I don’t know about you but I’m so over all the “what if’s” this year has presented. I’m done wondering about them. I’m done even giving one once of my energy to fearing them. After all, why should I fear? I definitely don’t have to.
One of the things I have tried desperately to do this year is to guard my heart. So many crazy things have happened and are continuing to happen. So many opportunities to be influenced from outside voices, and be fearful have presented themselves every single day since all the panic started at the beginning of the year. But let me just tell you, God is good, and we don’t have to fear.
Why should I be afraid of man? He can’t take my soul.
Why should I be afraid of a virus? Or even the horrid and excruciatingly painful after effects it’s put on my body? To live is Christ, to die is gain. By his stripes I am healed.
Why should I be afraid of unrest in our nation? My rest is found in knowing Jesus.
Why should I be afraid if our economy crumbles? I live in the Economy of my Heavenly Father who owns it all.
Why should I be afraid of losing my freedom? Where the spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. I have found true freedom in Christ.
Why should I be afraid of one man or another becoming president? Jesus is the King of Kings, and still sits on His throne.
Why should I fear?
Why should I?!
I shouldn’t fear anything if I serve the Lord.
Neither should you.
Am I saying I’m okay with everything that’s going on? Absolutely not. I hate it. Am I saying I will be okay with it if some of the “what if’s” become reality? No way. But what I am saying is, I won’t let Satan pounce on me with fear any more. He is ready and waiting any time a new article comes out, a new news report hits the screen, a new diagnosis is added to my list. But I’m ready too. I’m ready with the truth. The truth that Jesus is all that I need, and is fighting for me on every side. Why should I fear knowing that I’ll be taken care of no matter what, and the Lord of all is right there beside me? I shouldn’t. I’m not going there any more and I hope you’ll join me in doing the same. ❤️
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or dismayed (intimidated), for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.””
Joshua 1:9 AMP
