” Perfect love cast out fear”
” It is only the fear of God that can deliver us from the fear of man”
The only Cleric to sign the Declaration of Independence
Emotions may come and go, but we must never let them mislead us along the paths we walk. Feelings also may come and go, but the commitment will always stay, the commitment will keep us true to Jesus Christ, as well as having true faith, even at our most vulnerable times, and will keep away negative emotions like, doubt and fear. Jesus Christ chose the cross, forever committing himself to us, So let’s chose, on the front end, to be equally committed to him, no matter what trials or tragedies may come.
Fear will come to each of us at very different times, it will take full control as well. There are many different fears we will face, but none of them, with the true faith and commitment to Jesus Christ, that we can not conquor. A fear of anything is mostly of the unknown, and not truly knowing of what may be next to come, as we move forward through the fear. You climb a mountain and at the summit you are within the clouds of a storm, there is lightening all around you, and your hair on your head is standing straight up, from all the electric energy around you? This is a fear of not knowing where thr next lightening strike will be, and hopefully not a direct hit on the top of your head? You gain confidence with these types of fears, simply by knowing the right thing to do and taking shelter in a spot away from anywhere, that will reduce the chances of that direct hit.
Fear will also come from any unknown, like for instance, camping off the grid, in an area with no service, no runing water, no utilities, where you rely on a propane lantern or a campire to see at night. You are surrounded by thick forest and the night sky makes for a tough view at night, plus not knowing what is within the forest and fearing what may slip out of the forest, as it has you on alert, for every little sound or crackling of branches, within the thick forest. This type of camping will have you take the action of being prepared, while you are deep within mother nature, but with the true commitment in Jesus Christ and the faith in him, will give you all the hope for a safe time, to be had. Fear of the unknown is the biggest fear that will come to us all, and it will change you in many different ways, but if we handle this fear correctly, always keeping the faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, then there will be no fear we can not get through. Fear will bring the dark clouds of doubt over our heads, as they will not last and the light will be over us soon enough, with the true faith and commitment in Jesus Christ.
Through the fear of God, is the hope we will have to get through all the other fears we have. God is the one that can get us out of the darkness and into the light, but sometimes we fear God for the wrong reseasons, we let the other fears control us so much, that now we do not focus on what is real, then try to move forward in our own little made up realities, to try to escape into the fake world and try to be safe along our paths. Fear will have us bury our true selves deep within, as now we portray this fake self, so others around us will see us as okay? Once we are in this fake world, it becomes harder to escape that and get back to reality, cause now we have become conditioned with a fake feeling of security. This is when we need to truly keep the true faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, as he will guide us out of the darkness of the fear and into the light of God, so we all can walk our paths in peace, within the true joy of this journey.
We only fear God because, we have become conditioned from the darkness of the other fears and have lost the faith and the commitment of Jesus Christ. So many of us have walked away from the house of God, which is what leads us down this path of other fears around us. This leads us to the paths of many temptations, which will bring us these fears, and now without the visit into the house of God, we then try to walk through the darkness on our own, with no other around, to help us in the time of need. Just by looking into the deep forest, you may never see any other type of wildlife, but there are many types that live deep inside the forest, and when not prepared, it will make for a difficult time ahead. You learn with the faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, just how to move forward with each step, to overcome those fears, as now you can walk through the darkness of the forest and get back to the light of your camp, get back to familiar area and the comfort it brings, so you can step out of the darkness, as the light from the moon and the stars, light up the night sky, as you sit by the campfire and see all the true beauty all around you.
” Fear is within us all, it will take full control as well, it will bring us many temptations, and deeper into the unknown of the fear”
“When the darkness of the fear takes hold of us, it is the faith and commitment of Jesus Christ, that helps us out of the darkness and into the light of salvation”
