Thought of the Day July 26, 2022 Do not be afraid

By 10:28 AM


What is the fear that holds us in bondage? Is it the fear of failure, or of unworthiness, or loneliness? Whatever it is, it is rooted in a lie. Thus, the way to overcome the lie is to speak and believe in the truth. The lie of failure is based on passed experiences. The truth is that we are called not to live in the past but in the present, being aware of the grace of God.  We have made mistakes in the past, we are not a mistake. We can't change the past but we can make decisions in the present moment that are in keeping with our relationship with God. Jesus told Jairus when the servants told him his daughter had died, fear not, but trust.  In other words, put your trust in me and not in your fear. Hear the words of Jesus in your own heart, "Do not be afraid, I am with you. Keep your eyes on me." As we grow in our relationship with God through love, then the strength of the bondage of that fear will become lessen, until "perfect love casts out all fear."
