Nothing to Fear

Matthew 13:44 
44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.”

Have I paid everything to buy your field?  When I think hard about it I think, yes, I have.  But I bet deep inside there’s something I cling to.

Job, he says, “Naked came I from the womb.  Naked shall I return from where I came.  The Lord gives and the Lord takes away.  Blessed is the name of the Lord.”

To remember that the giving is good, but that the taking is also good, that’s a key to the kingdom!  If I believe that God loves me as much as I proclaim, then everything is good.  Everything is holy.

When the car needs fixing and it's not in the budget.that’s a good thing!  The Father shows himself to be the grand fixer of all things!  I am taken care of.  He says, “Fear not!”

I struggle with the little things; will I have enough to pay the mortgage, what if the washer brakes down, what if the horse gets sick?

 But I seem to have faith enough for the big ones; am I really saved, will God really keep me safe, does he really love me in spite of my faults?

  I will stand in the shadow of Christ's wings, close enough to hear his heartbeat, where there is nothing to fear.

What a good word, Judy~

I like this line, "I will stand in the shadow of Christ's wings, close enough to hear his heartbeat, where there is nothing to fear."

Standing near His heartbeat seems like the best place to be.

And, I pray He will provide for every single need that you have this week~

I like the context of "standing in the shadow of the Almighty" that the Psalms present. To be in someone's shadow, you have to be close. And that's the whole point we need to learn... it's not rule to follow, it's a person to love! thanks!

Fear not...we truly have nothing to fear when we are resting in our precious Heavenly Father. Beautiful post, Judy! Thank you for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. Have a lovely week!

I tell people I've got all the faith I need until I need it...then it's a scramble. Although, since Dave's death, all the faith I had in him has been transferred to Jesus and I'm holding strong.
