Matthew 10:30-31, "Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father's care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows."
Have you ever been frozen with fear? Have you ever felt like you were missing out on life because you couldn’t get past the anxiety of a looming situation? All of us deal with fear. When you think about most of the fear in our world today, it's rooted in fear of the future - the unknown.
The Bible tells us that God wants us to live fearless lives, not fearful lives. The God of the universe who created heaven and earth, and who created you, loves you! He knows everything about you – even the number of hairs on your head. You have tremendous value to Him!
We have a choice: we can be fearless or fearful. Do you choose Jesus' love, or do you choose fear? You can continue to fall victim to fear, or you can choose Jesus and ask Him to be the foundation of your life. Once you do that, you can hold on to the fact that God has you in the palm of His hand, and His perfect love for you can take away all fear.
