" I sought the Lord, and he answered me; freed me from all my fears. "

Psalm 34:4 

When he made this Psalm, David was going through tribulations and persecutions. Faced with a fearful scenario, David sought the Lord and received deliverance at the hands of Abimelech. Facing fear is part of learning in the Christian life. There will be times when fear can prevent you from fulfilling the will of God, and at these times we must do as David did: seek the Lord! 

Fear can paralyze us in the face of challenges that demand faith and daring. We cannot settle for this situation. If you feel that you cannot move forward in faith, turn to God from whom all strength and power comes. God answers those who truly seek and frees them from the fears that prevent them from doing the Father's will.

Whoever seeks God does not go unanswered! 

- Don't be afraid to open your heart to God! Talk to Him about your fears and what ails you.

- Read the Bible. When we meditate on God's Word, we clarify our understanding and strengthen our faith.

- Seek the Holy Spirit. He is our helper and guides us through difficulties.

To Pray: Lord God, I want to ask forgiveness for my lack of faith. Forgive me for the times I was afraid to speak of Your love. I want to trust You more, so I put myself in your hands. Lord, free me from the bonds of fear and pour out your peace and joy! May my mouth feel pleasure in praising you anytime and anywhere! There is freedom where Your Spirit dwells, dwells in my heart, in the name of Jesus. Amen!
