This phrase, and it came to pass, is written many times in the gospels. It came…so it could pass! What a statement! Thinking about it this way will alleviate many fears and worries if you let it.
I am reminded what Abraham Lincoln said, “This too shall pass!” He probably got it from the Bible because God said it so many times in His Word.
One of the things that stirs in me is that in one hour things can change. I heard a man of God say that and it has stuck with me for decades. And, I might add, that I have seen it play out many times in my life and in the lives of others. It came—so it could pass!
2 Corinthians 4:18 (KJV) 18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
1 Corinthians 10:13 (KJV) 13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
Brothers and sisters, we need to do our utmost to never worry or stress about anything that confronts us because God has promised that He will make a way of escape for us. BUT, we have to believe Him and rest in His Word.
Remember, fear and worry will negate your faith – cancel it – and it won’t produce your desired results. Stick with God’s Word and watch His miraculous power manifest in your life!
