There are lots of things in this life to be feared. We fear the unknown, we fear failure, we fear death, and we fear the people around us. It’s so easy to let your life be dominated by fear. It’s so easy to avoid and walk away from things simply because you’re afraid.
God doesn’t want us to be afraid. He doesn’t want us to live a life controlled and guided by fear. No, instead he shows us his greatness and then commands us to fear not. He doesn’t want us to fear because what is there to fear when God is with us. What is there to fear when we walk with the Lord?
We all fear. We all know the feeling. The true test of faith is when we fear, but we decide instead to put out trust in him and continue onward.
