Trust Him

JUNE 22ND, 2022      |  When was the last time you were afraid? Was it in anticipation of presenting a school project or maybe in the midst of a daredevil adventure? Think about that time and ask yourself, “How did I handle that moment of fear?” We know the Bible says to trust God and to not be afraid; but sometimes that admonition is much easier said than done. In the middle of our panic, and in the height of our fears, we tend to rely on ourselves instead of God. Yet, this practice is pointless because without God, we are capable of nothing. Fear may prevent us from allowing the Lord to take control over situations in our lives. That’s when we must remember that God is in full control at all times, even when we feel completely out of control. It is important to know that our God is all-knowing and all-powerful; and best of all, He loves us. If we love Him, we need to trust Him. The most important thing about love is trust. When we are afraid and everything feels out of control, we need to put our trust in the Lord because He loves us.

Trust Him

I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me? –Psalm 56:11 NIV

God, You are where I put my trust. Fill me with Your strength instead of my fear.

Thank the Lord for His constant love and protection.
