December 13 – Daily Notes – Amanda

fear

Fear, to some degree, is something we all struggle with. Media, culture, and advertising thrive on this. If we fear, we feel out of control and tend to look to gain control through all kinds of options. But today’s Proverb reminds us that when we have faith, we have no need to fear. We can know that God has ultimate control and will take care of us and protect us fully.

Obadiah 1-21:

  • 1-9 – This portion of the prophecy declares that Edom will be humbled and brought low because of their pride.
  • 10-18 – The violence Edom has inflicted on Judah is remembered and God promises to return Judah to prominence and warns Edom not to get too cocky despite their temporary victory.

Revelation 4:1-11:

  • 5 – The number seven is used as a symbol of completion. The seven torches represent that the fullness of God was present.
  • 8-11 – This section shows that eternity will be filled with God’s praises.

Psalm 132:1-18:

  • 11-18 – This is God’s promise to keep David’s line in the throne forever. This is fulfilled with Jesus.

Proverbs 29:24-25:

  • 25 – Fear has no hold on us when we are grounded in our faith in Christ.
