What do a dark room, a tall building, and spiders have in common?
They all top the list of things people fear. While those may be the first things that come to mind, I actually believe there’s another list of top fears that are perhaps even more common. Things like fear of what other people think or fear of failure. Fears over what might happen to people we loved or fear based in uncertainty about the future in general.
Fear is such a big part our lives and can keep us from all that God has in store for us. This week I’m going to spend each day giving up some of my biggest fears. Over 300 times in the Bible God reminds us that with Him on our side we have no reason to fear.
To get us started today, here is one of my favorite:
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)
Jesus, help us to give up fear today and every day, resting in your hands and trusting your provision for us. In your name we pray, Amen!
