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 Samuel 24:16, 17 When David finished saying these things to him, Saul replied, “Is that your voice, David my son?” Then Saul wept aloud and said to David, “You are more righteous than I, for you have done what is good to me though I have done what is evil to you.” (CSB)

1 Samuel 13:13, 14 Samuel said to Saul, “You have been foolish. You have not kept the command the LORD your God gave you. It was at this time that the LORD would have permanently established your reign over Israel, but now your reign will not endure. The LORD has found a man after his own heart, and the LORD has appointed him as ruler over his people, because you have not done what the LORD commanded.” (CSB)
