“I can do everything through him who gives me strength” Philippians 4:13
God is so much bigger than our weakness. He helps us find STRENGTH and discover how it feels to NOT be afraid. Fear robs the heart of content. It steals joy and squelches opportunities to trust the One who guides. It festers where HOPE should be found and allows us to forget JESUS IS WITH US!
Fear stops us from welcoming calm. It perpetuates doubt in those who struggle. It leads us far from a place of wholeness and make us believe it will never go away. But the WORD of God provides HOPE when we open our eyes and remember who fights our battles.
The Bible says, “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. Isaiah 41:10
We don't have to be stuck in a place of pain, if we prayerfully seek the Savior. He will help us clearly see how to witness the voice of truth and learn to fear no more. Freedom will allow us to understand who has the power to save. We will recognize the blessing of surrender and find great wisdom along the way...
We may forget who is fighting our battles, as life changes every day. But if we remain rooted in God’s love, welcome the Savior and surrender the burden of fear, He will restore us. We don’t have to sit in shame. God will provide for our days. He will give wisdom to know how to handle anxiety. He will bring PEACE to our hearts and provide strength to sustain.
We are not alone! We must humble our hearts and never be afraid to let Christ lead us. We WILL find comfort and calm. There will never be a day without the goodness of His love. We must focus on what is good. When negative thoughts try and fill us with worry, we must demand that they STOP! As we pray in Jesus’ name, they WILL be removed..
We must not fear! We are loved and treasured. We were created to embrace abundant joy. We mustn’t waste time on thoughts which will never welcome peace. Do not fear! JESUS is HERE! He will help us find refuge in His love forever. He already knows about suffering.
Dear God,humble our hearts so we will witness the power of Your holiness. Thank you for helping us remember who fights our battles. In faithful surrender, we will pray and welcome peace from the Holy Spirit. Thank you for knowing what we need. Helps us feel stronger than before, as we face dreaded doubt and learn to cope with HOPE. Give us courage to release our worries, as we step in faith and follow Jesus. Arm us with everything we need to battle anxiety. We know YOU are BIGGER than fear. Thank you, Lord. We will put our TRUST in You and choose to embrace this day with a grateful heart. We will remember why there will never be a day without the strength of Your perfect love. Amen
