Learning to Not Give in to Fears

In review of 2 Corinthians 1:10 it says, “From such terrible dangers of death he saved us, and will save us; and we have placed our hope in him that he will save us again”

Bottom Line:
If you place your confidence in Him, God will provide the rescue you need.

What this means to me:
In my own life, God had rescued me from mortal danger in the past. I have no reason to doubt that he will rescue me again if it is in his will. And because of my own experience I place my confidence in him to rescue me when I need it.

What I have learned from personal experience is that God is watching over me. Therefore I do not need to listen to fears in my mind. Today’s verse in 2 Corinthians 1:10 says, “From such terrible dangers of death he saved us, and will save us; and we have placed our hope in him that he will save us again” (GNT).

God’s promise that no matter what happens to me, he will be working for my good, especially as I love and follow him. Scripture reminds me as a believer, that all things will be working together for my good; not that all things are good, but that they are working together for good.

Because of this, I can stop listening to my fears. There will be no difficulty, dilemma, defeat, or disaster in my life that God can’t ultimately get some good out of. Therefore there is no need to fear the future. If I give into my fears, then I am not trusting God.

Today, I will think through any of my existing fears that I might be holding onto. I will ask God to help me identify why I have fear in those areas. Then, I will ask him to help me substitute my fears with trust in him.
