I WILL NOT FEAR WHAT OTHERS FEAR
I have found that fear can spread like a wildfire. It takes just one person to experience something and fear can penetrate entire communities. We can get to the point where we fear whatever is going around. Fear is contagious. Others instill their fears in us and we then instill our adopted fear in those around us.
What is the relevant fear in your sphere of influence? When everybody fears what every body else fears, we have a condition known as panic. This is not what God has for us! We need to get to that point where we do not fear what others may be fearing.
I WILL NOT FEAR WHAT MAY HAPPEN
This is another fear that many people battle with. It is basically the fear of the future. The future is one of the great unknowns in our lives. We begin by living in the future. Then, because the future is unknown we begin to fear it. As a result we don’t enjoy what we already have – the present!
Psalm 46:1-2 God is our refuge and strength, a tested help in times of trouble.And so we need not fear even if the world blows up and the mountains crumble into the sea.
Here is an example: many people have a fear of dying and in the process they don’t enjoy living. Let’s enjoy every moment we have and let’s not live in the future with all its unknowns.
