Devotionals Daily: A Year with Jesus

From Grace for the Moment®: Morning and Evening Edition by Max Lucado

No Fears at All

I am the LORD your God, who holds your right hand, and I tell you, “Don’t be afraid. I will help you.”–Isaiah 41:13

            Could you use some courage? Are you backing down more than you are standing up? Jesus scattered the butterflies out of the stomachs of his nervous disciples. . . .

We need to remember that the disciples were common men given a compelling task. Before they were the stained-glassed saints in the windows of cathedrals, they were somebody’s next-door neighbors trying to make a living and raise a family. They weren’t cut from theological cloth or raised on supernatural milk. But they were an ounce more devoted than they were afraid and, as a result, did some extraordinary things.

Earthly fears are no fears at all. Answer the big question of eternity, and the little questions of life fall into perspective.
