And the angel said unto her, ‘Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. …’ Luke 1:30
Today you are invited to consider what you fear. Tell God, in detail what you are afraid of and why. Whether it is a small issue or a life-changing one, substitute your name in the place of Mary’s and listen to God as He whispers Gabriel’s words to you. ‘Fear not … (your name).’ Let the words soak into your mind, heart and soul. Fear not. How does hearing God say these two little words to you help you? How does it change the way you think about your fear? Listen again. Watch your fear melt as you hear God whisper your name – fear not.
May God bless you with such an awareness of His love for you and His presence with you that your fear melts away.
