You Don't Have to Fear 2008


Isn't this a great Scripture with which to start the New Year?!! We don't have to step into the unknown alone with "Father Time." Our Heavenly Father promises He will be with us.

What a difference it made to us as children, when we had to go into a scary place, to have Dad with us. Just his presence assured us that we didn't need to be afraid. Human dads may not always be there and may not always be able to keep us safe, but our Heavenly Father never leaves us nor forsakes us. He is all powerful and is in complete control. If we fully trust Him, there is nothing to fear.

But life teaches us that sometimes He allows things into our lives that may cause us to ask "Why, Why Father?" And in our weak moments we may even allow discouragement to slip in. But if we listen to the still small voice of His Spirit, we will hear - "Don't be discouraged, my child, remember I am God almighty - the victory is sure to come! I will strengthen and help you. Let My peace fill your heart and mind. I am going to be with you and help you all the way! Together we will make it, just trust Me.”

Let's pray -
Father, for anyone struggling with fear today, I ask that you would just put your arms around them and hold them close to your heart until all fear has melted away.
Thank you, Lord.
Amen

I wanted you to know how much these scriptures have meant to me and they always seem to be so
appropriate for what is happening in my life at the time they arrive.
My sister and her family are going through some very rough and trying times right now and I have shared many of your scriptures with them.

Thank you for your prayers for my wife, Jane, while she was at the Mayo hospital. Thank you for the promise from God and also the scriptures. They are more
meaningful to me then you know.

May God bless you.
