Fear is powerful; it can override logical thinking and produce irrational behavior. Thankfully, Christians don’t have to let fear of anything: people, situations, or even creepy crawly bugs ( Added thought because I don’t like bugs, particularly spiders), rule our actions.
We can declare, “Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in [God].” Psalm 56:3
Taking a stand against fear is consistent with the Bible’s instruction to “trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5
Our own understanding may lead us to overestimate and overreact the object of our fear and underestimate God’s power. When we are afraid, we can depend on God’s understanding and trust in His love for us that “cast out fear.” 1 John 4:18
Therefore, the next time fear creeps into your life, don’t panic. God can be trusted in the dark places of our lives, and even over every creepy little spider in my case.
Have a Beautiful Day, Tea Friends!
