I wrote about the fear of God recently and what this concept should mean to Christians. The quote I said was, “He wants us to understand we should run to Him when the enemy approaches us.” So, today, I would like all my readers to take a closer look at your environment. Do you observe fear in many people’s eyes? It’s prevalent, too, in Christians who are supposed to be a model of God’s being.
Satan and the antichrist have joined forces to create havoc in the world, so we are submissive and live in fear, just as Satan likes us to do. Hiding in our homes, we stripped ourselves of freedom, isolated from society. Spiritually disconnected congregations are not fearing God and His promise to protect us. Instead, we’ve converted to the dictionary meaning of “an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger.” This kind of fear is the opposite of faith!
I must ask, how much faith do you have in God’s power? Are you afraid to be in public or do you show anxiety walking outside your home? Are you scared to live by yourself? Do you fear losing a job, your home, or a loved one? Why live in fear?
When we truly know God’s love, our life is transformed, and fear is nonexistent. We must understand that mankind does not have control over any circumstances, for only the Lord develops our future. The love He instills in us is not weak. He does not want us to walk through life full of fear, worry, and anxiety.
The dictionary word fear begins with a thought, and where the mind goes, man will surely follow. For this reason, studying the Bible and meditating on its words is crucial for Christians. Fearing only God will give Him the respect He deserves, and in return, He will protect you from harm.
If God is on your side, what can man do to you? We must trust Him that all things will work together for His glory. You can’t fear God and fear the world at the same time. You are peaceful or fearful, but you can’t have both states of mind.
Today, stand against the evil forces at every corner and fear the God who keeps you whole, undivided, and safe. Have faith in His words! Be vigilante in prayer and prepare yourself for His second coming, not on the fears of this world.
Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil” Ecclesiastes 12:13–14.
