Standing at the beginning of a year, I’m sure we all have mixed emotions. There are exciting things to look forward to, opportunities to take hold of, but also certain areas of our lives that could bring anxiety to our hearts.
Unsure of what this year holds, we gaze into the darkness of tomorrow, and our hearts might wonder what evil could be lurking in the shadows.
Fear knocks at the door.
No one was there.
FEAR is simply False Evidence Appearing Real. Fear is a lie, merely a shadow, but if we shine God’s Word as a powerful lamp, the shadows disappear, and we see “no one was there”.
There is nothing to be afraid of this year, for Jesus is already there.
God knows what we need before we ask, and our loving Heavenly Father has already made provision for it all. He goes before us preparing the way. He is faithful.
Ask the Lord for His promise, for His word concerning the area that’s causing you worry. For every problem, there’s a promise. For every challenge, there’s courage found in God. When God is near, fear is far.
The Psalmist says it succinctly, ”Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” (Psalm 119:105).
May God’s promises dismiss your every fear and strengthen your faith to overcome this year, in Jesus name.
