Johnny walked hesitantly to the door and slowly opened it. He peeked inside, saw it was dark, and started to leave when all at once an idea came, and he said: "Jesus, if you're in there, would you hand me that can of tomato soup?"
God does not resolve our fear by changing our circumstances (getting the tomato soup for us). Johnny's mom had it right. God resolves fear by going with us.
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. ~ Isaiah 41:10
We can overcome fear because:
* God is with us.
* God is our God.
* God will strengthen us.
* God will help us.
* God will uphold us.
If God is for us, who can be against us? ~ Romans 8:31
Now, let's walk confidently into this week and go get the tomato soup!
Trusting in Him...
