Are You Living In Fear? 

JUNE 07, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    The “Fear of the Lord” is such a misunderstood phrase. In its simplest form, to fear the Lord means to reverence or worship God. However, some people literally live in fear of God. I mean a literal, “I am afraid of Him” type fear. They go day to day believing God is up there in heaven just waiting and watching and as soon as they make a mistake… Whamo… they are in for it. I picture them sort of like the whack a mole game you see when you go to the county fair. You get a large mallet and are given just so much time to whack as many of these plastic moles in the head as they pop their heads out of one hole after another. Some people live believing if they make one mistake in life God is waiting up there in heaven with this Huge Holy Mallet ready to whack them in the head and possibly take away their salvation.

    What a terrible way to have to live. To live daily being afraid of someone who loves you so much. God never intended for us to live in a spirit of fear. We are to live in the power of God, with love, and a sound mind. Let this mind be in you…The Mind of Christ.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    Do not live with a frightened fear of God. Live in a reverence of who He is. Not afraid… but in Awe. In addition, remember this; this powerful awesome God…loves you personally, as a good father loves His children.
