Jesus Frees You From Fear


How can you teach your children about staying in a place of peace versus feeling afraid?


Thank God that He promises to always be with you. Ask God to help you trust Him so that you can be free from the burden of fear.


Gather a stack of books. Choose a family member to stand with arms extended while others load books onto his arms, one at a time, until he can hold no more. In the process, family members will share fears as books are added to the stack.


Fears are like the books you carry — each one adds weight and increases the burden. In contrast, when you give your fears to God, it's like removing a book from the stack — the load is lighter as your burdens are lifted. God does not want your fears to burden you. John 14:27 says, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." God loves you and is in control of your circumstances. Even when things do not work out the way you expect or hope, you do not have to worry or be afraid. You can be free from your fears because He will never leave you or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). He will carry the burden for you!


  • How does it make you feel to know God wants to give you peace and freedom from fear?
  • Is it ever difficult to trust God with your worries and fears? Why?
  • What fears do you need to give to Him?

1 Peter 5:7
