FEAR, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 10/8/19 (Across my desk this morning, and greatly needed.)
| “…Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go…”
(Joshua 1:9, NIV)
God says not to tremble or be dismayed by anything because He is with you wherever you may go. That is such an encouragement, and it’s absolutely true! You should be walking around in life without even the slightest amount of fear because that is not the nature God gave you. You should refuse to be defeated by the things around you, even if they seem insurmountable. Perhaps one definition of courage might be staying strong and moving forward even when most would give up and even surrender their ground to fear. Be strong and courageous for God today, and do not allow yourself to be defeated by fear or the unknown!
|A Prayer for Today|
|“God, I want to live and serve You boldly without being crippled by fear. Make me strong and courageous in Your power to do what You want me to do.”
There are hundreds of verses in the Holy Bible concerning fear. It would be impossible here to make a complete study at this but let me share a few verses that have been very helpful for me.
