Fear affects everyone. Fear holds us back, paralyzes us, and keeps us quiet when we should speak up. It can cause us to react in ways that we normally wouldn’t behave. The problem is we fear the wrong things. Our fear of the Lord God is too small and as a result we fear man and the circumstances of the world far too much. In God’s presence we realign our fear, decreasing our fear of man and increasing our fear of God. Bowing before the one who holds all things in His hands brings powerful peace into our lives! What causes you to fear? If you trust in Christ as Lord and Savior, His Spirit will take up residence in your heart. And His unconditional love will soothe your soul.
“The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear.” Ps 27:1
Which do you fear more, God or man?
