Read: 1 John 4:18
”There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear…”
God is with us; therefore we do not need to fear. “God is with us, a very present help in times of trouble.”
Are you going through troubles? Are you afraid? God does not promise us a trouble-free life. In this life here on earth, problems may come. But God does promise us that, if we have accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, He will be with us always. His presence will be there to lead us and to guide us. The Holy Spirit lives within us.
“God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” You can ask God to give you courage in the face of fear. Do not focus on the problems of life. Focus on God; praise and trust Him; and He can give you peace in your heart. Give your troubles to Jesus Christ. Ask forgiveness for any sins you have committed. Ask God to lead you and guide you and show you how He wants you to live.
You do not need to be afraid. Some day as Christians we will live with God for all eternity. Now, here on earth, let us serve Christ and ask God to use us to help change the world for Him. For Jesus said “I am with you always, even to the end of the earth.” You can trust in God.
So, this week, let us pray and ask God to:
- Give us courage to face our problems with His grace and power
- Fill us with His Holy Spirit and teach us to rely on Him
- Protect our family and friends
YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE AFRAID ANY MORE! God will protect you with His presence. Trust in Him and, even in the midst of problems, God will be with you.
May God bless you!
