All through the Scripture we see that the spirit of fear is not to be allowed to have a place in our lives. Dear children, say no to fear.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9 (ESV)
The first thing in that passage says we should be strong and courageous. Strength is needed to do anything in life. Fear is a tool of the devil to weaken our resolve to doing anything.
The Lord is always with us wherever we go. We should not be frightened or afraid of any harm.
Yes, there will be instances where we might be overwhelmed, but the assurance from God’s word is enough to bring us out and place us on top.
We have the assurance of protection from God himself, saying he is with us. It is this assurance that we need to succeed in life.
This means we can do anything because God is with us.
What are those dreams and goals in your heart? What are those aspirations in your heart?
You can do it, only fear not.
As parents, we can build confidence in our children with this scripture.
Furthermore, God tells us he has no plans to leave nor forsake us.
We should train our children to put their trust and hope in God, not in man.
What are the things that make you scared? List them. You can talk to your parents about them too.
Lord, help me to trust you. Take away the spirit of fear in me and build my confidence in you. Amen
My children know no fear because the Lord is with them always. They are not afraid to do new things because they have assurance from God.
