Acknowledge The Reserve

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~ Romans 8:37-39

I looked out my backdoor window the other day and saw a young deer cautiously approaching some food my father had thrown out for the wild animals that live right behind our backyard. See, our house is built right next to an animal reserve, so all of the wildlife is protected back there. Here’s the thing, though: the deer don’t know that. Especially not this young deer that we saw the other day. This is like us.

We don’t realize that we’re protected and in the hands of God, so nothing can remove us from His hands. And just like this deer, we allow Fear to dictate our lives. We miss out on the good food that God has for us because we’re afraid to step outside of our comfort zone. We’re afraid to step out in faith. We’re afraid to stand on the promises of God.

Yes, the enemy has power. Yes, the enemy can afflict. He can send spirits and men against us. He can even take our very life, but what he can’t do is stop us from fulfilling the will of God for our lives. He can’t stop us from being in the arms of God. There’s only so much the enemy can do to the Church of God.

Dear LORD, help me not to be overcome by Fear but instead help me to overcome Fear with my faith in Your love for me. Help me to stand firmly on Your love for Your love for me is unlike any other love, and I could not even come close to expressing it with human words. Teach me to trust in Your love that I might not miss out on the good things You have for me. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
