Daily D – Revelation 1:14-16
His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And his eyes were like flames of fire. His feet were like polished bronze refined in a furnace, and his voice thundered like mighty ocean waves. . . And his face was like the sun in all its brilliance. REVELATION 1:14-16 (NLT)
At the transfiguration along with Peter and James and again on the island of Patmos, Jesus tells John, “Don’t be afraid!”
When he showed himself to the disciples who were hiding behind a locked door, Jesus said, “Peace to you!” (Luke 24:36).
In the presence of Jesus we do not have to experience fear or worry.
I needed this reminder today. How about you?
One of my coworkers sent a text message a few minutes ago and let me know she is ill and will not be able to join me for the training we are supposed to lead today. With COVID ramping up instead of down, no doubt she has concerns about what she is experiencing.
Many of us are dealing with challenges that have taken us by surprise. Other adventures await us around the corner. How can we face this reality? Here’s your prescription:
* Take one “Don’t be afraid!” now and another as often as you need it.
* Take one “Peace to you!” when considerations turn toward worries.
* See Jesus for who he is and remember he will never leave you alone. In his presence you have all you will ever need.
I will trust Jesus for all that is going on and all that is coming.
Our Father, empower us to live fearlessly and faithfully. Empower us to face our challenges with peace in your eternal presence. Amen.

1 Kings 22:34 But someone drew his bow at random and hit the king of Israel between the sections of his armor. The king told his chariot driver, “Wheel around and get me out of the fighting. I’ve been wounded.”
1 Kings 21:25, 26 (There was never anyone like Ahab, who sold himself to do evil in the eyes of the Lord, urged on by Jezebel his wife. He behaved in the vilest manner by going after idols, like the Amorites the Lord drove out before Israel.)
Matthew 5:13-16 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
2 Chronicles 15:1, 2 The Spirit of God came on Azariah son of Oded. He went out to meet Asa and said to him, “Listen to me, Asa and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you when you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.”
