When You Are Afraid

A woman's hands, clasped in prayer, rest upon an open Bible

I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.—Psalm 34:4 (NIV)

Fear can be the basis of selfishness. When you feel threatened, do you turn inward and hold on tightly to what you have? Instead of recoiling against the world, turn to God. See the value in reaching out to others. Be brave and kind.

Today's Prayer:

Mighty God, no matter what I face, I know that nothing is impossible with You at my side.
