Stay Close to God

The things of the world often make us afraid. What kind of input are you receiving from the world? Is any of it causing fear in you? Do whatever you can to stay close to God. Fear disappears in the presence of the Lord. 

The more you get to know the Lord and understand who He is, the more you will reverence Him and fear His displeasure. This is called the fear to the Lord, and it makes you want to obey Him. It’s what draws you closer to God and increases your longing for more of Him. When you have the fear of the Lord, you fear what your life would be like without Him. 

God wants you to walk with Him and talk with Him and have the kind of relationship with Him where He shares Himself with you and tells you things you didn’t know before and wouldn’t know unless He revealed them to you. When you get close enough and quiet enough, He will whisper a secret to your heart and it will change your life. In that moment, any fear you have will be gone. Ask God to speak to you today. 

Dear Lord, show me where I allow fear to take root and help me to put a stop to it. Take away any fear of rejection and all fear of man from within me and replace it will the fear of the Lord. Lord, help me to grow in fear and reverence of You so that I may please you and escape the plans of evil for my life. Thank You that those who fear You will never lack any good thing. 

In Jesus name I pray 


There is no fear in love; but perfect love cast out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

1 John 4:18 

The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant.

Psalm 25:14
