When Fear Strikes

Posted on May 4, 2012


By Gary Chester Morse (1945-2010)

We guys tend to try to hide our fears by putting on our game faces --our big false fronts of being 10' tall and bullet proof.

When hit with fear, I recommend making a few tight buds and family members aware of the problem so that they will pray for me.

I love it that God hears and responds to the prayers of Godly people (James 5:16). Just being assured of these prayers gives me more of a peace about the outcome of any new trial.

For your own life, never forget God is for you! He is both for you and with you - you who are his friends and adopted sons and daughters (Isaiah 41:10). Even when the wheels come off in your life, he is a safe place to hide (Psalm 46:1-3). He's always ready to strengthen and help us whenever we need him.

Although there is no way for most of us not to initially fear when something ominous looms over us, we don't need to allow it to pre-occupy us. We know our hearts are secure in the one who's still at the wheel of our lives (Psalm 112:7-8)
