Have No Fear
Jesus said to them, "Arise, and do not be afraid." And, when they looked up, they SAW JESUS ONLY." Matthew 17: 7-8
When our focus is on Jesus, when He so fills our vision that we see ONLY Him, there can be no fear. For "He is our Peace".
Knowing that the love He has for you, His child, is a perfect love, you can lean into Him to support you and He will raise you up. Let Him be the still, unchanging Center of your life and so fill your thoughts that anything else that comes into view is just a mere distraction. Fear of the present, fear of the future, fear of what you know, fear of the unknown: none of these fears can abide where He Himself abides. And, He abides within your very being. "If anyone loves Me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him." --Christ Jesus, John 14:23 And, again, He promises that ".... If anyone hears My Voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and He with Me." Revelation 3:20.
