In her book, The Power of Being Thankful, Joyce Meyer provides inspirational daily gratitude devotionals. My husband and I enjoy reading one each night at bedtime, as a way to reflect and be thankful for the day and to focus on God for the day ahead.
Today I want to share with you her words about to Refuse to Live In Fear.
Have you ever been afraid and unsure how to act or what to do? Has fear limited you in your capabilities and achievements? Joyce tells us Christians that we should “not give in to the fear” we are facing. “Do it afraid.” “When fear attacks you, you need to go ahead and do whatever God is telling you to do anyway… That’s what it means to fear not.”
“Thank you, Father, that I don’t have to give in to a feeling of fear. With Your help, I can press forward and do what You have called me to do regardless of my feelings. Thank you, Father, that I can do it afraid.”
