Do not fear

Do not fear

That's a tall order in a world that seems hellbent on war and destruction.

Do not fear

That's a big ask when our planet is being consumed, 

our oceans polluted and our rainforests torn down

Do not fear

The vision that God commands

brings healing and restoration 

and demands our trust that the God of all creation

will yet restore the earth and all its creatures.

And so Creator God

May we not be paralysed by fear but propelled into action

to work alongside you in the healing of the earth

in the healing of the nations

in ushering in your kingdom of justice and your reign of peace.

May our confidence in your transforming power

enable us to live as co-creators with you

in the redemption of the world.

And enable us to realise your vision

Do not fear.

Joel 2: 21-22

21 Do not fear, O soil;
    be glad and rejoice,
    for the Lord has done great things!
22 Do not fear, you animals of the field,
    for the pastures of the wilderness are green;
the tree bears its fruit,
    the fig tree and vine give their full yield.
