Meditation : What Fear Does To Us

Why the most frequent command in the Bible is “DO NOT FEAR”:

 

1) Fear causes us to reduce the size of GOD & elevate the stature of man.

 

2) Fear causes us to lead people in the wrong direction.

 

3) Fear causes us to stay quiet, when we should speak out.

 

4) Fear causes us to be passive about an issue that the LORD has called to our attention.

 

5) Fear causes us to seek consensus, rather than seeking the voice of the LORD.

 

6) Fear causes us not to engage the broken, the hurting, the misfits and the neglected, because it would complicate our lives.

 

7) Fear causes us to refuse to embrace change, because we care more about our comfort level than conforming to the image of CHRIST.

 

8) Fear causes us to control things and take matters into our own hands, rather than trusting the LORD and OTHERS.

 

9) Fear causes us to conceal shame in our lives, instead of asking others for help

 

10) Fear causes us to seek the easy decision, rather than the right one.
