There are few things I hate more than fear and being nervous. Fear is paralyzing. It stops you from doing what you know you need to do or should do; yet it also reveals a lot about where your trust lies. We are told in scripture not to fear, Is 41:10. We are told to "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Phil 4:6-7. As Craig Groeschel put it, we start to fear when we believe that "... Our effort is better than God's power." Is God bigger than my problems or are my problems bigger than God? Sadly, many times, I believe the latter over the former.
