For Kids

Fear is a terrifying thing and we can feel it in the bottom of our stomach, especially when things around us are dark and scary and we are alone. Most of the time this feeling in the bottom of our stomach comes when we are afraid for our lives. We feel scared or frightened because something can take away our life. Remember this:THE PROMISES OF GOD ARE BIGGER than anything that can harm us. That is why Jesus said not to be afraid of anything that can kill the body but instead fear him who has the power to cast your soul into hell. Dear friend ask God today to give you the kind of love that will cast out all fear. God is much bigger than any circumstances and it is only by fearing God (acknowledging God's greatness) and drawing closer to him that we will overcome fear.
