How many times have you started a sentence, “I’m afraid…?” You can end that sentence with anything – “there won’t be enough money,” that I’m going to get sick,” “of what’s happening,” “that he/she doesn’t love me anymore,” “that I’ll never measure up.” Those words “I’m afraid” sneak their way into our conversations, and before we know it, fear becomes a part of our lives. It dictates our decisions, stops us from fully believing who we are in Christ, and derails us from stepping into the peace that God promises us in His Word. But God’s Word tells us that He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7) and that we should not fear – for He is with us (Isaiah 41:10).

Today, allow the Lord to erase your fears and stand confidently with Him. He will strengthen you, help you, and uphold you with His righteous right hand. Amen.
