We often think of fear as an emotion or feeling. Scared, terrified, anxious, doubting, horrified, panicked. It is more than that; it is a statement of our faith. As darkness can be explained as the absence of light, so can fear be explained as the absence of faith.
Should you feel guilty if you fear? Most definitely not. Rather, you should see it as an alert to question how much you are placing your trust in God and seeking peace in Him.
Fear has a deceitful and persistent attribute that clings to our minds and can be difficult to shake off. You can’t just say, “Fear leave” and it be gone, never to return. You must replace it with a declaration of faith and a profession of God’s power being bigger than your fear.
We can walk in victory through any uncertainties. We can overcome our worst insecurities. We can be strengthened in weakness.
It’s a beautiful exchange: our chaos for His calm, our imbalance for His harmony, and our concern for His comfort.
It’s all because of His grace and His love to take care of what we can’t. Overcoming fear is admitting we can’t do it alone and accepting the guiding hand that is offered to us through Jesus Christ.
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You, all whose thoughts are fixed on You! Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.”
