Hello – this is Keith Tyler, Worship Pastor at Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church with your inspirational thought of the day:

Let me ask you a question today. Whom or what do you fear? As you walk through your life on a daily basis, what grips you from your inner core and traps you from experiencing a life of freedom…a life that is free in Christ? Is it a relationship? A life-changing decision? Keeping a hidden secret?

The Old Testament has a word for you today. In 2 Kings chapter 6 – Prophet Elisha is being attacked by an army coming against Israel. His servant runs up to him worried about the horses and chariots and the oncoming attack, but Elisha responds, “There is nothing to worry about. Those who are for us are more than who are against us.” Elisha turned to his servant and prayed, “Lord, open their eyes to see what you see,” and when he did, he saw the mountains filled with God’s army.

I pray this same prayer for you today. Lord, open our eyes to see what you see. You are a God who is for us, not against us. Give us the strength and FAITH to stand in times of adversity and fear knowing you are with us.
