There are so many reasons to live in fear today.
You don’t have to go far to find fear. It’s all around us.
It’s on television, radio, the newspaper, Facebook feeds, WhatsApp Group Threads and so much more.
So what must we do when we come face to face with fear?
For the answer let’s get into the Word Of God.
In the second book of Chronicles chapter twenty, King Jehoshaphat was given some bad news.
A huge army was about to attack him. Let’s read what happened next,
“Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat saying, There cometh a great multitude
against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and behold, they be in Hazazon-tamar,
which is Engedi.
And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout
2 Chronicles 20:2, 3
When the king heard the news he feared. He didn’t try to hide it or ignore it.
But instead of allowing fear to overwhelm and paralyze him he set himself to
seek the Lord for help against the mighty army that came against him.
And when he sought the Lord for help, the Lord fought for him and destroyed
the army that came against him.
So like Jehoshaphat, seek the Lord for help when you are face to face with fear.
He will help you always.
He will hear your prayer as you cry out to Him.
Put your trust in Him in times of fear.
Bless you friends
