We Will Trust In The Lord Our God!  

Fear is a very powerful thing, often panic stimulating and torment agonizing for those gripped with it! Be it personal and internalized within you or shared as a group, family, or gathering of people.  On the other hand fear occasionally can be very stimulating bringing forth decisive decisions and actions for good or bad.  Either way, I don’t want fear to be guiding me, controlling me, nor influencing my decisions because I want the Spirit of the Lord to have that in my life.  I have been gripped a few times in my life by such fear, it wasn’t pleasant and eventually my excuses didn’t legitimize it and it sure did cause a lot of torment and mental and emotional struggle!

That is exactly why the Spirit of God wants to help us to trust the Lord with life and all that it can bring to us. Simply sharing with our Father our fears and asking for grace to trust in the midst of our weaknesses, brings the help of our loving faithful Father!   Friend such fear is only overcome by prayer, determination and sometimes an encouraging song.   Oh!  I forgot to mention being still long enough to hear and receive His strength and faith.  Ps 46:10   Do and get whatever you need to overcome your fear (s) that you might know the care and influence of the living God through real and effective faith! Just a couple of verses to review and study that might help.  Be assured perfect love can handle our fears and His love is perfect!

 

Ps 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life —  of whom shall I be afraid?    NIV

Isa 41:10  So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
NIV
