I trust in God, so why should I be afraid?
What can mere mortals do to me? Psalm 56:11
It’s Sunday night and a new week looms not too far off in the distance.
Are there things coming up this week about which you are uncertain?
Are there moments you’ll face maybe tomorrow or later in the week that you when you consider them cause you to worry?
Is there something on your calendar that makes you afraid?
Maybe you have a job interview or a client meeting.
Maybe you have a first date.
Maybe you are in your first week running your own business and it feels overwhelming.
Maybe you are contemplating counseling or a conversation that’s waited too long and that you need to have with your spouse.
Maybe there is doubt or worry or fear edging into your evening and trying to knock down your confidence or slow your progress or make you second guess what you’re planning to do tomorrow.
Whatever you may be facing this week, I hope you’ll take heart and heed these words today: I trust in God, so why should I be afraid?
As you prepare for this new week, take your eyes off the fear and focus on the Spirit that God gave you that brings confidence, and self-discipline.
As you prepare for this new week, remember who you are in Jesus and walk boldly into the moments that await you.
And as you boldly and confidently face each challenge, feel free to proclaim, I trust in God, so take that, fear.
