Higher Everyday TEXT: “After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward” (Genesis 15:1).
Fear is the biggest problem-of the largest group of people, especially youths. The fear of failure is common among youths. Others have the fear of rejection, ridicule, or being regarded as odd by their peers. Some have the fear of the future- they worry over their upkeep, probably because they are orphans or are abandoned by relatives. Even if you have a very poor background, you have nothing to fear, as long as, God is your father.
No matter how challenging your educational condition may be, you can succeed, with the giver of all things by your side. Put your confidence in the Almighty God and you won’t fail. Fear not because He can make you achieve great things for Him. Are you afraid to witness to Jesus in personal evangelism? Are you afraid to identify with Christ among unbelievers? With the backing of the Holy Spirit, you can do exploits for God’s kingdom. The same God who encouraged Abraham in our text of today will also help you.
CHALLENGE: Fear should not stop you from evangelizing.
PRAYER: O God, take away any fear from me.
FURTHER READING: Daniel 10:12.
