Fear Not!

I woke up this morning with the usual "Monday morning anxiety" in my chest. Immediately I said to my self: FEAR NOT!

"Fear not" that was the angel of the Lord's message to Zechariah when the angel announced that Zechariah and his wife Elizabeth will conceive a child in their old age; (Luke 1:13)

"Fear not" that was the angel Gabriel's message to Mary when he announced that the Lord is with her she will conceive a child and will give birth to the Son of God who she will name Jesus. (Luke 1:30)

"Fear not" is the same message said over and over again in the Bible.

And so as I sit here with my computer, with the anxiety's ugly head keep on popping up in my chest - I react by pounding it with the powerful message which I learned yesterday when I attended the Women's Ministry Conference. Equipped with Kelly Apo's encouraging message from God's Words, this morning I am empowered to battle this anxiety - and everytime it peeks all I have to say is "Fear Not!, for the Lord my God is with me".

Is there anything bothering you today? FEAR NOT!
