There is only one reason we would have any kind of fear
: we don’t know God. If we truly understood who God is, we would know His beyond amazing love for us. We would get that He is the Creator, so He has power over everything. We would understand our place in His royal family. If we understood who we are and who He is, there would be no reason to fear.
But the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits. (Dan 11:32) Not only would we not be fearful about anything, we would be strong. And not only strong, we would do amazing things. Great exploits! Gideon never dreamed of doing anything great, until he realized who God was for him. He had to learn it for himself.
There’s no reason for us to not be strong, amazing people. The first commandment is to love God with everything we’ve got. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. (Jam 4:8) Do you think you’d get to know God if He came to you? Take the first step and see how amazing you can be.
