Fear Not

" ...God hath not given us the spirit of fear ..." 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV) 

Dear Farther, throughout the Scriptures, You have encouraged us to "Fear Not." You make this possible and practical because of Your grace, love and power given us through faith in Jesus Your beloved Son and confirmed with the gift of the Holy Spirit. We do not need to fear life, death, or the future. All of these Jesus overcame through His suffering, death and resurrection

You take the fear out of life by Your presence: "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." 6 So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6 (NIV)  

You take the fear out of death by Your power: "Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil--15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death." Hebrews 2:14-15 (NIV) 

You take the fear out of the future by Your promise: " have been called to one glorious hope for the future." Ephesians 4:4 (NLT) 
" Scripture says: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love him.”  1 Corinthians 2:9 (GW) 

Thank You Father that we need to fear because Your presence gives us peace, Your power gives us freedom and for Your promise  gives us hope.  

In the name of our glorious risen Savior. Amen.
