The Bible says we should fear two things.
Easy to say right? What I find, though, is that when I come along side of Him, He comes along side of me, and when that happens, fear takes a hike.
The opening and closing verses of Psalm 27 are powerful in this regard. The entire Psalm is one of reassurance in the time of trouble, but I will give the opening and closing and let you read the rest. David was a man that seemed to understand fear because of his life situation and he learned early on that a close relationship with the Lord can break that fear.
The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
Lord, I think my waiting is over. I know that You are with me and that I have nothing to fear.
Lord, I thank you for the gift of courage, for being with me in this present time, for helping me to break free from the bonds that that our common enemy puts upon me. He is a cagey adversary and he has wreaked havoc in my life, but there comes a time to say "no more" and to enlist the help of the brothers in this battle. Please Lord, help me in Your way to make them see what we must do. I think they know. Only a nudge may be necessary.
The things that You have done for me in my life will stand as witness to Your power. Please make it so Lord. I thank You and praise You for these things.
In Your Name I Pray!
