Focus on Jesus : I deal in hope

I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Devotion Walk By Faith NOT Fear

It is so much easier to follow that which we can see or hear or read. But as Christ followers, though there can be many Christian mentors, we need to remember they are all but pale, fallible copies of the real thing. Feeling alone can be scary. That’s when we need to center our focus not on ME, but on He who died for you and me.

Our focus first, last and always needs to be on our Savior, on testing all by His Word and prayer. If we’re afraid to stand up for our faith, we deny our Savior. With Him we do not need to be afraid for he doesn’t let us go.

Deuteronomy 31:6, 8 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD your God goes with you; he will not fail you, nor forsake you. …And the LORD goes before you; he will be with you, he will not fail you, neither forsake you: fear not, neither be dismayed.

We do not need to live in fear when we make Jesus the center of our lives. He is our comfort and refuge as we follow Him.
