All trust, no fear

Standard

Yesterday I was the beach playing with Brendon in the waves. When I heard a wave coming that I knew would be too strong for him and would knock him down, I held him tighter or lifted him up higher. He couldn’t do those things for himself, and he didn’t even see it coming because right now he doesn’t know fear. He only knows trust. He trusts me to keep him from danger. I realized this is how God loves us. He sees the big waves coming, and sometimes they do crash over us and that’s when He holds us tightly so we don’t drown. But then there are times when He lifts us up so we are above the circumstance. I want to learn to trust in God’s love and protection, so I have no fear, like my son trusts me. How great the Father’s Love for us!
Matthew 19:14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

Isaiah 41:10 Don’t panic. I’m with you.There’s no need to fear for I’m your God.I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you.I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.
1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
Lord, how I thank you for Your love and protection. Thank you for constantly showing me new ways to understand the depths of Your great love. I know I’ve only scratched the surface and I’m amazed! Thank you for loving me. I trust You! I love you! In Jesus’ name I pray! Amen!

  2. Love this, Jenna Lou! I especially like the verse you shared about no punishment. This is huge to me and something I’d like to get more fully. Love you!
