ANGLICAN DAILY FOUNTAIN FOR 28 JULY 2022 DEVOTIONAL

TOPIC: DO NOT FEAR: DRAW NEARER GOD

TEXT: Exodus 20: 18-26(NKJV)

God speaks in the way that best accomplishes His purpose at every point in time (1Kings 19:11-12). The manifestations of God on Mount Sinai caused the Israelites to cry out to Moses that he should speak to them as the representative of God. They did not want to hear God directly to avoid death (v.19). Moses simply told them to “fear not.” God did not want His people to be afraid of Him like a servant before his cruel Master.

He is a loving Father. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2Tim.1:7). God wants us to follow Him out of love not out of fear. To overcome fear, we must think more about God’s love (1John 4:18). One basic evidence of embracing the love of God is the desire to draw nearer Him every day. God Himself cherishes this relationship so much that He wants you to always approach Him.

There is no fear in love but perfect love casts out fear (1John 4:18). Fear is different from reverence and awe. The closer we are to Him the more we lose sight of the world and its destructive pleasures. Therefore, begin to express love and not fear in your relationship with God. Though He is awesome, powerful and terrible, God is ever loving and approachable. You can draw nearer Him every day.

PRAYER: Father Lord, give me the grace to overcome every form of fear in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
