It has helped me so much. Thank you Lord for using Peter and Victoria Jones to bless so many!
Read these verses… And hold tight to them. Hold them close to your heart!
See, the Lord your God has given you the land. Go up and take possession of it as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, told you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
Joshua said to them, “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous. This is what the Lord will do to all the enemies you are going to fight.”
In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me ?
Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.”
Do not be afraid of the king of Babylon, whom you now fear. Do not be afraid of him, declares the Lord, for I am with you and will save you and deliver you from his hands.
Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them.
“so now I have determined to do good again to Jerusalem and Judah. Do not be afraid.”
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.”
When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last.”
Fear robs us of life, and stops us stepping into our destiny. Take a moment to answer this big question…
If I were 10 times bolder, what would my life look like ?
The difference between what our lives look like and what they would look like without fear is the measure of life that fear is robbing us off. Take some time to pray on your own for boldness and greater courage to live without fear.
