Only Thing We Have To Fear Is Fear Itself

President Franklin D. Roosevelt made famous the phrase, " The Only Thing We Have To Fear Is Fear Itself."  This prophetic statement is never more true than in the life of the believer in Jesus The Christ.  What are you afraid of?  One of the most common fears is the fear of the unknown.   That fear that comes from not knowing how a certain situation in your life is going to play out.  That fear that comes from not knowing what's next in your life.  That fear that comes from not knowing who you can trust.  That fear that comes from doing something that you have never done before. Does any of this sound familiar?

Let me ask you a few questions.  If we are to trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not to our own understanding then why fear not knowing?  If a good man steps is ordered by the Lord then why fear what's next?  If God is not a man that he should lie or repent then why are we fearful about who we can trust?  If God is with us then why be fearful about something just because you never done it before? 

So what are you getting at Trell?  When we are fearful it indicates a lack of love for God!  You see perfect love casts out fear!  The more you become aware of God's love for you the less fearful you become about what life throws at you.

Scripture Reference: 1 John 4:18
