There are many people that live their lives, daily, in fear.
They are afraid of what happened, what is happening now, and what will happen soon.
Although we all have had experiences with fear, at some point in our lives, being fearful has to end. This no way to live a healthy life.
Well, what is a gal to do?
I’ll tell you what I had to do.
I had to learn that I can’t control everything and I’m not expected to.
I had to learn that there is a GREAT BIG GOD out there that cares about me and my family. He is the only one capable of controlling everything.
This task wasn’t easy, I must admit. Yet with all that it took within me, I wanted God to be in control of my life so that the things He promised me would happen. As I gave Him more control, He took the reins, and gave me peace.
That’s right! He took my anxiety and fear and gave me peace.
Now I walk, talk, and think differently.
365 times, in the Bible, God tells us not to fear.
That’s one time per day of the year.
Should anyone doubt the message, they could read it for themselves.
I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. ~Psalm 34:4
Did you get that?
The Psalmist says that He sought the Lord and the Lord heard him and delivered him from ALL of his fears.
I don’t know about you, but that encourages me. If God would do it for Him, why wouldn’t He do it for you or me? God isn’t a respecter of persons. He loves all of us the same.
Still one of the keys is that we have to be willing to call upon the Lord, give Him our fears, and take what He gives us in return. If we do this, our lives end up filled with peace.
I’ve made the step and I feel God’s peace resting on me daily.
Will you take this step?
Say that today will be the last day that you live in fear…
Be encouraged and trust God.
