The angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be to all the people. For there is born to you, this day, in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Don said, “Even though I could feel the tornado pulling the house down all around us, I was not afraid because I felt the presence of God surrounding us. I knew we were safe.”
Ellen said, “When the doctor said she didn’t think she could save my baby, I started to panic. But suddenly I felt a warm feeling pour over me like a blanket and I knew it was God wrapping His arms around me. At that moment I knew both me and my child would be fine. And we are.”
The world is full of sin, pain, sadness, suffering, and loss. And there are times when we will experience those things in our lives. But when we do, we have the full assurance that we have nothing to fear because when we are in Christ, we have the power of the Almighty to overcome anything that comes our way.
Live with the ‘no fear’ attitude and let Christ be the Ruler and Keeper of your life!
Pray: Jesus, thank You for being greater than my fears. I ask now that You give me a heart and mind that never fails to call on You so that I can live without fear and in full trust of Your promise to love and care for me. In Your name, I pray, Amen.
