Nothing to Fear!
As a son or daughter of God our Father, we can rest in peace and shun fear of anything because we have our heavenly Father who has our back.A few months ago I read that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth...
Then a few sentences further in Genesis chapter one, I read that God said the following:
"Let there be light..."Then I read a special emphasis verse that God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
"Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters..."
"Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place..."
"Let the earth bring forth grass..."
"Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens..."
"Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures..."
"Let the earth bring forth the living creature..."
"Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness..."
I was super excited (and still am) as I read it because it describes the person of our Heavenly Father - God.
He is a creator and He is all powerful and not only that He loves His children and protects them. How awesome is that? The creator of the universe and everything that's in it has our back.
Knowing that God has your back, you should be super excited also.
So what's holding you back from letting go of that fear? Ponder the following words from the Bible:
"Fear not, for I am with you;After you allow the above words to simmer in your heart, write them on the tablet of your heart, that is, memorize them.
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’"
-Isaiah 41:10 (NKJV)
If you memorize them, you will be able to easily recall them when you begin to fear.
Thank you Jesus for loving us and saving us! Help us to stay focused on You and Your promises that we may fear nothing.
