Dear beloved, Be strong! Do not be afraid. The Lord your God will direct your steps towards success and honor. Trust in Him!
Many times we fear over a lot of things in life. Whenever fear grips our heart, it is important to seek the Lord and get His grace to move forward. The Bible says, “The Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7).
Every time when I had to prepare for a sermon. I tremble with fear because thousands of people come to the prayer meetings with an expectation to hear from God. I set apart a time for prayer and sit in God’s presence for more than an hour crying to God for His blessing over the crowd. God hears my prayer and gently prompts me to pray for God’s will to take place in the meetings.
In the Bible, when Adam sinned, fear gripped his heart. But instead of drawing closer to God, in confession and repentance, Adam hid from the Lord and later blamed the circumstances for the sin he committed. I believe if only, Adam could have sought the forgiveness of God, surely God would have forgiven his sin and guided him in a different path.
My dear beloved! Whenever fear strikes you, cling on to the Lord. More than fearing what will happen to your reputation and status, fear to seek the will of the Lord and follow His ways. 1 John 2:17 says, “The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. When you the seek the Lord and His will for your life, God will lead you towards great achievements and take you to greater heights.
I seek you this day, with all my heart for all the blessings You have lavished upon my life. Master, take away every fear and anxiety that grips my life heart, quite often. Master, fill my life with Your peace and love. Guide my steps so that I will walk in obedience to You. I offer this prayer with thanksgiving in Jesus name.
