Fear A Weapon Used

Fear given to most strikes a place of uncertainty. A feeling of being lost.  A feeling that the solution is no where near. Not only does your mind play tricks on you when fear is in the picture, but your body actually goes through physical changes. Heart rate increases. Pupils dilate. Sweat forms. Adrenaline is pumped way up. This is FEAR. The enemy loves it. For some it shuts the brain down from logic. It prays on the unknown. The faithless. Fear does come in all of our lives sooner or later. It is how we chose to deal with it. To “fear him” (God) means to stand in awe of him. Psalm 33:8 “Let all the earth FEAR the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world STAND IN AWE OF HIM!”.  To fear the Lord is to stand in awe of his majesty, power, wisdom, justice and mercy, especially in Christ – in his life, death and resurrection – that is, to have an exalted view of God. This is what we should understand when those fiery darts come at us. Fear not for I am with you. Says the lord.We must stand in faith. We must not allow ourselves to get caught up in the web of deceit. God is here for us. We cannot conceive the big picture he has for us. We tend to worry along the way. The enemy would love us to lose our faith. We are stronger then that.
