It has been said that there is a "Fear Not" in the Bible for every day of the year. God is with us each day to help us in every situation we face and to encourage us that there is no need to fear as He will help us.
We ask for His help for the family of a young lady from our Church who was tragically killed a car accident and whose husband was seriously injured. As we have just come from her funeral service and saw her greiving family, we know that they can "fear not" the future if they trust God to go with them.
On Tuesday we will be attending the funeral of a man who loved the Lord. He was my Sunday School teacher as a child. He taught my older brothers and both nephews, one of which was currently in his Sunday School class. He was a man who was straightforward and honest, who has advised us in a number of situations concerning FML and who stood by us in the minstry and personally when others turned their back. Such a gentleman who had an equally lovely wife who passed away a number of years ago. We pray that his family will "fear not" as they take comfort from the fact that he is with the Lord.
What have these deaths got to do with Feed My Lambs? Maybe not very much, except that they remind us of the suddeness of which life can be snatched away and the urgency of bringing the Gospel to the boys and girls. Pray that we will spend and be spent in our labours for the Lord and that we will go forward in God's will and "Fear not" what the future may bring, the trials we may face or the battles we may have to contend with. God is with us and we need "Fear not."
