Our world is constantly changing, and there are times that the changes are overwhelming and confusing. We can easily lose connection with the ones we love. This creates fear in ourselves and our relationships.
We can even begin to doubt God. This doubt comes from fear. When we encounter this fear, we need to breathe deeply to calm ourselves. We need to focus on God and his love. Allow the Holy Spirit to transcend every circumstance in our life.
As we connect with the love of God, we reconnect with loved ones. Fear and doubt go away. Our faith is strengthened, and we can face the world with confidence. We are empowered to fall all challenges, trusting the outcome to God.
Every day we experience new situations and challenges. Often these situations and challenges are stressful, and create fear. Our past blueprint of fear can cause us to expect an unpleasant outcome.
We need to consciously choose to let go of any fear-based blueprints. We need to breathe deeply, and ask God to take away what we fear. Ask God to replace fear and dread with expecting good. We know that even in difficult circumstances, God’s guidance will not fail. Our strength and energy during these times will come from God. We need to expect good in our life because that is what God wants for us.
“For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Do not fear, I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13
