It’s easy to say ‘don’t be afraid’ and an entirely different thing not to be afraid, isn’t it? We trust in our unseen Father and in the grace that he extends to us. We’re challenged when something that can be seen and touched offers an alternative confidence. Which path will we follow; the one that leads to Cross or the path of our own making?
God knows our mind, he knows when we’re considering the alternative. Despite our outward appearances, where we try to make the world believe we have not doubts, God knows our heart. Can we embed it in our hearts such that we can walk fearlessly into the darkness that surrounds the Cross?
But the Lord has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge. (Psalm 94:22)
We can process that statement, even repeat it to others but can we get rid of our doubt? Confidence replaces doubt as we grow closer in our relationship with God. The more time we spend with Him, the more we hide His word in our hearts, the more we see His truths in action, the more we will know that,
"For the Lord will not reject his people; he will never forsake his inheritance. (v 14)
We will walk toward the Cross He ordains for us without fear..
When I said, “My foot is slipping, your love, O Lord, supported me.
When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul. (vv 18-19)
Grace and peace to you.
