October 17, 2016 HAVE NO FEAR
When we choose to show no fear, we are being bold. There are so many things to be afraid of these days. We could be afraid of our future as a nation. We could be fearful of losing our jobs. We could be worried about health issues. Fear is real when we allow it to be; however, we are told by God, the Authority on everything, that we need not fear. He tells us to be bold and strong and courageous! He reminds us He will personally go ahead of us and be with us so we don't have to be afraid. We can be bold and not fear but instead simply trust in God.
Deuteronomy 31:6 "So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you." (NLT)
Dear Lord, You tell us to have no fear. You tell us You are with us and will personally go ahead of us. Thank You, Lord. You know everything going on in this world. Knowing You are with us and ahead of our every move is so comforting. That comfort reminds us to have no fear. It reminds us to be bold rather than afraid. It reminds us if we step out for You in faith and trust, You will take control. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
We can get comfort from God knowing He is with us and personally going ahead of us when we stay focused on Him.
We can be bold and not fear when we keep our eyes on God.
We can be bold and not fear when we simply trust in God.
When we choose to show no fear to our enemies, we are trusting in God being bold.
We can be strong and courageous knowing God is more powerful than any man on this earth.
Psalm 118:6 "The LORD is for me, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?" (NLT)
Focus: Have no fear. The Lord is near. No one is more powerful and all-knowing as He is.
