Fear NOT!

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:8-11

God's word states many times for us NOT to fear. Fear is crippling and destroys faith.

Therefore, FEAR NOT for God brings you Good Tidings of Great Joy, in whatever situation you may be. You may rest your head upon His shoulder and be at peace, for He cares.

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32

Be not afraid, only believe. Mark 5:36b

Thank you Lord.

You are very blessed, with an abundant gift of knowledge and wisdom -- which you continuously reach out to touch others, very much like Jesus did as he walked this earth...

I have learned through many troubled times that the two strongest forces in our lives are 'FEAR'... and ... "FAITH"!! Every person must choose which path they will take, one leading to sadness and destruction; the other (FAITH!) which leads to true peace.

Jesus tells us the 'secret' to ridding our lives of 'fear'... "Cast ALL your cares (including fears!) upon me, for I careth for you. Jesus not only died for our sins, but He also reaches out to us daily, wanting to lift all of our burdens off from our weary shoulders and tells us to 'rest in Him'.

Whenever I start to fear something, I immediately turn to God and thank Him for sending His only Son, Jesus our Lord, to save us from our sins and all of the fiery darts of the devil.

I have found true peace,freedom from 'fear' in Psalm 46:10 -- "Be still ... and KNOW THAT I AM GOD."

Thank you Dr. Trudy, for reminding us that fear need not ever rule or ruin our lives! There is true victory from fear, in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior!
