No fear

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Psalms 23:4 (NIV)

Fear can cripple us. It is an insidious cancer of the mind that eats away at our opportunities in life. Why is this? I am convinced that it is because we fear with our inner-child or some other traumatized part of ourselves. We have unresolved memories that need to be dwelt with by Christ. Now it is true that we are to have “child-like” faith, but nowhere are we taught to have child-like fear. This is an immature state-of-mine. All we see is the terror and fear that we had when we were more defenseless. Instead, when we come to our valley of the shadow of whatever it is we fear, we are to face our situations as mature adults looking through the eyes of Jesus. As an adult in Christ, we are not defenseless. We have all the power and love of Christ at our disposal. We can trust Him and step out in faith. Today, examine your fears. Ask Christ to come and comfort you like He did David. Ask Him to renew your mind and to heal that part of you that is in bondage. Remember, He is with you. He will comfort you.

Father, You know me. I come now and lay my fears at Your feet. Heal me, help me, I pray. In Jesus’ name.
