The Walls We Build & What Jesus Wants Us To Do Instead

Do you face life with walls up?

These walls could include putting your guard up between you and other people to avoid getting hurt, or steering clear of new opportunities to ensure you don’t fail.

All of these little actions are done to shield ourselves from feeling pain, ending up disappointed, or letting others down. It seems like a pretty safe strategy to live with walls up until you realize that Jesus actually did the opposite.

Jesus didn’t face the world, or even death, consumed by fear. Instead, He faced it all head-on, knowing God the Father was on His side. So, why should we act any differently? Our efforts to protect ourselves seem so silly when we realize we are held by the God who created the entire universe.

You are protected, seen, and cherished. You don’t have to face this life alone. Take a deep breath and believe that today.

For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways” – Psalm 91:11
