Word of the Day:Have faith and do not fear
Going through the news whether through the television, radio, newspaper or e-news, we come across many stories that are frightful and can cause worry in our lives. However, as children of God, we can hold on to His word where He tells us not to fear.
Sometimes though, we find ourselves living out our lives like frightened lambs in fear and anxiety. When Jesus said we should not fear He meant that we are to put our total trust in Him. The opposite of fear is faith meaning when we have Faith in God, we are letting go of our anxieties and worries and choosing to fully depend on God.
Whenever we find ourselves falling in the pattern of being fearful, let us proclaim God’s word in our lives. If we find ourselves prone to being fearful quite often then we need to take practical action. This is by memorizing Bible verses that encourage us not to fear and to learn how to trust in God. Remember, the perfect cure for fear is to trust in God.
Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
