"The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?"
Psalm 27:1
"The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by Him we cry, 'Abba, Father.' The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children."
Romans 8:15-16
I am very grateful that God has not given me a spirit of fear.
When I am abiding in Him I have a tremendous sense of well being and there is nothing of which I am afraid. His love drives away whatever objects of apprehension are looming around me.
It is when I am living my life without a conscious awareness of His presence that my thoughts run wild and darkness overtakes me with worry and anxiety.
Nothing can separate me from God’s love so when I am fearful, all I have to do is redirect my thoughts on the Lord and I start thinking clearly again.
I thank God every day for His presence that gives me peace.
