No Fear

some time ago a friend spoke of a study she was doing, so i apologize for not knowing what that study was. in any event, she shared with me something so profound that almost immediately i disagreed with her. that is, until i stopped to really think about it. it went something like this:
“the areas of our lives where we have the most fear, are the areas we trust God the least.”
“wow, how can this be true?” i thought. it sounded like a complete contradiction. of course i trust God, especially in those areas! why wouldn’t i? they mean the most to me. i pray the most for and about these areas! 

what i figured out: praying doesn’t actually mean we fear less… we have to also release it to His care. it’s only when we have our hands completely off it … that He can do His thing and fill our [now empty] hands with His love and care!

The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?‭‭
Psalm‬ ‭118:6‬

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Joshua‬ ‭1:9‬

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians‬ ‭4:7
