Jesus, our world is a scary place right now. Please help me to trust You and be bold in my faith. Amen.

And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. 7 Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.

Therefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
