Hello and welcome to the No Fear Bible reading challenge week 1 summary!The participation and response to this challenge has been phenomenal and I’m so glad for all of you who have joined in. The encouragement and inspiration for week 1 is at an all-time high and I’m thrilled that more folks are reading God’s Word consistently and fervently. Let’s check out the passages from last week, ready?
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you.- Jesus The world has given me things I eventually discovered I didn’t want. Or need. Jesus promises us that he is not the same kind of giver as the world. His promises never turn up empty. He never fails to supply wisdom and strength. That thing you’re scared to death will happen again or *might* happen? He is with you. There is no need to be afraid. #nofearjournal Day 1 of this month’s No Fear Bible reading plan- join in!
He is with you. On another Monday when you have no idea what the week could hold, he is with you. On a Monday when perhaps you know what is unfolding and fear grips your heart, he is with you. He will give you the strength. He will help you. He will hold you up when it feels like all of life is shutting down. Have no fear; your God is always near. #biblereadingplan #biblereading #nofearjournal #nofear
1 John 4:13-21
What the world needs now? Love. The perfect love only God can give. The beautiful thing is that he allows us to be the delivery vessels. Don’t miss your divine love opportunities today, both giving and receiving. Because perfect love casts out fear! #nofear #nofearjournal #biblereading #biblereadingplan Day 3- join in anytime!
Choosing to trust God in the face of fear requires fortitude. But our God is worthy of our trust! Have a wonderful Wednesday believing it! #nofear #nofearjournal #biblereadingplan #biblereading
Just in case you’re like me and prone to forget: The battle is the Lord’s. Move on, Wednesday; God’s got this! #nofear #nofearjournal #biblereadingplan #biblereading
There is an enemy who longs to strangle you with fear, to squelch your flame of faith, to keep you from all God has for you. You’ve met him and know him. But this enemy? He flees at the name of Jesus. The One who calls you by name is only a call away. Fear has no dominion over you because HIS perfect love is more powerful than any anxiety, worry or fear you may encounter. The One who redeemed you didn’t shed his precious blood for you, only to lose you. Oh no. Jesus conquered death itself with his perfect love; even your worst fear is no match for his love! #nofear #nofearjournal #biblereading #biblereadingplan
You have the protection of angels when your heart is reverent toward your God. That is how much he loves you! He answers. He delivers. He hears. He saves. There is no need to fear; your God is near!! #nofear #nofearjournal #biblereading #biblereadingplan Day 6
Not only is he with you- the Lord goes BEFORE you. Those uncharted waters ahead? No need to fear. No matter what lies ahead, your God already knows about it. He has laid out the order of your steps and when you walk with him? He is all you need. Soak up some time with God On this super Saturday! #nofear #nofearjournal #biblereading #biblereadingplan Day 7
Have a wonderful week as we continue with this month’s Bible reading plan!! My prayer is that the promises of God’s continual presence in your life is becoming more real with each reading.
By his grace,
