Tell Fear to Skedaddle

I’m not entirely sure skedaddle is a real word. But I know fear is real. I know it lurks in the places where we start to think about trying something new, especially when it comes to spirituality.

You may be a Christian & feel afraid of taking a step of faith to follow him in an area he’s been challenging you about.
You might not be a Christian and be scared of going to church, exploring Jesus or even opening up that can of worms.
You mighty be struggling in your faith and fear that things will never change and doubt that God even cares for you.

Fear is legit. But it doesn’t have to control you. One of the basic ideas of prayer is that God can take what is in bad our hearts and replace it with with something good. Consider the scripture from today’s calendar:

“No fear exists where his love is. Rather, perfect love gets rid of fear, because fear involved punishment. The person who lives in fear doesn’t have perfect love.” 1 John 4:18

God can push the fear out of your heart and replace it with love. He can do that for friends who know him and friends that don’t know him.  Ask him to take the fear out of your heart and replace it with his perfect love.
Fearless happens with friends,
