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.

Romans 2:4 Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?
Acts 18:24-26 Meanwhile, a Jew named Apollos, an eloquent speaker who knew the Scriptures well, had arrived in Ephesus from Alexandria in Egypt. He had been taught the way of the Lord, and he taught others about Jesus with an enthusiastic spirit and with accuracy. However, he knew only about John’s baptism. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him preaching boldly in the synagogue, they took him aside and explained the way of God even more accurately.
