You are Fearless & Brave

Monday, October 23rd, 2017


You are fearless and brave. Even if you don’t feel that way right now, you have the ability to be fearless and brave in any circumstance. Why? Because Christ is with us, and we can hand our anxiety over to Him. He will take care of us and answer us and sovereignly reign over every situation.

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 NASB

The peace of God is a guard. It will guard our hearts and minds if we allow it to. The opposite of fear and anxiety is peace, and God is able to give us that peace that passes understanding. Ask God for it and wait in an open posture to Christ. He will give you that peace.

By the way, fear itself is not a sin. If a bear runs to you to attack you, God created your body to experience fear so that you get away from danger. Paul in the New Testament was “anxious for the churches,” and it wasn’t a sin because the reason he was concerned was because of his love for them and for their well-being and spiritual growth (2 Corinthians 11:28). But Paul took his anxiety to God so that He could receive peace—because God is in control of all things.


“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 do not have to be afraid because God is with us.

You do not have to fear what other people think of you either, since “fear of man brings a snare.” (Proverbs 29:25) Do whatever God is asking you to do. Step out in faith.


God is sovereign. He controls all situations to such a degree that He brings everything full circle, provides complete healing–and the strength of who you are is now at a much higher level that is worth it all.

“The wicked flee when no one is pursuing, But the righteous are bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1 NASB

You are fearless and brave!
