Faith Not Fear


"A righteous man will be remembered forever. He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD. His heart is secure, he will have No Fear."
PSALM 112: 6 –8

Who of us hasn't spent nights tossing and turning?

Nights when we look at the clock, and it barely moves. We lie there mulling over situations and issues, most of which we can do nothing about —but fearful of the outcome.

In John 14: 1, Jesus says, "Trust in God; trust also in me."

The answer to fear —is FAITH!

When I'm fearful for a loved one or something that's coming up in my life, I'm comforted and calmed as I meditate on who God is.

It helps me plant my faith in someone bigger than my fears.

The next time fear overwhelms you, think about who God is.

Look for a Scripture verse that underscores God's characteristics.

Then consider your situation in light of who He is.

Trust in God.

He will NEVER fail you, leave you, or forsake you.

You can count on Him!

From "Fixing My Eyes on Jesus" by Anne Graham Lotz

Stay Strong!

In Memory of D.L...
Lord, may eternal rest be granted to him and perpetual light shine upon him. Through your mercy Lord may he rest in peace in the love and promise of your holy Kingdom for all of eternity.
