Great Reflection From The Word Among Us

He had to become like his brothers in every way. (Hebrews 2:17) My children, do not be afraid. You don’t have to fear anything, for I am with you always. Not even death itself should hold you in fear. Remember who I am. Remember what I have done for you. And don’t be afraid. Remember, my children, that in the garden of Gethsemane I was so anxious that I sweat drops of blood. Yet I prayed, “Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; yet, not as I will, but as you will” (Matthew 26:39). I was put to the ultimate test and tempted to turn away from God’s plan for my life—a plan that included my agonizing death for your salvation. Yes, I was afraid, but I did not let my fear rule me. And because I continued to trust in my Father, not only was I set free from death, I am now able to free everyone who is bound by fear and anxiety. So do not worry. I have destroyed the power of death! My children, when you find yourself fearful and apprehensive, please stop and turn to me. Tak
