We are always searching for an answer to give us a feeling of security in a chaotic and transitory world. We unwittingly seek moment after moment to be safe from any danger that might come our way. We’re looking for freedom from fear in every realm of our life. It includes losing our jobs, the loss of relationships, and the deaths of those we love. Also, there is the eternal fear of being separated and cut off from God.
The grasping for security in an ever-changing world guarantees continual anxiety concerning our lives. However, when we surrender our wills and lives over to the care of Christ, an indescribable peace comforts our souls. When we give up our independence, a friendship with God ensues, and the perfect love of God casts out and overcomes our fear. (Do Not Be Afraid)
The risen Christ reassures us there is no longer any need to live in fear because the Holy Spirit is living with us every moment of our lives.
