We have a tendency of fearing man over God. A lot! And that should not be. But why? It’s because we can see man, we can hear man. The natural man believe first, what he can see. But we take so much more time, sometimes a lifetime, to believe and trust God. Knowing we have All Mighty God on our side, we shouldn’t fear man, and what he thinks, man can do to us.
When we accept God as our personal Lord and saviour , and we trust Him for everything, fear becomes less and less a part of who we are. I’m not saying we will never fear, but fear will no longer be a major factor in our life. Neither will the fear of man.
God gave us everything we need to overcome fear. He has equipped us. When you feel fear, remember it’s not of God because he didn’t give us the spirit of fear. Fear is from Satan.
Psalm 118:6 (KJV) – the Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
Hebrews 13:6 (KJV) – so that we may boldly say, the Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
II Timothy 1:7 ( KJV) – for God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
