Heavenly Father thank You for Your greatest gift of love - in sending the Lord Jesus to die for me on the cross and that in so doing He demonstrated His tremendous love for me. Lord I know that I am saved and secure in Christ but Lord so often my mind gives way to many different kinds of fear – fears within and fears without and sometime I find that fear seems to overwhelm me – and yet You have told in Your word that perfect love casts out fear.
Lord I know that Your love is perfect and my love is weak and it is when I am weak that the fears seem to flood my heart and overwhelm my soul. And yet Your word says that when I am weak then I am strong. Help me Lord to combat this fear and to rest my weary frightened soul at Your feet. Help me Lord to understand these comforting words and to know how to apply them in my life.
Teach me how to walk in spirit and truth and help me to take every fearful thought captive and hand it over to You in prayer and praise - the instance that it arises in my heart. Enable me in the power of Your Holy Spirit to allow Your strength to be made perfect in my weakness - knowing that the Holy Spirit of God Who indwells me is greater that all the combined worries, anxieties, fear and problems that I have, put together. Thank You that in Jesus I can find my strength and my deliverance. Thank You, in Jesus name I pray,
