Sudden change. Uncertain times. Uncharted territory. A great deal of our lives are lived in these abstract concepts. Often it can be difficult to know how to navigate these times without becoming overwhelmed. Yet, while walking through the uncertainties of life, we can be ANCHORED with confidence to the many promises of God’s Word. You’ve heard the Christmas story a thousand times, but have you ever noticed the promises given to us in the book of Luke? These are four of the promises we find: Do not be afraid. The Lord is with you. Nothing is impossible with God. Glory to God! Today’s promise, DO NOT BE AFRAID, is a timely word for us. Fear surrounds us: fear for our safety, fear of what tomorrow might hold, fear of economic or financial trouble, fear of health concerns, fear of the unknown. Every time the Lord’s messenger showed up in Luke, he began with the phrase, “Do not be afraid.” This promise is just as true in today’s situations as it was then. So, do not be afraid.
