It breaks my heart to hear about all the U.S. Embassy attacks this week. A man said he planted bombs on the University of Texas campus too.
It's easy to take our eyes off God and let other people put fear in front of us. However, the Bible commands us not to fear more times than any other commandment!
The LORD is my light and my salvation-- whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-- of whom shall I be afraid?
The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
-2 Timothy 1:7
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
Each day writes a new chapter in our life. The choices we make today write just as much in the books as the choices the terrorists made this week. This is sin in this world that can affect us, but God is much bigger than anything any human can do to us. He is bigger than we give him credit for. He can solve our biggest problems and calm our insecurities.
Jesus said, "Don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough problems trouble of it’s own…" (That's in Matthew 6:33 if you want to read more)
