We talk to ourselves a lot. Every day, all day most days. So, what we are saying to ourselves matters. Where we let our thoughts go matters. If not, cognizant, ruminating thoughts can leave us feeling gripped by fear. Whether our fears are very understandable or completely irrational, we are given a choice to begin replacing the fearful thoughts with truth. It doesn’t come easy and actually takes practice to notice and be intentional, but getting into a practice of this can help us guard our minds and our hearts against the evil one and shape our emotions in a positive and productive way each day.
What does the Lord say about fear? Read this as your replacement today. / / / / / “His huge outstretched arms protect you – under them, you’re perfectly safe; His arms fend off all harm. Fear nothing – not wild wolves in the night, not flying arrows in the day, not disease that prowls through the darkness, not disaster that erupts at high noon…He ordered his angels to guard you wherever you go.” (Psalm 4-6, 11) / / / / /
