Don't Give in to Your Fears

Description

Your fears reveal where you do not trust God. He is watching over you, so don’t give in to them.

“From such terrible dangers of death he saved us, and will save us; and we have placed our hope in him that he will save us again.” (2 Corinthians 1:10 TEV)

God is watching over you, so don’t listen to your fears. This is a choice. Trust God, and don’t give in to your fears.

2 Corinthians 1:10 says, “From such terrible dangers of death he saved us, and will save us; and we have placed our hope in him that he will save us again” (TEV).

God’s promise to believers is that, no matter what happens to us, he is working for our good — if we love him and follow him. If you're a believer, the Bible says all things are working together for good — not that all things are good but that they are working together for good.

That means we can stop listening to our fears. There is no difficulty, dilemma, defeat, or disaster in the life of a believer that God can’t ultimately get some good out of. There is no need to fear the future.

Your fears reveal where you do not trust God. Today, make a list of your fears, and ask God to help you identify why you have fear in those areas. Then, ask him to help you replace your fears with trust.

Now, this next step is important: Expect God to start helping you learn to trust him with each fear. Then, watch to see how he helps you.

Talk It Over

  • What fears have you identified?
  • Why do you trust God in some areas and not in others?
  • When have you seen God come through when you thought he wouldn’t?
