I’ve said it before.
I’ll say it again.
Please hear me.
There is much going on in our world today that causes fear.
Fear is a necessary response to some things.
Fear alerts us to problems.
Fear let’s us know that we need to take action.
Several years ago I read “The Gift of Fear” by Gavin De Becker, and found it very helpful.
Well it turns out now, that he has written yet another book on fear.
Which I have not yet read.
But I will.
Here is what I want you to hear, from a book that I HAVE read. A lot.
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. Isaiah 41:10 (ESV)
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:17 (ESV)
I am not at all saying I am never afraid, what I am saying, is that I must choose not to let fear overtake me.
I must leave this very strong emotion in the hands of the One who loves me most.
Whatever happens, He is still on the throne.
Until next time.
