What a year 2020 has been!
We will each have unique memories and experiences from this year, but we can all agree that God has been faithful. He has been, He is and He always will be faithful. He is continually looking for ways to give us good gifts. The future will hold unexpected adventure because we trust in His faithfulness. It is thrilling to be part of the Kingdom for such a time as this!
Speaking of good gifts, I have just completed my latest devotional, Fear Not: 21 Days to Peace! I’m excited to share this practical tool for plumbing the depths of our hearts and driving out fear with the love of God. Today, the opportunities for spiritual, emotional and physical fear are plentiful. You can feel it in social media posts and hear it in the grocery store aisles. There is a temptation to wonder: Where is God in all this? Does He know what is happening? Beyond any shadow of doubt, He is here and He knows. “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’’ (Isaiah 41:10 NKJV)
Living a life free of fear begins in this verse, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” (I John 4:18 NKJV). With an understanding of God’s unconditional love, you can exalt the Word of God over any thoughts, fears, or imaginations assaulting you. God does not want you to live with fear. He is perfect love which “casts out” or displaces fear. Love and fear cannot live together, so fill your heart with Him. You can be free from fear today.
