Why are you afraid? Is it the fear of losing your job? Being sued? The new kid on the block? The clock of your life…ticking?
Fear corrodes our confidence in God’s goodness. We begin to wonder if God’s eyes are shut as ours grow wide. For all the noise fear makes and room it takes, fear does little good.
Fear never cured a disease. Never saved a marriage. Never saved a business. Faith did that!
The one statement Jesus made more than any other in the Gospels was “Don’t be afraid.” He says in Matthew 14:27, “Take courage, I am here.” In John 14:1, he says, “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.”
Fear may fill our world, but it doesn’t have to fill our hearts. It will always knock on the door—just don’t invite it in for dinner!
