No fear. God’s love conquers all.
“Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.” Proverbs 3:25-26
M46 Project Challenge: Remind your children of God’s love and protection. They have no need to be scared when they put their trust in God.
As I think of God’s love and protection, I think of 1 Corinthians 13. Often thought of as the “wedding scripture,” is it not the ultimate description of God’s love for us? Consider…if love refers to Him…then ‘if I speak in the tongues of men…have all faith…but have not love (God), I am nothing.’ So true. “Love (God) is patient and kind…does not rejoice at wrongdoing…rejoices with the truth…bears all things…” And yet, He awaits us and longs for us to turn to Him, abide in His love, accept Him, and put our faith, hope and trust in Him. And in doing so, what is there to fear, really?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for your protection for me and my family. I thank you that you have not given me, nor my family the spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. Help us to place our faith, hope, and trust in you, Father, always, and to find your reassurance and protection when confronted with fear. Help us to remember that your love endures without end (Chronicles 16:34) and that, as your children, we find protection in your welcoming embrace. Help us to always be bold and to share and exemplify your love to others at every opportunity so that they, too, may know the reassurance of your love and protection.
Thoughts: To demonstrate faith as a parent does not assure demonstration of love.
In Day 3, we’ll step into Proverbs 2:3-5. Until then…
