What are you fearful about?
Perhaps, you fear an illness, safety, finances or relationships. Despite how many different methods you try to ease your worries, only one thing is effective enough. That is fearing the Lord.
Fear in God means to trust in him. Trusting in his word,promises and that He is in complete control. It also means to focus on him. Reading and mediating on God’s word.
In Psalm 34 David teaches God’s children about fearing the Lord in our walk with him. Verses 4 says “I sought the Lord and he answered me; He delivered me from all my fears”. when we seek the Lord He is good and faithful in delivering us through our circumstances. He is the only one who can provide us with an everlasting joy. He is our true comforter and provider. So, whatever you fear know that God can deliver you through it. Nothing is to great for God.“we can take refuge in christ because He is good.” v8.
I encourage each and everyone to invest all your trust in God and believe that He is working it out for you.
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for each circumstance. They are reminders that you are working in my life and that I need you. I pray that you will deliver me from all my fears. I place all my worries in your hands, trusting that you will take care of me. Grant me peace and joy despite what I am facing and I pray that I will take refuge in you.
