Fear is a powerful motivator!
FEAR can spur you to make a bad decision.
OR a healthy dose of fear can save your life in the event of an emergency.
When we have a relationship with God we have Him as our shield (Gen 15:1) and we don’t have to live with unhealthy Fear.
Sometimes God has to tell us not to fear before he tells us HIS plan for our life because it’s bigger than we can handle. In the story of Abraham God told him to not fear what was coming because what God had planned was really quite amazing. God had given him a promise of a child, but it seemed to be impossible because Abraham and his wife Sarah had grown too old. God was not late he was just busy making the impossible possible. God was able to make life come to a family that was just too old and it was too late in their life for a child to be born. God comes to our rescue in His timing, not ours. Trust Him even when it seems impossible in the natural. Trust Him when all the natural possible solutions are expired and there is no easy way out. Gen 26:24 says, And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham’s sake.
Trust Him when the plan is bigger than what you feel you can handle. Trust Him when it makes no sense to trust Him anymore. Trust JESUS when everyone else has given up on you and Him and His promises. Hold on and TRUST the miracle worker, the way maker. Trust Him who does the impossible. Trust the one who makes a way where there is NOT a way.
You can always Trust in the Lord!
Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heartProv. 3:5-6 Amp
And do not rely on your own insight or understanding.
In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him,
And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].
