In the midst of great anxiety, how are we to respond? Alistair Begg answers this question with hope from the assurance God has given us in His Word. Christians are not to dismiss or ignore our worries, but we are to cast our anxiety on Christ, knowing that He cares for us personally.

Our hearts’ natural tendency is to be anxious and fearful. We often believe or act as if a situation’s outcome depends solely on us. In contrast, Alistair Begg helps us understand that our willingness to not take matters into our own hands is an expression of humility. As we cast our anxieties on God and remember His provision for us on the cross, we learn that His care extends even to the tiniest details of our lives.

What does it mean to live in peace, to live in the security of God’s abiding love and faithfulness? Alistair Begg shares some of the challenges and hindrances that stand in the way of the peace God promises to His children. When we humble ourselves under the jurisdiction of God, we can cast off all hopelessness and anxiety, secured by grace in His care for us.

Jesus’ calming of the storm demonstrated that He is the ruler of all nature. There’s more to the story, though. The disciples were not in their predicament because they made foolish choices, but because they obeyed Christ—and as Alistair Begg explains, when God leads His people into storms, He goes with us. Instead of allowing trials to separate us from the assurance of God’s love, then, we can let life’s tempests drive us to greater dependence on Him.

Disease, suffering, and death may shape our lives, but they must not define us. Alistair Begg draws comfort from Scripture’s teaching that these sufferings awaken our sense of longing, leading us to rely on God. Christians must articulate this worldview with kindness and sensitivity. We don’t believe in a God who created the universe only to leave it alone. Instead, we know the Lord works intimately in His world, and we can trust Him as our personal, loving Savior.

Worry is like telling our omnipotent God the unthinkable: “I don’t trust You.” Yet worry is still a struggle for many who have experienced God’s goodness—even mature believers. Reflecting on Jesus’ words about anxiety, Alistair Begg explains that we can think rightly about our troubles when we view them in light of God’s Word. Only then will we trust our burdens to the One who can truly bear them.

Like David, many of us have seasons in our soul where it seems like it’s winter all the time. Often this kind of depression is the result of having the wrong perspective of our circumstances. While we need to realize the depth of our sin, we must not be despairingly overcome by it. Scripture calls us to trust in God’s unfailing love and rejoice in His salvation. If David could do this by looking forward to the coming Messiah, how much more should we who have clearly seen what was done for us in Christ?

It can be difficult to find hope in bleak circumstances. In Lamentations 3, the prophet Jeremiah chronicled adversity that led him to feel depressed and hopeless. He then recalled God’s steadfast love, mercies, and faithfulness, bringing his heart’s emotions under his mind’s jurisdiction. Alistair Begg examines Jeremiah’s mind-altering moment, reminding us that by keeping focused on who God is, we too can experience His comfort, hope, and security in any situation.
