Let the comfort of my words do not let your heart be troubled, believe and trust in me fill your soul with peace in your innermost being. I have given the command, “Do not be afraid” as a constant reminder to be alert and diligent in guarding your heart against the world that thrives on fear and manipulation.
Fear has the destructive power to paralyze and overtake your life. I have told you not to worry or fantasize about your everyday life or any concern you can imagine. The struggle to trust me is a battle fought in your mind. Refuse to let the thoughts of fear and anxiety take root in your mind. There will always be something in this world enticing you to allow fear to dominate and control your feelings.
Learn how to focus your attention on me instead of the cares and fears of the world. I am everything you need. My presence is the source of hope and life. I am the one in whom you can trust as I have overcome the fear of death and the grave. Worries melt away in the awareness of my abiding and loving presence. In my presence, there is no need to fear.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. John 14:1 NIV
