Have you ever been overcome with fear? Maybe it’s a fear of doing some seemingly dangerous activity like skydiving or riding a motorcycle. Maybe it’s a fear of people, what they think of you or if they will laugh at you. Maybe it’s a fear of being alone with no one there when it’s dark and stormy or no one to care. Fear is a powerful thing. For some it motivates them to do something, like a fear of being poor once again causes them to work long hours. For others it prevents them from moving on in life.
Psalm 33:8 says this, “Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him!” (ESV) Of all the things we fear, the One we are to truly fear is the LORD. I like this verse because its description reminds me of a hurricane or tornado.
