Are you scared?
Scared to look outside?
Scared to live? To die?
Scared of what you’re seeing, hearing…scared of never seeing or hearing anything at all?
Are you scared?
Living is impossible for those who are scared… dying is unthinkable, unimaginable…
Are you scared of all the uncertainties in your mind, your heart?
What if your choices are wrong?
What if your actions are on display to some higher power?
What if there’s a truth you’ve never embraced?
What if you never hear of it?
And what if you hear it but either ignore or reject it?
Does that scare you?
Do you want to do more than you’re doing, love more than you’re loving, and risk more than you’re risking?
What if you fail at everything good, but succeed at everything bad?
What if…just what if you could be free of all your fears? Of being scared?
To those who’ve been scared, whether a little or a lot, the Eternal One, the Creator of all, Truth Himself declares:
“Though your troubles are bigger than life, and you feel there’s no reason to live but are afraid to die, you do not need to live this way any longer.
“Fear needn’t control your life because perfect love casts out fear…and I am Perfect Love.
“I am with you in your troubles, your heartaches, your times of doubting, your seasons of grief. I will bring you joy in sorrow, peace in chaos, hope in despair.
“I’m as close as you’ll allow me to be.
“I have faced all of your fears; everything that causes you to be scared I have overcome.
“I faced them all on Golgatha’s hill.
“I was wounded for your transgressions, your fears, your life.
“I did it all for you, so you could truly live, without fear or shame, forever…
“Scared? Call upon Me and watch Me deliver you from all your fears.”
“I sought the LORD, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” (Psalm 34:4 NKJV)
“For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.“ (Romans 10:13 NKJV)
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear…” (1 John 4:18 NKJV)
