No Fear

Do you ever feel afraid? I mean, really . . . we ALL do, right? Like telling your parents you messed up, or letting your best friend know she hurt your feelings big time, or perhaps freezing up when you’re speaking in front of a crowd? Are you afraid you’ll never be able to do what your heart longs to do? Like singing? Dancing? Or making the basketball team?shutterstock_78893794

Well . . . just so you know, God doesn’t want us to fear. He commands us not to. Isaiah 41:10 says, “Do not fear, for I am with you . . . I will strengthen you and help you.”

Did you know the Bible says to not fear over 100 times? Do you think God’s trying to tell us something?

So what do we do instead? Just turn everything over to Him, and watch what He’ll do. Know that He’s there to help. Walk by faith. And faith is trusting God to work things out . . . that is, everything . . . far greater than we could EVER imagine!

Just remember . . . the next time you start feeling afraid, STOP, because God’s got it taken care of. He really does. And isn’t it awesome that your loving heavenly father tells you to do exactly that?!
