I admit…as summer draws near each year, I get a bit nervous.
I start to wonder … I begin to question …
Has this year been enough?
Did we do enough? Learn enough? Explore enough?
Fear creeps in …..
And then, as always, God speaks. He reminds me of how Goliath was defeated in 1 Samuel 17. And how even after he defeated him, still David feared them when he was captured by them years later. Then, he put his trust in God. He chose to stand in faith.
We will all get hurt. it is inevitable. Something or someone will disappoint.
Yet Jesus tells us not to fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.
We ought, instead, to fear Him who is able to destroy body and soul.
It is a reminder that there is not one thing that happens to us, that the Lord doesn’t already know.
After all, He goes before us. 🙂
Tomorrow was already approved; we just need to be confident that the Lord’s plan is good and right.
Let us abide under the shadow of His wings.
Let the Lord be our hiding place.
Do not forget that HIs love, it is so very powerful.
His love is perfect and perfect love casts out fear.
We cannot forget this.
God does not want any of His children to live in fear.
Rather, He wants us to live strong and sure in Him.
Truly there is no place safer to be, than in God’s will.
