Fear begins to attack the moment you start to feel you are in this life alone.
The more you worry, fret, and look at your limited capabilities–the deeper you fall into anguish.
Believe today that the Lord God is a faithful redeemer. He uses the good, the bad, and the things you’d rather not mention to glorify His name.
There is nothing He can’t do.
So in the midst of whatever you are facing, renew the soundtrack playing in your mind. Thus far it’s been filled with what ifs, worst case scenarios, doubts, and visions of despair. Fill it with the truth found in God’s Word, the peace found in God’s presence, and the hope that comes from setting your eyes on Jesus.
He is forever faithful and He will surely redeem you.
“For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.”

“For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”
Colossians 1:13-14 NIV
“For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.”
1 Peter 1:18-21 NIV
