Scripture: Matthew 24:6-8, Psalm 46:1-3 &1 John 4:18

In these three short verses, Jesus covers everything in life and nature that could incite fear. We read of wars and rumors of war, nation rising against nation, kingdom against kingdom, famines and earthquakes, etc. Jesus was preparing His disciples and forewarning them about all these things happening. He firmly advises them to see that they are not troubled.

Fear is the enemy’s number one weapon. He uses it to paralyze people, to get them to cave in to things that are not even real. Here is a good way to think of Fear: False Evidence Appearing Real.

We have no reason to fear because of God’s great love for us. When we are grounded in His love, there is no fear.
