How did you wake up this morning? Did you wake up in fear? Are you fraid? I am fully aware this question may sound crazy to the soldiers hidden in a trench while bullets and bombs are flying by, knowing their life can be taken at the blink of an eye. It may sound ridiculous to parents whose child is wandering in the streets, subjected to the dangers they may meet.
Yet, I asked, how did you wake up this morning? Are you afraid? Are you fearful of the turmoil in the world today? Killings after killings; some standing, some sitting, some watching, as others kneel to pray?
“Fear ye not?” Does this really apply to me?
So who is He, that said to me, “Fear ye not,” when I’d rather flee? Really? Is He crazy? Could it be that He knows something that I may not? For at times it seems I’m shaking in my boots! So who is He, that said to me, “Fear ye not,” but,”Come unto me?”
I know of only One that could be so bold. He is the Savior of my soul. I know of only One whom I can rely; times I may be afraid, He hears my cry.
He is Jesus, our Savior, the Almighty King, who is willing to take away our fear in everything. Why not give Him all our fears today? Why not stop worrying, what come, what may? Jesus is ready to take all fears right now. “Casting all your care upon him for he careth for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
Today, let us say, thank you Jesus; we have no need to fear. Help us to continue to look to you and pray. Help us to thank you every time, because you’ve “not given us the spirit of fear; but of power; and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7.
Through fearful times, I encourage you to keep on thanking God.
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4
In God, I will keep on thanking. By Hertistine Washington
