Fear



The question may be asked, why do we fear when we are children of God? We were bought with His blood through baptism in His name and filled by His spirit which lives within us; so, why do we fear? It is a fact that we are still humans with a fleshly nature and have become spiritual Thomas’.......doubtful; but hear the reason why we fear. Lack of totally trusting His word so it further leads to a lack of faith especially, when His timing is not in accordance with our expectations. We have to ground ourselves in His promises, meaning search deep in the scripture for His promises believe it and hold it true to our hearts. We are reminded that, “eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him” 1 Corinthians 2:9. We must further remember, “that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” 2 Peter 3:8. His timing is not ours but it is absolutely perfect!!! When we worry or become fearful it may cause anxiety and depression, but truly who wants to go down that road? No One!!! 3 John 2: 5 says “ beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth”. Good mental, physical and spiritual health is key because it keeps us whole. Therefore, do not fear the unknown but trust God, trust His very words that He honors above His name. Speak positive things and denounce negative thoughts and words because life and death is in the power of the tongue. The song writer says many things about tomorrow I don’t seem to understand, but I know who holds tomorrow and I know who holds my hand. Remember Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, so do not fear but have faith.
