Fear can be a powerful force. It can get control of your mind, motives and outlook and when it does you have no peace or security. Fear can steal your happiness, it can ruin relationships, and it can keep you from becoming all that God intended you to be.
But the good news is that we don’t have to live in fear. God tells us in Isaiah 43:1 that he has created us and he has formed us. He tells us not fear because he has redeemed us and called us by name and we belong to him.
What joy and peace it is to be a child of God and receive these blessings! It is so simple to do too, just believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins, tell Him you repent, confess Him as your Lord and Savior and accept the salvation He has for you (Romans 10:9 – 10). Let His love come into your heart and enjoy the new life He has for you.
So the next time life shakes your confidence and your path becomes hard and long, don’t give up, don’t become afraid, don’t let satan have the victory. Remember you have a Heavenly Father that loves you and cares about you. He knows your name and He wants to give you the very best.
