The greatest fear is fear of the unknown. I don’t know who said it, but it’s so true! Our minds can conjure up a number of scenarios at any given moment. Don’t believe me? Walk into a cave without a light! Walk into a doctors office for a report. Walk into hell without the blood of Jesus!
I felt the Lord distinctly say this morning that there are many people walking in fear today. I don’t know what YOUR scenario is, but I do know this; God is greater! Not only is He greater, but there is nothing hidden from Him, He knows it all! You can walk into that dark cave because Jesus is the light of the world, in Him there is no darkness. You can walk into that doctors office for your report knowing that Jesus Himself took all your sickness. You can know that ALL of your steps are ordered by the Lord and He’s excited for what’s in store for you.
His plans are good! His plans are good! His plans are good! Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,” says the Lord, “thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
That’s right! Read it again. God has good plans for YOU! You can find so much hope to replace the fear in you if you only read His promises to you. Go read Psalm 91 and insert your name to make it personal. We may not know what tomorrow holds, but we know who holds our tomorrow. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.”
Father, as I walk out what You’ve asked me to do, I purposely place one foot in front of the other. I won’t look too far ahead, because the light you place on my path only goes so far. I will focus on You and tune into Your voice. When the light stops, so will I. Until You show me which door to take, I will wait on You. I won’t cast away my confidence. My eyes remain steadfastly on You because You are my hope and I trust in You. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
