Romans 8:38 (NLT)
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.

The apostle wants to reassure his readers nothing can separate a person from God’s love. He goes on to list powerful things like death, angels, demons and the power of hell. But included right in the middle of all his words he says, “Neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow.”

Fear and worry are powerful emotions. They can actually cripple a person to the point of not being able to function. Fear and worry produces both anxiety and depression, which cause a person to spiral even further downhill. Fear and worry holds people back and keeps them from moving forward. Fear and worry can even cause a person not to be truthful because they worry about and the consequences that might proceed. Fear is worry about something which has not happened or may not even happen. The presence of fear can change how someone even relates to others. We can become so focused on our worries and fear we forget God is with us. We forget God is there with us, watching over us and protecting us. God is just waiting for us to lay our fears out to Him so that He can comfort us and reassure us. God’s love for us is great and is stronger than any fear or worry. Place your trust in God and let Him handle the problems you are facing. Lord we pray your love will be abundant in our lives. Lord we ask you to calm our fears and worries and move us forward in life. Let us depend upon you God and give us peace to live comfortably in your grace and love.
