My God Takes Away My Fears

Scripture: Genesis 46:3 “I am God, the God of your father,” he said. “Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for I will make you into a great nation there.

Observation: Most of my life I’ve been afraid. Afraid of what might happen, afraid something might not happen, afraid of living and afraid of dying. I was afraid to take chances and had little confidence in myself. Now most of my fears are gone and I still have very little confidence in myself, however I do have confidence in my God.

Application: I don’t need to build up my own self-esteem, what I need to do is draw closer to God and allow Him to guide my life. My fear came from knowing my own limitations and now my strength comes from knowing I could do all things through Jesus. The only fear I should have is a fear of the Lord and to humble myself each day to His desires.

Prayer: My Lord and my God. I know you didn’t give me a spirit of fear, but of love peace and a sound mind. May I not go anywhere without your presence and I ask for courage to face each day knowing you are with me.
