Fearless Living = Godly Confidence

“…but he called out to them, “I am here! Don’t be afraid.” John 6:20 (NLT)

I remember a season of my life, I was scared to leave the boundaries of the small town where I was raised. As long as I was in town or one of the surrounding small towns I was fine. However if I ventured out of my safety zone, I would lay my head on Mama’s lap and cry until we reached our destination. My Mom was baffled the whole trip as to why I was so scared. As I look back, I think about how silly I was, but at the tender age of seven it was real.

How many times has God said, “I am here! Don’t be afraid.” But we are so paralyzed with fright we don’t hear Him. Fear is for real and can be debilitating for some. Fear is the opposite of love and is a successful scare tactic of the devil. The devil is so cunning that he can even invite fear into positive or happy occasions like a promotion or getting married.

Our relationship with Christ should be viewed as the “Daddy” we call on when situations and circumstances have us frightened. A weapon may form against us, but whatever weapon (health, finances, chaos, tragedy, etc.) the devil tries to use to terrify us with – God says, “… it will NOT prosper…” (Isa. 54:17).

Decree today the evil one has no authority or power to scare us! Choose to be and live unafraid because of Jesus. Declare I am never alone for the great I Am lives in me and loves me. So who or what shall I fear? Whenever fear tries to creep its way into our hearts and minds be listening for God’s still, small voice saying, “I am here! “Don’t be afraid.”

“Thank you Father, because of the confidence of who we are in Christ, we can live totally fearless!”

For His Glory
