That is a very easy answer..... GOD said it in The Bible, HIS Holy & Infallible Word. HE promised it. HE keeps HIS Word.
We all have self-doubts, fears and anxiety, especially when beginning a new job, entering a new school, joining a new congregation, or even making new friends and we can fear authority figures in the same way.
A state trooper once followed a man for five miles, all the way to his home. Then he drove in the yard behind the man! “What did I do?”, the man asked himself. Anxiety gripped him until the state trooper got out of his car and said, "Hi! I haven't seen you in ages!" Turns out the state trooper was an old friend from way back and just wanted to say hi and catch up. But the waiting period was rough, all five miles of it.
Dear FATHER, I am sorry that I have treated YOU like an earthly authority when in fact YOU have sought to be my friend. Thank YOU for accepting me even when I rejected YOU because of my fears. May I be released from fear in order to know YOU, to walk with YOU, to talk with YOU and to Hope in YOU Forever. I Pray to YOU LORD and ask these things in The Mighty, Powerful & Precious Name of JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth. Amen.
