Unlike most of us, Jesus didn’t suffer from fear, doubt, anxiety and depression. In fact, He told us over and over, “Fear nothing!” I believe he was fearless for 4 reasons: 1) He had an intimate relationship with His Father, God, 2) He knew He was the Son of God, 3) Through prayer, He knew the will of God, 4) He was determined to do God’s will (not His own). Ironically, we too can have a close relationship with God. We can stay mindful that as believers, we are God’s sons (and daughters.) Finally, we can reach out to the Spirit of God as we make choices. Staying connected to our Father God through daily prayer and mindful obedience gives us the confidence to fear nothing because (like Jesus) we will know that all the armies of heaven support us!
