Why do we fear? What causes us to be paralyzed with dread?
“Nothing will enter your life that God does not either decree or allow. And nothing will ever enter your life that, if you are willing to trust in him, he cannot work out for your good.”
- Chip Ingram
1 John 4:18 NKJV
There is no fear* in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment.
- Fear – phobos (Greek), in classical Greek the word signified flight. Later it came to denote that which causes flight; hence, fear, terror, dread. In the New Testament phobos denotes both the fear of terror and the fear of reverance toward God. The English word “phobia” transliterates the Greek word.
Trusting God in everything we have to face in daily life, declaring His word and releasing our faith, will enable us to face fear and overcome it.
God’s peace (annointing) enables us to overcome fear and to have faith in the midst of terror or anguish. Simple trust. That us all.
Stay blessed and in the peace of Christ the Lord.
