Trust in the Lord with all your heart
Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.
Proverbs 29:25 New International Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
What man should we fear? No man! Fear is such a paralyzing emotion. It robs us of courage and vitality, it removes our decision-making ability, and our strength. It causes us to do things we know we shouldn’t do and that we always regret afterwards. Fear is the opposite of faith and it steals our happiness and joy. Courage helps us step out of fear’s paralysis and into victory. But this kind of courage only comes to us when we fully understand our position in Christ. If we are in faith and trusting God there can be no room for fear in our lives. Satan cannot take our mind, our attitude, and most of all, he cannot take our relationship with God unless we let him do so. A relationship given to us through Jesus, as long as we trust in the Lord our God and stay in faith. Perfect love casts out all fear. And there is NO room for fear when your spirit is full of ‘Faith’, faith in God and what He is and can do!
Mighty Redeemer, thank You for triumphing over all that I would in the natural man fear. Thank you that You have not only given me Jesus in whom I trust, but a hope by which I can live victoriously. Thank You that you have not given me a spirit of fear, but of love, power, and a sound mind through my Conquering King and Lord, Jesus. In the mighty name of Jesus, I thank you.
