Fear Not

Our lives are so wrapped up with conscious or unconscious fears that the Bible specifically addressed it on over a hundred occasions. However, we are so habituated with it that we often do not hear that soothing Voice of reminder, “Do not be afraid, do not fear” that comes to us. These words were spoken time and again through human history because it is a new way of being; it is the way of God. When the winds began to be stirred up, the disciples saw Jesus walking on the water towards them, fear overtook them, until they heard Him speak, “ It is I; do not be afraid.” He will never leave us, nor forsake us. Fear not!
