There are people who claim they believe, know, and trust God, but they’re living with fears. I was one of them. Before I got married, I was afraid of being rejected if I approached an attractive lady so, I never approached women. I was perfectively comfortable living in fear. That’s unacceptable.

People are afraid to fly, afraid to go on cruises, afraid their spouse will leave them or cheat on them. That’s a lot of fear. Not only that, those same people want us to accept their fears and empathize with them. As true believers, we can’t do it.

God has told us numerous times in scripture to not be afraid and don’t fear. If God tells us not to be afraid, no matter how we feel about a situation, we should trust Him and not fear. How can we honestly say we trust God, but we’re afraid?

Living in fear won’t send us to hell, but it will drastically reduce the quality of life. Don’t accept, tolerate, or entertain fear in any area of your life.    

Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
