Why is it ok to be nonchalant? One of the best to answer that is Jason. He is because he considers himself like David. David defeated Goliath and the Philistines in 1 Samuel 17. The defeat seemed to have sparked strategic revenge. A few years they were ready to execute it. They captured David but the outcome was no what they expected. David was in the enemy's hands, but he was not panicking. Instead, he put his trust in the Lord.
David had a peace in knowing that his trust was in a mighty GOD. He trusted him so much. He did his part by praising his word. He did not fear and often thought that flesh could do nothing to him. Jason was never in David's situation, but he knew who was. It was his childhood friend, Michael. The two meets for breakfast each morning. On Wednesday June 3, 2020, it was unusual. Mike was visibly looking afraid of something. Jason noticed and expressed his concern about it.
Jason asked what is wrong. Mike replied, "I have been captured by the enemy". Jason rudely replied, "So what". Mike displayed the discomfort in his friend saying that. Jason knew it and explained why he did. Jesus taught his disciples the right mindset. The mindset to realize that man could kill the body but not the soul. Those, you do not fear. Jason explained this simply. So simple that Mike saw what he was saying. Jason told him that GOD's perfect love cast out fear.
He who dwells in the secret place of the highest shall abide. They shall abide under the shadow of the almighty. The lord is your refuge and fortress. So why not put trust in him? Be fully aware where you stand when you are afraid. Make the Lord your Hiding place. It is easier said than done in this world but, Jason makes it easy. That is why he is Nonchalant and why it is ok for you to be the same.
