He gives us strength

I do NOT like spiders. They scare me. Badly. I bet we could take a “what scares you?” poll and everyone would be able to list at least one thing they find frightening.

Sometimes fear is a good thing–it keeps us from being unduly reckless or from entering a situation which common sense dictates as threatening. But other times fear keeps us from living life fully.

Whatever our fears, God offers comfort. He gives us strength to move forward when our trembling limbs resist progress. He doesn’t want us caught up in a net of fear. In our darkest, most difficult times, all we have to do is call His name…and we are not alone.
