The fact of the matter is that there is much to fear in life: North Korea possibly armed with nuclear weapons, the spike in terrorism, your children’s safety in school, the reality that you’ll probably be diagnosed with some form of cancer at some time in your life and the way so many bedrock institutions – churches, schools and governments – are incapable of leading in a world that seems to have far more problems than hope. But just because you have a great deal to fear in life doesn’t mean you have to live in fear. That’s because fear is a state of mind. It’s not reality. God’s absolute love is reality. And God not only wants you to experience it, God wants you to dwell in it every hour of every day. So choose God’s love instead of your fear. And do it right now. Because you can.
