21 Feb Fearless: Piece by Karina
This roaring Lion was a sketch I made from a picture/word I was given about fearlessness…
F E A R L E S S
As children of God we are called to be fearless. God wants us to be so in love with him that there is no room for fear in our hearts, and therefore so obedient to his calling that nothing holds us back. Imagine what God could do with us if we had no fear!
This is far easier said than done as human beings! But 1 John 4:18 says ‘There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear’. God is perfect love. So he can cast out all fear. He asks us to be honest with him in prayer, to lay it all down at his feet. He longs for us to seek and love him wholeheartedly and to give him everything we have. He will fill us with unexplainable peace.
This sketch of the roaring Lion was a picture I got given about fearlessness. Aslan was roaring and running through the wilderness. I was on his back, like Lucy in the book ‘Narnia’… enjoying the journey and enjoying simply being with Jesus! A picture of childlike faith. Just trusting in my father and saviour, journeying through life with him, with the fearless-ness, peace and strength that only he can give. It is a journey I am still on, but I long for this for my whole Coastline family too.
