31 Days of Surrender: Fear

Fear….

Stealer of Joy.

Stealer of Peace.

Stealer of Sleep.

Fear.

Last night, as I closed my eyes to sleep, fear threatened to creep in. Fears of unknowns…health issues, job situations….as soon as I realized it for what it was-fear-I began to pray. As I asked God to take these fears and anxieties from me, peace fell over me, and I fell asleep.

Some fears are common…the fear of heights or spiders. These fears don’t impact our everyday existence. I love mountains, but I don’t go anywhere near the edge. My husband and I love hiking, but I admire the view from a distance, not from the edge of the mountain. The fear of heights keeps me from tiptoeing towards the edge.

Other fears can be paralyzing, keeping us from moving forward. The fear of failure. The fear of rejection. The fear of leaving all that is comfortable. The fear of the unknown.

God is greater than any fear.

The Lord is my light and salvation-so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? Psalm 27:1 NLT

Whatever you may fear, hand your fears over to God and allow His peace to wash over you.
