Praise the Lord you are here. It is good to seek Jesus — our Savior.
Our Focus today is — Fear.
God tells us many times over – to have no fear. We can be thankful for His love and guidance to trust in Him.
“When I get really afraid I come to you in trust.” (Psalm 56:3)
Fear is a powerful, unreasonable emotion. It influences how you think and react, and it even affects your physical well-being. Fear will stop you from reaching your full potential or from allowing your loved ones to be all they can be.
You know God is directing you in a certain way but you refuse to step out in faith because of your apprehensions.
Understand that your fear is based on an expectation of punishment — you believe it’s inevitable that only bad things will happen.
Instead, you must focus on God’s character. God is all-powerful, all knowing, and completely loving.
So, obey Him — He’ll only lead you in what’s best for you.
With God, you never have to be afraid.
“In God, whose word I praise, in God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me?” (Psalm 56:4)
With bowed head pray:
Lord, fear is a powerful influence in my life. Help me to obey you in faith and trust you in and out of the storms of my life.
