In Luke 12, Jesus told His disciples not to be afraid when He taught them how God cared for them much more than for the sparrows (v.7). And after His resurrection, Jesus told the women who came to the tomb, “Do not be afraid” (Matt28:10).

Fear is a universal feeling. We have concerns about loved ones, our needs and the unknown future. How can we learn to have faith? The Lord has given us a foundation on which to build our confidence in Him: “He Himself said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’ So we may boldly say: ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear'” (Heb13:5-6)

The love of God frees us from the prison of fear.
