Nothing to Fear
Most of us have something that can bring fear in our lives if we allow it. Fear can create snares in our lives that will affect us from doing the right things, cause us to make rash decisions, and can control our lives if we don't stop it. This year alone has brought much fear in people's lives, including Christians. The devil is the one that will try to instill fear in our lives, and he will also cause us to be fearful of what others will think about us. He wants us to be afraid of what others will think about what God wants us to do so that we won't do it. However, we must not let fear take control of our lives. God has not given us the spirit of fear, and it says in 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." We can overcome fear because of who we have dwelling in us, which is Jesus Christ (1John 4:4). He will give us the strength to live right and to overcome fears. There is no room for fear in our lives if we have Jesus Christ because He can give us the peace, strength, and comfort we need, which is far better than living in fear. It's better to live in the peace of God than in the fear of this world.
The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.
Proverbs 29:25 (KJV)
