"Fear" London Blog #10

Many of us fear the unknown. There is just something about the unfamiliar that makes our hearts shy away. You may be a first time Olympian competing for the gold. You may be planning to enter into a covenant relationship when you say "I do". You may be about to enter parenthood for the first time. Or perhaps you are moving across the globe or starting a new job. From Olympic athletes with extraordinary talent to ordinary people with extraordinary faith, the fear of the unknown still grips each of our hearts. But God already knows the unknown we fear. He promises in his word that He "has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline" (2 Timothy 1:7). What are the fears you need to trust Him with today?
