What a great picture this forms in your mind! When fear first comes, if we could immediately counter it with faith… what a difference that would make.
We all have fear knocking at our door in some form or another. Fear of sickness, fear of the future, fear of being alone are common fears. There is plenty to fear out there.
Our enemy knows all fear begins in the mind. He sets traps all day long for us. So many times I will catch myself dwelling on something and I don’t even know how I got to those thoughts.
I have learned to recognize them more quickly, and to reject them.
To quote the Word instead…
“No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give his angels charge over you.” – Psalm 91:10-11
What comfort it brings to dwell on the Word. Words of home and healing. Words of life and freedom. The Bible says, “fear hath torment, but perfect love casts out all fear.”
Our enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy, but Christ came that we might have life and have life more abundantly.
So when fear comes knocking… and you know it will… answer it with faith… faith in God and His Word.
