In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see. – Deuteronomy 28.67
Scary times are nothing new. When we waste our time with fear we wish for the morning or we wish for the night or we wish for the next day or the next week or the next year so that the scary bit is done and over with.
Fear makes us think irrationally. Fear makes us lose our focus. Fear will always defeat us. What we see will cause us to be afraid if you focus on them. We will say ‘oh I wish it was tonight, or oh, I wish it was tomorrow.’
And we end up wishing our lives away out of fear of facing a scary reality.
But we need not fear the day or the night because God’s perfect love always cast our fear. Fear is not a godly reaction because fear is not of God.
We don’t have to have a fear filled life. 2016 can be a fear free year. ‘Fear not, for I am with you’ God tells us.’ With God on our side how can we fear what man, or circumstances, can do to us? Don’t live the kind of life that wants to just rush through every scary time. Let’s see those times as times to be reminded that God is with us and see what He will do for us on those trials.
