So tonight I found fear slowly creeping back into my mind.
I start thinking things like:
"Everyone else is sick; it's got to be our turn soon."
"It would be our luck that one of our kids would be sick on their birthday. (Luke's birthday is tomorrow)"
And on and on....
But here is what I do know.
1. The devil uses every little insecurity we have to get into our minds.
2. He uses all our past experiences against us.
3. We don't have to give into him!
So tonight I will not live in fear. I will sleep soundly, knowing that my children are safe and well. I will thank God for the health of my babies and my family. I will thank Him for my faith and my relationship with Him, because it's through knowing Him that I can tell the devil to go right back where he came from and break down someone who might actually break because I won't fall for his tricks any more. Because my God is greater.
My friends, I go to sleep soundly praying that you find peace from fear through the God who loves you.
We've got too many other important things to do than to worry about things that may or may not happen.
I am not afraid. I was born to do this.
May you find intentional peace tonight...
