When we encounter Christ, often our first reaction is to be afraid. What Christ asks of us can be terrifying. When Peter, James, and John encountered God, they fell to their knees. But Christ tells us to stand and not be afraid. All we must do is listen and trust in God to do the rest. When you feel that tug at your heart or feel God calling you to do something, do not be scared. Stand, listen, and know that God will do great things in your life.
Let me feel your overwhelming presence, Lord. Lift me up and ease my fears. You are greater than all things. In your name, Amen.
