TOPIC: FEAR NOT
Read: John 6:18-20
But He said to them, "It is I; do not be afraid.
On daily basis, we encounter fear-inducing phenomena. By so many things, we are distressed. Our fears and worries range from our failures to meet all our needs, as if we are the makers of ourselves, to the fear of uncertainty over the future as if we are creature of mere chance and accident. We don't always realise that we have been providentially catered and cared for, from the ages. Ladies fear is on who, how and when to marry. Some leaders fear the people under them; and that influences their decisions; they are often distressed about betrayal, denial, disloyalty, etc. Couples are usually fearful of spousal unfaithfulness, infidelity and separation. The rich are losing their sleeps and peace to the tendencies to lose all they have worked for, while the poor are afraid of remaining forever in penury. We all have fears. Only God has the fear not message that douse the fear of the world. Make sure you don't live in fear. Nothing kills faster than fear. Shakespeare said, a coward dies many times before his death. Jesus told the terrified disciples of His not to be afraid. What differentiates the son from the slave is fear (Romans 8:15). A son is confident in the fact that his father is available. There is an awareness of unshakable security, as long as he sees the father. We are children of God and descendants of lion of the tribe of Judah, and the Bible says the righteous shall be bold as lion. That is talking about you. Fear not!
1.Lord, continue to be my rock, buttress, refuge and strong tower.
2.Lord, help me to overcome everything trying to terrorise me, in Jesus' name.
3.Lord, deliver our nation from insecurity, insurgency and insufficiency.
