Dear Heavenly Father, You tell us so many times in Your Word to “Fear Not” and so often I find myself allowing my imagination to run wild, causing worry and anxiety to rise up in my heart, for fear of what is happening in the world today.
Lord, I know that You do not want us to allow fear to overtake us, but rather that we rest in Your love and allow Your peace to fill and flood our troubled hearts, and I know that Your Word tells us very plainly that You remain sovereign in our lives and also in the world situation too.
Thank You, that You are my refuge and strength, my rock and high tower. Thank You, that You have promised to give us Your perfect peace in our hearts, when we focus our minds on You. Help me I pray, to learn to look beyond the difficulties in life to You, and help me to claim the many precious promises that are Yes and Amen in Christ Jesus.
Thank You, that You have promised never to leave us nor forsake us, and thank You that You are an ever present help in time of trouble. And Lord, I pray that You would embolden my heart when my spirit is flagging, knowing that You have promised that Your strength is made perfect in our weakness. Praise Your holy name.
