"Truth is the Antidote to Fear"
“Those who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s children. For the Spirit that God has given you does not make you slaves and cause you to be afraid; instead, the Spirit makes you God’s children, and by the Spirit’s power we cry out to God, ‘Father! My Father!’ God’s Spirit joins Himself to our spirits to declare that we are God’s children.”
Romans 8: 14 – 16 GNT
When I was young and was afraid, the person I always wanted to have around me was my dad. Like any young child I thought that he was all-powerful.
That’s exactly what God wants us to do when we’re afraid, hang around with Him. Paul says we are God’s children and if we’re God’s children, then God is our dad. When we’re anxious or afraid we can go to Him.
The antidote to fear is the truth that you are no longer a slave to sin but are now a child of God. Being a child of God changes everything, especially for eternity.
You’re part of God’s family and God takes care of His family. He has your back. Knowing that you’re a child of the creator of the universe changes everything.
Call out to Him. Don’t be afraid to ask Him for help.
Peace in the Lord,
