With all the negative news in the media it is easy to get fearful about the future. It is so good to now the God is in control. He knows the future. He has already won the battle over sin and death. When we have given our lives to Him we become joint heirs with Christ - we can claim the victory too. We do not need to fear the future.
So, it all boils down to focus. What are you looking at? Are you looking at the darkness or the light? Are you looking at the enemy advancing, or are you looking to your Saviour?
I have been told that the Bible talks about fear 366 times. Joshua was told many times "Be strong and courageous." Jesus said, "Do not fear, for I am with you." And Psalms says, "The name of the Lord is a strong tower. The righteous run into it and are saved." So, dear friends, when you feel fear creeping up on you: check your focus - what are you looking at? Run to Jesus, and be strong and courageous.
