An unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or threat. Afraid.
But now, this what the Lord says, He who has created you, Jacob, he who formed you Israel. Do not fear, for I have redeemed you, I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
As we take a moment to think about what role fear plays in our life; ask yourself the question of how much power you give fear? For me, fear can control a lot of moves that I make and how I make them. I am worried about the fact of knowing if it the right thing to do? Will God still love me if my decision was not the right one? The truth is that God loves us, he never stops loving us. It is as as a people that turn our backs or walks away from Him. We give fear the power to give and take away. Fear does not deserve such a right. Christ is all around us and walks side by side with us every day. The purpose of the Holy spirit is to comfort. We were given the Holy spirit to help find our way to faith, faith that fear will not control us or keep us from our Father. Have the faith that God has given us. Faith knowing that no, not everyday will be easy to weather through but faith that God is with you and you will be able to weather it with God by your side to go through it with you.
