But I don’t believe you.
I don’t mean that in a mean way. The truth is, you and I are human. We have feelings. God made us that way.
The question is not, “Are you afraid?” The real question is, “What are you afraid of?”
And even more importantly, “What are you going to do about it?”
There’s a lot of misunderstanding about fear. Some in Christian circles affirm you should never be afraid of anything. And in heaven that will be true. But down here, it’s a factor we must continually deal with in our finite human existence.
Think of it like sickness. God doesn’t want you sick. If you live a healthy lifestyle you have a better likelihood of not being sick. But you are not a failure as a Christian if your physical human body develops a sickness.
