I get afraid sometimes. Of what others might do. To me.
Part of that fear is remembering the things that have been done to me in the past. And it magnifies the fear. A big lurking shadow grows larger the longer I consider it.
And the fear, if I let it fester and grow, will slow me down to a full stop. It’s a trap, set by the enemy. When fear starts creeping in, I do my best to put all my focus and trust in God.
The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe. – Prov 29:25
It’s not about proving myself. To me, rather than prove I have strength to overcome, I’d rather prove God’s strength and power.
Hey, there can’t be a shadow without a Light (Psa 23:4), right?
Besides all that, there are these:
- The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? – Psa 118:6
- If God be for us, who can be against us? – Rom 8:31
- The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me. – Heb 13:6
The name of the Lord. A Strong Tower of Safety.
Fear? Don’t give in. It’s a trap. And – It’s Only a Shadow
