Fear

Good Morning brothers and sisters. I pray this day finds you without worry and fear. We say there are two kinds of fear- healthy and unhealthy. A healthy fear, we would say, is to fear fire, guns, water. And an unhealthy fear it a fear that cripples us so that we stay right where we are, sickness, car crash. I say for the Christ follower there is no such distinction. God gave us 365 Fear nots, one for every day. The Christ follower is to NOT fear. We can have a respect for the things that can harm us but we are not to fear those things. And we are definitely not suppose to fear something so bad that it cripples us to not do something. If you are Christ follower, God will help you overcome any fear. He tells Joshua the same thing. We can hold on to that promise that God told Joshua as he feared going into battle. Joshua 1:9- "Have I not COMMANDED you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed for the Lord your God, IS with you wherever you go." So for the Christ follower we should not fear. But what about worry? God has the answer for that- Philippians 4:6-7- Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. What about Matthew 6:25- Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; not about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more that clothing? But what about what we hear on the news, social media, friends, family? God has an answer for that too. Matthew 24:6-14- And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled, for all these things must come to pass but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. See, as a Christ follower I have nothing to fear or worry about. God has all the answers to ease my soul. If anything frightens you or worries you, go to God. He will quiet your soul. He will give you peace that no human can understand. Seek God for all and you will be saved. Have a blessed day and rise up children of God, rise up!
