Fear

After a word race on the appropriate topic of fear with Matthew Lauser/Luke Alistar this morning, I decided to copy the less "emotionally vulnerable" part into a blog post. ;)

"Giants in your life. Pride, ambition, vanity, selfishness, idolatry. So many more obvious that we fight daily, yet there’s something about fear which makes it a very deadly giant to face. Fear is cold, grey oblivion that steals up on us, wrapping dark fingers of soft thick vapour over our eyes so that the glory of God is dimmed and appears, at times, to have vanished. Fear is the giant that turns our vision dark and our gazes fall to the earth to search for the light. Fear is what leads us away from God in the hardest circles of life and sends us cowering into a corner instead of facing the pain with our hands in God’s – with a smile.

Fear is the darkness; faith is the golden light. Light conquers darkness. Faith conquers fear. And to receive faith, we ask God. And search after Him. When you seek Him diligently, you will find Him – IF – you search for Him with all your heart. And He will give you faith. A shield against fear.

And to keep that faith, you need hope.

To keep faith and hope, you need love. And Love is God. Faith and hope both come from God.

And God conquers fear. Because perfect love casts out fear."


I'm off to Houston now, and would ask your prayers for God's Hand of protection on my luggage and Hand of non-sleepiness on my eyelids.

God bless you!
