Do you get frightened
sometimes? God says He does not want you to be afraid. He wants
you to trust Him in all things. The Bible says, if you start
to worry, quickly change your thoughts toward things you know
to be good, beautiful and true. Then always be sure to thank
Him for His loving care.
We do not need to
be afraid. There are many things in the world that can scare
us or make us feel helpless. God does not want us to feel that
way. He wants us to rest and know He is God and can take care
of us. There is nothing too big for God to handle. God does not
give us fear. He gives us peace and joy. When we are afraid,
He will bring a quiet resting to our souls. We should think about
How wonderful He is!
There is a storm coming in the clouds above the meadow. Joshua Jackrabbit is trusting God with the storm. He might get a little wet, but he is not worried. God will lead him to safety when the time comes. He really looks like he is enjoying the beautiful meadow God has given him to rest in. God has created many wonderful things for Joshua to see and think about. He gives thanks to God everyday.
Fear can keep us from enjoying all the blessings God has given to us. When our eyes are fixed on the beautiful things and blessings around us we will not be bothered with fear. When you become afraid, ask God to take fear away and replace it with His peace and joy.
