27/ 365 Fear Not - New Life Brings Hope

DAY 27
1 Sameul 4:20
And about the time of her death the women that stood by her said unto her, Fear not; for thou hast born a son. But she answered not, neither did she regard it.

I think this widow with the newborn son was rendered speechless.  She wasn't even studying not fearing.  Not on the horizon - nope!



Yup, stayed tuned because this does NOT sound fabulous, right? Like I know fabulous when I see it, and I am not seeing it....................

But the woman said - fear not - huh, what does she know? She is just the woman standing by her - whatever that means - standing there giving advice -
Why would    A new baby

                               A new responsibility

                               A new drain on her already shot emotions

                            be such a good tiding that she should throw caution to the wind?



Because NEW comes with



What God has given you that is
NEW
 is screaming to you
 
 
The new is from His hand and it is good!

AMEN

  1. Sometimes the new can be exciting, other times it can be terrifying. What a great reminder that no matter what we think we are walking into God is with us and He tells us we do not need to be afraid. We just have to trust him.

    1. We love to forget all those brave souls who went before us into terrifying situations trusting Him completely. He is worthy - FEAR NOT

  2. Fear of the unknown is one of my biggest bugaboos. I appreciate this reminder to trust the Lord that he knows what he's doing and the future is in his hands!

    1. I think we all struggle with it - but I do believe it separates the mice believers from the men believers... or woman!
