Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. – Psalm 23:4 (NLT)
Do you deal with fear? Maybe there’s a situation at school that seems scary. Perhaps something at home makes you feel uneasy and you’re not really sure what to do about it.
The truth is we all deal with fear. However, we don’t have to let fear rule our lives.
Fear Goes When You Know…
One of the best ways to defeat fear is knowledge. When you read verses like today’s Bible verse, you begin to see how much God loves you and wants to walk with you through the difficult seasons of life.
Knowing this helps you defeat fear because you realize that you’re not doing it alone. Yes, there are times when it feels overwhelming. Yes, there are scary situations that are very real. But you’re not alone in those. You’ve got a God who loves you, who’s for you and who will help you with what you need each step of the way.
So today, take a breath. Realize that God is there and He’s not going to let you fail. You are a winner in Him. You will get through what you’re going through. And with God’s help, you can go through it with confidence, free from fear because you know God won’t let you down!
