Calm my fears

It’s hard to talk when I feel that you are near,
When all is quiet it’s the beauty that I hear,
This hidden place where I know that you calm my fears
I know that you’ve washed my tears

Whatever you are going through, whatever you are feeling, God is there for you.

God can calm your mind and soul and give you the strength to face your deepest fears.

Trust in God because He alone can calm your fears.

When someone promises never to leave you, it can be hard to believe that they really mean it, especially because we don’t know what lies ahead. However, we can rely on God to be with us forever.

No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live. For I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will not fail you or abandon you. ~ Joshua 1:5 (New living translation)

Yes, be bold and strong! Banish fear and doubt! For remember, the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. ~ Joshua 1:9 (Living bible)

At the start each day, it’s important thank God for another day, and ask Him to be with us throughout our day. No matter what we face each day, if we go into it in the knowledge that God is by our side, we can be confident that we can get through anything!

Psalm 138:3 (Living bible) ~ When I pray, you answer me and encourage me by giving me the strength I need.

God’s strength is perfect. He gives us encouragement when we can see only darkness. He gives us strength when we are weak. He gives us everything we need, even during our darkest of days.

I will be here when you feel like being quiet
When you need to speak your mind,
I will listen and
I will be here when the laughter turns to cryin’
Through the winning, losing and tryin’
We’ll be together ’cause I will be here

When you need help with a burst pipe in your house, you can a plumber.

When you feel ill and need medical help, you go to a doctor or a hospital.

When you’re car breaks down and you need help fixing it, you take your car to a garage.

How about when you’re going through some difficult times in your life, who do you call?

God alone can give us the strength we need to face each day, and face each trouble head on.

Yesterday in Perfect Timing I reminded you that God answers all our praise, in His time, because His timing is perfect.

Because God’s timing is perfect, it can seem as if He doesn’t answer our prayers just because He doesn’t answer our prayers when we expect or want Him to.

We must always remember that God knows us better than we know ourselves, and therefore He knows better than us what is best for us. So trust God, because is timing and His answers are always perfect.

As I was leaving a building the other day, I encountered someone carrying several bags about to try to enter. I obviously held the door open for them to save them having to try to juggle the things they were carrying so they could open the door themselves.

As I held the door, I commented to the person that they had timed it perfectly for me to help them, they thanked me and agreed.

This got me thinking about timing and how, simply by accident or luck, I had managed to time something perfectly. While my perfect timing was simply by accident or sheer luck, God’s timing is planned and is always perfect.

So no matter how long you feel you’ve been waiting for an answer to a request, from God, remember He hasn’t forgotten you, He’s simply still planning his perfect moment to help you.

People will come and go from our lives, particularly during the difficult times. But thankfully, God stays with us always, and loves us always.

Even when it feels as if God isn’t answering our questions or helping us through our difficulties, God is helping us by loving us throughout every day.

In a world where so many awful things happen all over the world on a daily basis, is it any wonder we don’t feel safe. But as Christians we have no need to fear:

We are in God’s presence always, so as long as we believe in Him we need not fear what lies ahead for us or our family and friends.

It may feel like the world doesn’t notice us, or even care about us at time, but God always does. And because God cares, He does something for us, He sends someone to us to help us through whatever situation we are currently facing.

So don’t ever think God doesn’t notice what we’re going through, because that couldn’t be further from the truth.
