Eyes on Him

Fear changes a person

Joy seeps away

Confidence seeps away

Courage seeps away

 

Fear of death

Fear of isolation

Fear of rejection

Fear of loss

Fear of poverty

Fear… all kinds of fear

 

Peter said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Then fear…

“This was with Jesus of Nazareth.” Then Peter again denied it with an oath. “I don’t know the man.” Then immediately the rooster crowed.

 

Perfect love, God’s love cast out fear

Knowing that I am loved

That God is watching over me

That He cares for me linde

This builds my confidence and assurance

He is good and He is VERY capable

 

To Job

“Were you there?

When I laid the foundation of the earth?

Do you know the ordinance of the heaven?

Can you establish their rule on earth?

Do you give the horse its strength?

Do you hunt the prey for the lioness and satisfy the hunger of the lions?

 

Matt 16:23

But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me satan! You are a hinderance to me. For you are not setting your mind on the things of God but on the things of man.”

Setting out minds on the things of God

On the eternal and not on the temporary things

Is how we overcome fear

Seeing God

Seeing His goodness

His heart to save mankind

God’s plan for my life

A good plan, not one to bring disaster but to bring me peace.

God is love

God loves me

I will not be afraid
