Do Not Fear, Be of Good Courage

Focus Verse: "And we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love ... There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear" (1 John 4: 16, 18, NIV).
Globally, these are difficult times. We are beset with many problems that cause fear and anxiety in  our hearts.
What is causing fear in your life today?  What  is bothering you when you go to sleep at nights? Your Father knows these fears, and he invites you to give them to him.
In my own life there are situations that trouble me, and cause my heart to fear every day. But I am learning to give God my troubles daily.  Of course, this has been a slow learning process for me, but thank God, I'm leaning on my Father, more and more each d
Today, like me, ask yourself this question, "Why should I live in fear when I have the love of God that drives out all my fears?" God loves us so much the he gave his only Son so that we can enjoy life to its fullest.

What a great price to pay for our redemption? In that price God has already made the provisions to meet every single need we have. In the YouTube video below, Don Moen sings, "God will make a way."

Open up your heart daily to receive God' love that can remove all your fears. No matter what is the object of your fear, God is with you. When you understand this deep in your heart, you can walk in faith instead of fear and anxiety.
Focus Question: What steps will you take to stand on God's promises instead of walking in fear in the challenging situations you are facing today?
Prayer: "Heavenly Father, thank you that you have given me power, love and sound mind, instead of fear. Today, I stand on your promises, and walk in your love, free from fear. Amen"
