The Fear-Free God

The Fear-Free God


“Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life….” Matthew 6:25a

Fear and anxiousness always plague us. We fear about finishing our to-do lists, what our bosses or co-workers consider us, or having sufficient cash to make it by the month. It generally will get to the purpose the place we don’t really feel proper if we’re not nervous about one thing.

I do know individuals who discover a part of their id in being worriers and who really outline themselves by it. However when Christians do that, it looks like a serious contradiction. Fear is one other phrase for concern. And in God’s Phrase, the message is evident: don’t worry (Matthew 6:25). Don’t concern (Isaiah 41:10).

In 2 Timothy 2:7, Paul writes that God didn’t give us a “spirit of concern.” So if concern shouldn’t be from God, then it may be defeated by the work of God’s Spirit in us and thru the renewing of our minds in Christ. Altering our fearful minds is difficult work, however the Apostle Paul challenges us to “work out our salvation” with the concern of God, not out of concern of the world round us (Philippians 2:12).

Our world is stuffed with scary issues. We’re all works in progress. However when somebody turns into a believer in Christ, that individual positive aspects the ability to beat concern. We’re kids of the One who created the world and every thing in it, and co-heirs with Christ who overcame the world (Romans 8:15-17; John 16:33).

Lord, I acknowledge that fear is an try to manage issues over which I’ve no management. Concern guidelines in my thoughts when the issues and other people round me appear greater and stronger than You. Forgive me and assist me change my pondering from concern to belief in You. Amen.

Thought: Write down a few of the belongings you fear about regularly. Ask God to indicate you the place this fear comes from. Then ask Him that can assist you take steps to beat the habits of fear and anxiousness.

It’s exhausting to belief somebody you don’t actually know. Take a while to get to know God in “The Spirit-Crammed Life.
