Why am I afraid? – part 6
“The presence of fear does not mean you have no faith. Fear visits everyone. But make your fear a visitor and not a resident.” –Max Lucado
“Why Am I Afraid?”
- “I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
- “If I get close to someone they will hurt me.”
- “I feel so helpless.”
- “I have no hope.”
- “I might not succeed.”
- “I don’t like being by myself.”
Sometimes we don’t like to be alone, because it means we will have to deal with our loneliness. There is a difference... “alone” is defined as “having no one else present” while “loneliness” is “without companions.” Jesus has promised us that He will always be with us, no matter what.
Joshua 1:5 (NIV): “As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you or forsake you.”
The Point Is: You may be lonely, but you’re never alone.
Prayer: “Lord, I know that You’re with me, but I’m still feeling lonely today. So I’m asking You to fill the gaps in my life, and replace the loneliness with Your love and grace.”
