Fear leads to worry and obsession. It causes us to overreact or become paralyzed. When you feel the anxiety rising up in your throat, fear not. Do not let fear reign over you, for the Lord is with you. God tells us not to worry because He knows our needs! Our Lord Jesus Christ will show us His love and mercy. God is one person I know that no matter what I can rely on Him.
When the fear begins to rise up, conquer it! The Lord is more powerful than fear. Seek Him, He will provide peace, comfort, and understanding. There is no need to fear because in the midst of troubles, God promises to be our strength. Lean on your good God during hard times, and run the race of life with confidence!
Today, consider what it means to have a relationship with God. Some days we need just a bit more grace and a bit more peace. By the end of the day, it feels like we are just barely hanging on. When you feel your patience wearing thin, turn to God; He will give you the grace and patience you are seeking for. God is your Creator and He knows how to protect you, if you will allow Him.
Praying is a way to defeat fear. Prayer has a way of filling you up with energy, restoring, and recharging. It’s very important if we take time to pray to the Father and restore ourselves. If you are able, take today to draw away, in order to draw close to the Lord. If today isn’t possible, plan a day this week to do this. Pray! Pray!!
My friends, fear is not from God. God wants us to be strong and courageous. He wants us to have faith in Him. Trust and believe!!
Isaiah 41:10 ESV
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
