowing everything is part of being finite – that’s how our infinite God created us to be. He didn’t do that so we would be anxious, worried and crippled with fear. Rather he created us that way for the exact opposite reasons.
Jesus encouraged his disciples, to seek God instead of worrying about what to wear, eat, drink and of the future because their heavenly Father knows what they need. (Matthew 6 31-34). The apostle Paul urged Christians “not to be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6). You do the praying let Him do the worrying!
Not knowing everything is good for us because it draws us near to the God who knows everything.
