What's your worse fear?

The world is full of fear. Let's look at a couple.

First of all are you born again? If so here are some things from God's word on fear and some things people fear


Neh 9:15 And gavest them bread from heaven for their hunger, and broughtest forth water for them out of the rock for their thirst, and promisedst them that they should go in to possess the land which Thou hadst sworn to give them.

Ps 34:10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that see the Lord shall not want any good thing.

Ps 37:25 I have been young, and now I am old: yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

Now you may say, oh that is fine for you but you have food.

Well let me tell you a little about my past.

When I was a small child, it was just my mom and I. She had health issues among other things. Many nights all we had to eat were stale crackers and cocktail onions. Was it what I would have liked to eat? No! But it was enough to eat that we survived.

Later there was a time when I was put on bed rest by the doctor awaiting the birth of our 4th child. While I was out of work during that time, my husband lost his job. Total strangers showed up at our door with bags and boxes of groceries. They all said the same thing. The Lord told them what to buy and where to bring it. I have never seen them again. So I do speak from experience. God is faithful.

Is your fear what man can do to you?

Pr 29:25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.

Mt 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Afraid of death?

2 Cor 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

And finally,

2 Tim 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear: but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Turn those fears over to the Lord, and leave them with Him. He is bigger then your greatest fear.
