Quote for Day 2:
“Be not afraid of sudden fear,
neither of the desolation of the wicked,
when it cometh.”
– Proverbs 3:25 KJV
At a time when fear has been rearing its ugly head, trying to come at me from out of nowhere, but consume me with a continuing merciless grip, You remind me of this passage You taught me on how to deal with anxiety… my very real enemy.
While this cruel foe loves to torment me, and tries to make me feel sinful for experiencing fear, Your Holy Word reminds me fear is a human feeling, that I am very human, and that my Savior took on being human too.
Fear itself is very normal, and You are very aware of it. You gave us a bible full of verses that begin with Fear Not. To choose to Be Not Afraid is not pretending we are not human, it is choosing to trust You even though we know we are.
For anyone struggling with fear or anxiety, or are simply consumed by it, the Lord has many verses and bible heroes that have been there, including our Savior Jesus Christ when He agonized in the garden the night of His arrest.
Don’t be afraid of sudden fear. Just talk to God about it.
He knows and He cares. His Son has been there.
There are more scriptures you can read on fear in my old post My Fear of God.
