By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
“By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised. Therefore from one man, and him as good as dead, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude—innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore.

- Hebrews 12:1-2
“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”
When fear tries to take hold, seek the Lord, meditate on these and other Scriptures, pray, and find peace in the one whose peace surpasses all understanding. Remember that “God has not given us a spirit of fear” (2 Timothy 1:7). He created us to be overcomers! He created us as warriors, not always of the sword, but of worship, prayer, love, and faith…
Therefore, let us walk in these. Let us “walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7), knowing that at the end of our journey, our reward is eternity with One who loves us beyond earthly reason; the One who views us as His pearl of great price!
