Thank you for joining me in my series 31 Days of Finding God. Each day I am going to use a prompt from Kate and incorporate that into how I am finding God in my everyday!
Today’s prompt is Fear!
I have struggled with fear for longer than I can remember not struggling with it.
It takes on different shapes and sizes, both rational and irrational.
It might be the fear of something terrible happening to my children, believing the “worst case scenario” when Dominic can’t answer the phone when he is travelling, fear that I will fail, or our business will, fear that I don’t and won’t measure up. Most of these are pretty crazy, but all something that I have dealt with over time.
So what can we do? I know that the enemy uses lies to manipulate me into being more fearful and it has to stop!!
When we are filled with fear we need to respond by arming ourselves with the truth! (<====Click to Tweet)
The best way that I have found to arm myself with truth is to look to the Bible for what God says about fear.
Deuteronomy 31:6 – “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
God goes WITH us. ALWAYS. Even when we are afraid and feel alone, God IS there.
Psalm 27:1 – “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
Having an understanding of who God is, how great His power and majesty is…knowing that He is the stronghold of my life should bring comfort shouldn’t it?!
Hebrews 13:6 – “The Lord is my helper, I will not fear. What can man do to me?”
Yes we will have troubles in this world, the Bible says that too. But ultimately I should be putting my faith in what I know. God has redeemed me through the blood of Christ. No one can take that away from me. People may slander my name or bring harm to me or my family…but in the end I WILL spend eternity with my Savior, my helper and stronghold. The God that goes before me is with me until the end.
Today that brings me peace.
In Him, Kristin
