Fear to me is becoming a very bad word and it can eat you up if you let it. Fear is a tool that the devil will and has used in his arsenal to pull you away from God. Satan tries to talk you into making snap decisions so that you won’t end up waiting and trusting in God’s answer to your prayers. The fear sets in and we start getting anxious making a decision that is usually not good for us. I have a habit of trusting God with all the little problems and situations in life but the big ones not so much. I give it to God through prayer only to take it back thinking that I can handle it. Falling flat on my face after taking it back I end up back on my knees apologizing and asking if He can correct the problem. Growing in Christ over the last five years my trust in Him has grown immensely and the fear dulls itself quite a bit. I still have problems but I know that my God, the creator of the entire universe is on my side, He, is bigger than my problems. Isaiah 43:1 But now, this is what the LORD says – he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel : “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
