A World of Fear
It is far too easy to be fearful these days. Whether it’s anxiety over life circumstances, internal turmoil, or the flood of news reports that haunt our days, fear is everywhere. Fear is also just a part of the human condition. It keeps us up at night and causes great anxiety. Young children go through phases where they can’t seem to escape it at night.
However, fear is not part of the Christian condition. As followers of Christ, we are not bound by fear. We are bound by Him – light, love, and truth. The best defense and offense we have against fear in our hearts and homes is the Word of God. It is with the sword of truth that the Spirit of God will fight our battle against fear.
How can we claim this weapon for our own in these times? How can we protect and equip our children against fear? By hiding God’s Word in our hearts and washing our children with it every single day.

Hide God’s Word – Print out the scripture cards and begin to memorize them yourself and perhaps with your children. Printing on card stock or laminating them makes them sturdier.

See God’s Word – Print out the scripture posters and post them somewhere where you and your children will see them often. For example, you could put the Do Not Fear poster on your mantle and hang the Sweet Sleep poster in your child’s room. Seeing these powerful verses on a regular basis embeds them in your hearts and minds!
Use God’s Word – In moments of fear or anxiety, cover yourself with these scriptures, reciting them in your head or aloud. Pray them over your children before bed or difficult situations. Recite the scriptures with them when they wake up at night. God’s Word is truly powerful!
