"Fear nothing, then. You are worth more than a flock of sparrows." Luke 12:7
Is it possible? That we can live without fear and anxiety? That we don't have to worry about the future, our children, extrajudicial killings or global warming?!! I have to confess that I do have to deal with fears and anxieties and that's why I pray. Fears and anxieties prod me to seek out the God I know who can deal with ALL THINGS. We have an enemy who wants us to live thinking about evil forebodings that could happen. He wants to keep us trapped and paralyzed. Instead of thinking of the bad things that can happen, what should we do?
We should expect good things to happen in our life. We should expect miracles. After all, we have God walking with us every day, every second. He said "I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and courageous!" Dt. 31:6 He also said He answers prayer. In Romans 12:12, we are advised by Saint Paul to rejoice in hope, be patient and persevering in trials, and to be devoted to prayer.
Lord, may I not always focus on problems, but instead focus my eyes on You. May I be violent in casting away worry and anxiety and purposely expect You to bring goodness and love into my life every single day.
