Isaiah 26:3-4 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
“When does the feeling of fear overtake you? When are worries most likely to get to you? When is it that you become the most afraid? I’m sure several of you had numerous answers for these questions. On the other hand, I would also imagine most of the answers given would fall into an area of insecurity or unbelief.
Most people do not experience fear standing on the sidewalk of their local town in broad daylight. However, if you lived in Los Angeles, California and an earthquake began to shake the ground you were standing on, well then you might begin to get a little worried. Or imagine that this same sidewalk was in a less than desirable part of town, at night, with no streetlights, and a place unfamiliar to you. You might find yourself a bit frightened. What changed? Was it the sidewalk? No. It was the situations you found yourself in, which were out of your control.
One of the nice things about trusting in God is that you can know, without a shadow of doubt, nothing is out of His control. He never takes a break from watching over you. If you will truly trust Him, He will be with you throughout all your fears. In fact, if we truly trust in Him, He will replace most of our fears with peace. His words become a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.
In Proverbs 3:5-6 it says: “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” That, my friend, is a well lit path.
Will you let God calm your fears?
