When I talk about fear I am not talking about the good kind that causes us to fight when attacked or run when ambushed. I am talking about the kind that causes us to have issues, or make rash decisions. Have you ever suffered from fear? The kind that gives you anxiety and makes you feel panic?
I have felt it about a lot of things. I’ll be real honest and say I have felt fear about animals, spiders, the dark, men and really just a number of things at different times in my life. It’s not fun and it can be paralyzing.
The good news is that we have the authority to approach the throne of grace with boldness. We can ask for whatever it is we need in that moment even if it’s courage.
Hebrews 4:16 (NIV)
Let us approach therefore with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and find grace for seasonable help.
We don’t have to be overtaken with fear because God is with us. This is Immanuel which actually means “God with us”.
Psalms 46:1 (NIV)
God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
May you be blessed and encouraged.
