Trust God to take away your fear!

2 Timothy 1:7
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
In some versions, it says 'cowardice' instead of fear, in others, it speaks of 'timidity'

Our King and Saviour, Jesus tells us in the gospel of John 14:27
27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Again, in the  Gospel of Matthew 6:34 Jesus tells us: Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
The apostle Peter encourages us too, he says in 1 Peter 5:6:7
6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
So brothers and sisters in Christ, let's us be joyful today and confident in Jesus-Christ, our rock and King, not letting our heart tremble by what we hear or see in the news for He loves us, we are his beloved children.  Amen.
