Fear can be your foe or your friend. When you find yourself in the path of a frightening storm—whether figurative or literal—fear can be a paralyzing force spiraling you down into the depths of darkness . . . or a propelling motivator moving you to higher ground. As the storm approaches, fear can be like a deadbolt lock keeping your mind confined . . . or like a loud alarm warning you to move to safety.
What role does fear have in your life? Immobilizer or energizer . . . foe or friend? What you do in the face of fear determines/identifies its role in your life. Instead of being paralyzed by fear, allow your fear to move you to entrust your life to the Lord. Come to see the Lord as your only place of safety. He promises that He will not only be with you, but that He will also lead you through your fear.
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
