Re: Verse reading–1 Timothy 4 (day three)
“Everything God created is good.”
Jesus rested in the knowledge that his Father had created heaven and earth, and he walked in this world fearlessly because of what he knew.  From Jesus, Paul learned that same assurance: “Nothing can separate us…”  If fear dwells in us, we can’t extinguish it by changing jobs, changing friends, or changing circumstances, because fear is portable, and we take it with us everywhere we go.  The only remedy for fear is to learn peace from the same God who taught it to Paul.  We begin learning by praying with Paul: If God be for us, who can be against us?  Over time, just as it did with Paul, peace will vanquish fear in us.
