When You Fear
Dear Lord, I do tend to fear. Please forgive me when I do. I also am dismayed at times by the heavy burdens of life, so thank You for this reminder of Yours from Your Word, that I have no reason to fear or be dismayed.
I recognize that I am my own worst enemy. Help me to know that You are my God and You have promised to strengthen me and help me.
By Your right hand, the hand of sovereignty and strength, You uphold me, for which I am eternally thankful. I pray this to You, oh Great Father, through Your Son’s awesome name, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Second Corinthians 12:9-10 reminds me that “Your grace is sufficient for me, for your power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
In Jesus Christ’s great name I pray. Amen.
