Scared : thrown into or being in a state of fear, fright, or panic
What makes you scared?
Leaves you anxious?
Although it is true that fear is a natural human emotion,
it is not designed by God to dictate our lives.
It is not His will that we, His beloved children, live in a state of fear, fright, or panic.
What scares you?
Perhaps the list is short.
Perhaps the list is yards long.
No matter the length,
fear has an antidote:
God is with us. God is for us.
Hear His words in Isaiah 41:10 (NIV),
“So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Let us hold tight to His promises and, like David, purpose,
“When I am afraid, I will trust in You” (Psalm 56:3, HCSB).
