Mar 05 – Fear

After a terrorist bombing in Bali, Indonesia in 2002, one man reacted by giving up travelling. Three years later, he finally returned to Bali with his family, only to be caught in a suicide bombing on Jimbaran Beach. Terrorism has become so widespread now in 2015, that it is hard to find a newscast without mention of it somewhere in the world. It has even reached Canada. Threats, beheadings, and bombings derive their success by creating and exporting fear. But whether we are beset by fears of terrorism, sickness, death, or personal failure, when we trust in Christ, as our personal Saviour, we can say with confidence, “Fear is on every side…but I trust in You O Lord…my times are in Your hands.” Yes, Jesus reassures us in this troubled world, promising “peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you…let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. “ Born again believers can claim God’s promise, that He “ has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
