Today's Verse: Proverbs 29:25

Sunday, October 2, 2022

Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.
— Proverbs 29:25

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Fear is such a paralyzing emotion. It robs us vitality, decision making ability, and strength. Courage helps us step out of fear's paralysis and turn its nervous edge into power. But this kind of courage comes to us fully only when we know that all Satan and his allies can really have of us is our bodies. He cannot take our mind, our attitude, our faith, and most of all, he cannot take our relationship with God given to us through Jesus.

My Prayer...

O God my Savior and great Redeemer, thank you for triumphing through Jesus over all that I fear. You have not only given me a hero I can trust, but a hope by which I can live victoriously. In the name of my Conquering King, Jesus, the victorious Rider on the white horse, I thank you. Amen.
