Fear. Anxiety. Worry. They’re not good feelings. I experience them often, and I’m still trying to master practical ways to handle them.
Yesterday I encountered several circumstances that caused me to worry. And I had to deal. Here were a few thoughts that helped me:
- Nothing can enter my life without it first going through God.
- My loving Father wants me to trust Him and to let go!
- I am not in control of the things that happen to me, and I need to stop trying to be.
- Remember to take deep breaths–physically and spiritually. I need to “breathe in” God’s grace, and “breathe out” His praise (from Your Grace Finds Me, by Matt Redman).
- “Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me, [He’s] never failed and [He] won’t start now” (from Oceans, by United)!
Thank God that we can trust His sovereignty and His good plans for us! When fear surrounds you…

Glory Only in the Lord
26 For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. 27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; 28 and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, 29 that no flesh should glory in His presence. 30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— 31 that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.”[c]
Our actions constantly reflect the insecurities and carnality that Adam and Eve unleashed in the Garden of Eden when they ate the forbidden fruit. But the good news is that God saw our plight and brought us a new Adam—Jesus Christ. The power of the resurrection breaks the chains that the first Adam placed upon us and gives us the ability to reflect a new life—the life that God had always intended for us from the beginning.
