No Need to Fear

So the king asked me, “Why does your face look so sad when you are not ill? This can be nothing but sadness of heart.” I was very much afraid …. The king said to me, “What is it you want?” Then I prayed to the God of heaven.—Nehemiah 2:2,4 (NIV)

Nehemiah faced a frightening situation and “he prayed to the God of heaven.” As Corrie ten Boom said, “Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” The next time you face a fearful problem, pray.

God of Heaven, please give me the courage to face my fears.
