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.

Genesis 26:26-31 Meanwhile, Abimelek had come to him from Gerar, with Ahuzzath his personal adviser and Phicol the commander of his forces. 27 Isaac asked them, “Why have you come to me, since you were hostile to me and sent me away?”
28 They answered, “We saw clearly that the LORD was with you; so we said, ‘There ought to be a sworn agreement between us’—between us and you. Let us make a treaty with you 29 that you will do us no harm, just as we did not harm you but always treated you well and sent you away peacefully. And now you are blessed by the LORD.”
30 Isaac then made a feast for them, and they ate and drank. 31 Early the next morning the men swore an oath to each other. Then Isaac sent them on their way, and they went away peacefully.
