When these thoughts come to mind, what should I do? I am reminded that God does not give us a spirit of fear! Instead He asks me to “take every captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ” (II Corinthians 10:5).
More than that, John tells us in 1 John 4:4, “greater is He that is in you than he who is in the world.” Because of Jesus’ death on the cross, we are victorious! God is greater than the world and greater than our hearts. He is the one certainty in uncertain times. No matter what circumstance tells us, He really is trustworthy and true.
Trusting Him with the lives of my children is a process, a day by day surrender of these sweet gifts He has given to me to take care of for a little while. But I am learning.
I love the context of the II Corinthians verse I shared earlier:
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.
I’m thankful today for a mighty and powerful God who casts out my fears and brings me peace.
