Fear of Falling

Lean on Me. Fall into my arms, you will not be harmed. I am your fortress, your shield; I am the One who says you’re healed. Fall with abandon into My love, I will gently cradle you.

The fearful do not fall, but the faithful see it all. The faithful see My love cast out all fear, for they hear, and they trust. Fall, fall into the protection of My love. Fall, fall into My will, My best for you. Fall in faith knowing I will catch you, and bring you into purpose.

Have you ever found yourself doing what you always do, only to find that the familiar feels strangely new? This is where I find myself. My husband and I have put on training seminars for a long time now, and yet, our next one feels like a never-been-done-before experience to me.

If you find yourself in similar place, or other, I pray these words bring comfort and reassurance that your Father in heaven loves you, and He’s got this, [whatever your “this is”]. He is here for the big, the small, and all the things that don’t make sense. His love is with you to banish fear, and to bring you into what He has for you.

“…live content with what you have, for you always have God’s presence. For hasn’t he promised you, “I will never leave you alone, never! And I will not loosen my grip on your life!” Hebrews 13:5 (TPT).

Have you experienced His love shielding you from fear?

  1. Yes for sure. Even this morning as I thought about the problems of the summer, I looked at Bible Gateway and the verse of the day was a wonderful reminder of one of God’s promises in Isaiah 46-Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.

  2. Yes, I have had to rely on Him and not be fearful. Especially being away from my family. There is a lot of evil in the world. I have held this verse close in Proverbs 2:8, “He guards the paths of the just and protects those who are faithful to him.” Thanks for this encouragement Jacquie. 💛
