“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.“ (Luke 2 :10)
The Lord reminds us of a special promise today. It is in Luke 2:10 “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.” God has good news for you today. Even now, you might be full of fear. Fear about the future, about what might happen next might torment you. Fears like “Will I get a life partner? Will I get a family life? Will I get a child? Will I get a job? Will I pass this exam? Will I be prosperous?” might be causing stress in your life. You might be full of fear because of your insufficiencies and be afraid of living your life but remember God’s Word when fears assail you. God says to you, “Do not be afraid”. You will always have hope in Jesus. That is the good news about Jesus.
Knowing Jesus you cannot be hopeless or fearful. Jesus is a living God. So we can always trust Him. Once there was a king who was very worried about many things and lying down depressed. The queen came in to see him and told him, “Do you know king? Jesus is dead.” The king got up with a jolt and said, “What is wrong with you? Jesus rose up from the dead. Jesus is living.” Then the queen said, “But if you knew that He is living you would certainly not be lying down worrying about your needs.” The king’s face brightened. He knew Jesus was living but he did not let the truth sink into his heart. He realised his mistake and became cheerful remembering that if Jesus is living He can surely take care of all his needs. Yes, my dear friend, Jesus is reigning and He is in control of everything. You don’t have to be bothered about anything.
God has a beautiful plan for you to have a beautiful future even before you were born. Isn’t that good news? We read in 1 Peter 1:8, “Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,” As you love Jesus without seeing Him and because you believe in Him, God will fill you with inexpressible joy and remove all your fears. Believe that God will give whatever you need and you will find hope in Jesus. Trust in Jesus and He will fill you joy that you cannot contain. Every fear and worry will flee from you. There is good news for you today. God will do everything for you. You have hope in this world. Cheer up!
Thank You for assuring me that You will bring me only good news. Lord, remove all the fears from my heart. Fill me with Your hope. Thank You for You have a bright future for me. Teach me what to do and how to be successful in life. Heal me and build my life. Prosper all that I do. You are my good news. Fill me with inexpressible joy of having You in my life. Thank You for You are living and You will control my circumstances.
In Your sweet Name I pray, Amen.
