Hundreds of times throughout the Scriptures people are encouraged not to be afraid. Jesus often said, Do not be afraid. Angels are reported to say the same. (If I were approached by an angel, I would be a little shaky too!) At times in my life I have been fearless. You can probably guess about what age that was! But as I’ve gotten older I’ve learned bad things can happen to all of us. We have reason to be afraid; the world we live in is a mess. Yet Jesus says, Do not be afraid. Our comfort is in the knowledge he will never leave us alone. No matter what this life throws at us, he is right there at our side. Thank you, Lord!
