Fear is big business. Security systems to counseling agencies deal with a myriad of fears. Some are justified and need careful intervention. Some follow us like shadows because of rejection, insecurity, and health scares. We are a fearful people.
Today God sends us a Christmas card with news that we all need to hear. There is no reason to fear because God is in control. How do we know? We review His résumé. He created the world, brought down fortified walls, slayed giants, overturned nations, and led people through fire, famine, and floods. He made ways where nothing existed. He brought life where there was death. He made new out of old. Ask around you for new stories of the creative, protective, and compassionate acts of God.
His strength is so great He does not have to change circumstances around you for you to know His competent power. When He lives in you with total freedom, His power will bring you to your knees.
