If fear is going to attack me it generally happens late at night. In fact, it’s usually about the time I crawl into bed and I’m quiet and still. I think in the busyness of the day I can avoid it with tasks and conversations, but at some point it catches up with me.
I think many of us lay in bed at night just staring into the darkness spinning off worst case scenarios.
We fear the failure of trying something new.
We fear a relationship that seems to be unraveling.
We fear being stuck in the same career forever.
We fear our dreams may never come true.
We fear trusting God in that one area that scares us to death.
We have a lot of fears, but I think most of them splinter from one major fear that almost everyone consciously or subconsciously wrestles with.
It’s the fear that one day we’ll wake up to discover that we’re not worth loving.
That fear is the catalyst of so many other fears in our life.
Last week I was reminded of one of my favorite Scriptures which is…
Psalm 63: 3 Your unfailing love is better than life itself.”
Did you see that? His love is unfailing.
You can face your fear head-on today knowing that your God couldn’t love you any more or any less than he does in this very moment. And it’s that unfailing love that gives me the courage to be all God has called me to be.
