fear is a powerful thing. it's not a huge revelation, nor is it anything new to many of us.
we can allow it to control us,
to determine our path in life,
and even become a stronger voice than God.
and why do you or i allow this to happen?
it takes courage to fight fear head on. to take hope in the future and trust in God. and sometimes it is very hard to tap into that courage, to find it deep within ourselves. because sometimes it's buried so deep within us that we have forgotten how to use it.
but when we walk through those hard times, God is with us. isaiah 43:2 states, "when you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you."
i find comfort in that fact that God will be with me, that He'll be with you.
so whatever fear or fearful situation you are battling right now, take comfort knowing that God is there with you. He's told us..
"I will be with you"
so, are you with Him?
