what I learned today

day 128

Our church has a daily Bible reading posted on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/cccwired?fref=ts this makes it very easy to spend time reading God's Word daily.

Today's reading was all about fear.

There are different ways to look at fear.
-Our world is evil and full of really scary things over which we have no control
-There is no escape from conflict and fear in this life
-I find myself fearing most anything that I cannot control

There is the logical way of looking at fear
-Worrying and being afraid won't change anything, I know this but still battle fear at times

I've said it many times, I have NO idea how people watch the news, see the suffering and listen to all the evil that fills the world without the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ!

And thankfully this is God's way of facing fear and encouraging us

-God said the following...  “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed.”

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling.—Your life is hidden with Christ in God.

He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.

“I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

I rest in Him...
