Fear. Fear is the one emotion that tends to take over. To drown us. It seems like fear tends to make us feel one of two ways. One, it can make us feel motivated and push ourselves until we feel confident again. Or two, it can take over until we don't feel like we can function normally any longer and we simply feel like giving up.
I want you to know how safe and secure you are in My Presence. That is a fact, totally independent of your feelings. You are on your way to heaven; nothing can prevent you from reaching that destination. There you will see Me face to Face, and your Joy will be off the charts by any earthly standards. Even now, you are never separated from Me, though you must see Me through eyes of faith. I will walk with you till the end of time and onward into eternity.
Although My Presence is a guaranteed promise, that does not necessarily change your feelings. When you forget I am with you, you may experience loneliness or fear. It is through awareness of My Presence that Peace displaces negative feelings. Practice that discipline of walking consciously with Me through each day
“May 19th.” Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young, Thomas Nelson, 2016.
There are so many situations where fear can take over, but no matter the situation, His Presence can give us the strength to face the fear of tomorrow.
"Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you He will never let the righteous be shaken."
