Even as Sarah Obeyed Abraham, calling him Lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. 1 Peter 3:6

Shalom Friends, Annie here. In the above passage, we see that it is a blessing to be considered a daughter of Sarah. But there are two requirements: #1 doing well, #2 not being afraid.

We have ample opportunities to do both of these each day. All throughout the day we can “do well”. There are many opportunities to serve others. We have many opportunities to choose to be kind … or to respond in irritableness. There are many opportunities to be joyful or choose to be heavy-hearted. We can be thankful or ungrateful and not satisfied with what we have. We can speak words of encouragement and life or we can complain and bring discouragement. All throughout our day we are given opportunities to “do well”.

In the same way, all throughout our day we can overcome fear. I think one of the biggest problems with fear is how well it disguises or hides itself. Fear slinks behind wisdom and “common sense”. In some areas the Heavenly Father has asked us to walk by faith, like home-birthing or trusting Him for our healing, fear tries to hinder us by questioning the “wisdom” or “common sense” of our choice.
