Living Fearlessly (3)

Living Fearlessly (3)

“I will uphold you with my…right hand.”                             Isa 41:10 NIV

When you know that what you’re doing is in sync with God’s will, you can be confident He will provide what you need and fight for you. God told His people, “When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you” (Dt 20:1 NIV). Then God added something else: “Is any man afraid or fainthearted? Let him go home so that his brothers will not become disheartened too” (Dt 20:8 NIV). God knows that when you allow fear to rule your heart, it’s fatal, not only for you, but to those around you. Playwright David Mamet wrote: “On June 5th, 1944, thousands of American paratroopers jumped into Normandy. Four men refused to jump. Can anyone imagine the rest of these men’s lives? What prodigies of self-excuse, rationale, or repression they must have had to employ. Their lives, in effect, ended the day they refused to leave that plane…We all die in the end, but there’s no reason to die in the middle.” You don’t overcome fear overnight. But gradually, day by day, you can get it by the scruff of the neck and bring it under control. “The people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits” (Da 11:32 NKJV). The word “know” means “to be in relationship with, or to be intimate with.” Want to overcome your fears? Spend time in God’s Word. Prioritize your prayer life. Get to know God better.
