Fear can be a strong emotion when I am faced with situations out of my control, when things are unsure. Fear of things that may or may not come to pass in our nation, fear about how it will affect my life, my family’s life. But I have a choice.
If I choose to fear the storm my faith is in its power.
If I choose to fear for my life, my faith is in myself and how I might survive.
If I choose to fear for my future, my family’s future my faith is in what the future might bring.
If I choose to fear my enemies, my faith is in their ability to harm me.
Or, I can choose to have faith in God who tells me “Do not be afraid”.
Father God help me to put my faith in Your power. You are greater than anything I fear. You are more powerful than anything that may come against me. Help me to choose to trust You when You say “do not be afraid”.
