Fear of the Unknown

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. –2 Timothy 1:7 ESV

Fear can create doubt, making you believe your circumstances will never change. Your focus becomes fixed on your situation, and you don’t turn to God.Don’t let fear cloud God’s truth—turn your eyes to Him. He will help you. Don’t hide from the situation—rather, get ready to fight whatever battle you have in front of you. Stay connected to Christ and yield to His Spirt. The Holy Spirit is inside you. While you may feel weak, He is strong and wants you to find hope, peace, and faith over your fears. God will give you everything you need. So don’t let fear paralyze you. God knows what is ahead and that you can handle it.Life can be a roller-coaster experience at times of emotional turmoil. However, God says to trust Him even when it doesn’t seem to make sense. God is always in control, and He cares for you. As Ephesians 3:20 (NLT) says, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”Rely on God who knows your tomorrows and has each one covered.

Father, when fears overwhelm me, help me remember You are holding my right hand.

Thank You, Lord, that even when my faith fails, You are always faithful.
