Many people are plagued with fear, worry, concern and doubt. Yet over and over we see in the Bible how that we should not worry and fear. But it is innate to human beings. I believe that God wants to help us today. Recently I have been fearful and worried about a certain practical aspect of my life. I must admit that I found it difficult to release it to God. The moment that I thought I had released it I would begin to think of the problem from another angle. But as I managed to give it to Him, I was able to experience a release. What fears and burdens are you carrying today? Could you find the courage in your heart to give them to God?
OUR FEARS FOR TODAY
Human fears are many. Each individual has his/her own battle. We have fears regarding almost every conceivable aspect of life. It is highly likely that when you got up this morning you had some concern regarding this day on your mind. We do have fears about today. Are you facing any fears for today? It may be that you are fearful about where the next meal will come from, or that you are fearful that you may lose your job or your business or your health. God wants to take care of our fears for today.
OUR FEARS ABOUT TOMORROW
We have many fears regarding the future. Fears regarding a time frame that we know nothing about as yet. I remember my own mother telling me that she had two fears regarding my life. The first was that there would be no money to pay for my university training and second that there would be no money to give me a decent 21st birthday party. Both these fears never realised. I have discovered that the fear of the future and the ‘unknownness’ of the future, is something many people really battle with.
Romans 8:38-39 For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from His love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels won’t, and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God’s love away. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, or where we are – high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean – nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when He died for us.
