Don’t Let Fear Stop You (1)

Don’t Let Fear Stop You (1)

Ps 27:1 NAS     “Whom shall I fear?”

Life’s filled with fear-inducing situations: fear of sickness, unemployment, rejection, other people’s opinions. Left unchecked, fear will steal your inner peace. But as Chuck Swindoll reminds us: “David met fear head-on at his front door with two questions. ‘Whom shall I dread? Whom shall I fear?’ And he slammed the door in fear’s face by declaring, ‘My heart will not fear…I shall be confident’ (v. 3). Then he walked back into his house, reminding himself how to counteract fear’s attacks. Prayer: ‘I have asked from the Lord’ (v. 4). Vision: ‘I behold the beauty of the Lord’ (v. 4). God’s Word: ‘I meditate in His temple’ (v. 4). God’s protection: ‘In the day of trouble He will conceal me’ (v. 5). Worship: ‘I will sing’ (v. 6). Rest: ‘Wait for the Lord’ (vv. 13-14). Determination: ‘Let your heart take courage’ (v. 14). Courage isn’t limited to the battlefield…Its real tests are broader… deeper…quieter…like remaining faithful when nobody’s looking…enduring pain when the room is empty…standing alone when you’re misunderstood…It can be as simple as saying ‘No,’ as uneventful as facing a mountain of laundry, as unheralded as the inner struggle between right and wrong. God’s medal-of-honor-winners are made in secret… where most courageous acts occur…away from public acclaim.” When fear nips at your heels, God says, “Be strong and courageous!” (Jos 1:9 NAS). Dick Mills writes: “Every commandment…comes with the assurance that we can perform it. God doesn’t issue orders we’re not capable of fulfilling…It’s incongruous to say, ‘I’ve lots of courage but no strength,’ or, ‘I’m a powerhouse of energy but I’m afraid.’ Courage and strength were given to you by God. Courage motivates our will, and strength accompanies our effort.”
