OVERCOME THE FEAR BY TRUSTING THE LORD


            And he did rescue us from mortal danger, and he will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in Him, and he will continue to rescue us (2 Corinthians 1:10) (NLT).
            While living in this world, many times we may have fear of few things. We may have fear of death, fear of the people who plot evil against us, fear of the situations that are attacking us all of sudden. Amongst all these fears, we can have a hope that we can be saved. How this is possible? This is possible only through trusting in God. When I have experienced these things in my personal life, a Word from my Bible made me to think of God. It was the point where I have started trusting in God. God says, so do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God (Isaiah 41:10). When we read this above verse with trusting in God, we need not to be worried of anything. Whatever we are going through now, it is the result of the fear we have about that. Job said, what I feared has come upon me (Job 3:25). Bible warns us not to be feared, but overcome the fear by trusting in God.
            We know that our God is watching over us all the times. Hagar said, “You are the God who sees me” (Genesis 16:13, Psalm 121:3-4). Yes, When we believe that God is watching over us we should not worry about the fear that is coming to us, we should not listen to what fear is speaking to us. What happens to the fear at the end is it will be punished (1 John 4:18). Many times we find the choice from God from the beginning. (Deuteronomy 28:1), If we do something we get other things, but it is up to us what we should do, whether to do what God is telling us or not. Likewise, this is a choice for us whether to trust God or have fear about the things. When God promised that whatever is happening in our life, they are for our good (Romans 8:28), He means it. He doesn't mean all things whatever happening is good; God means they all are working together for our good. When we see the functioning of Computer, we see just it is working, but if we see how it is manufactured, it is a collection of small chips. When one of the chips function is failed the computer will stop working, In the same way all the things are working together for our good, if any one of them we miss, the good result may get delayed.
            Sometimes the fears that we have will make us to trust in the Lord. Apostle Paul in his letter to Corinthians said that God has delivered them from troubles and they believe that He will do the same again. Bible says, Jesus Christ is same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). The hope that they have in God is that, the One who has saved them will save them again. Let this be our confidence that He will save us. Apostle Paul says, that they have put their hope in God, the savior of all men, and especially He is the savior of one who believes in Him (1 Timothy 4:10). Today let us all come to God and ask God for help to overcome the fears and replace the fear with Trust. When we ask God with faith it will be done for us.
            GOD BLESS YOU
