I can think of a few things that increase my heart rate, some out of anticipation and others due to anxiety. Am I not trusting these situations and things to God? Probably not if I'm experiencing fear. Someone once told me that fear is a sin and a sign we aren't trusting God. Ouch! Right? With this in mind, I'm going to focus some attention to why these verses and conversations on fear are interrupting my thought processes and days, and if a lack of trust is at the root of the problem then I'm diving into the Word to restore the necessary hope, assurance, encouragement, and strength necessary to trust God in ALL things.
don’t be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, help you.
I am here with My right hand to make right and to hold you."
Isaiah 41:10 VOICE
