The truth about fear...
Psalm 25:12 "Who is the man who fears the LORD? Him will He instruct in the way that he should choose."
If we have fear in our hearts ABOUT anything but fear of the LORD, He will not instruct us in the way that we should choose...we will become confused and accept a lie for the truth.
This is good news, but it is also a warning...we must fear Him and only Him, walking in relationship with Him and only Him; to receive God's guidance. When we come to Him in prayer for guidance, we must be careful where our hearts are.
We are promised in Psalm 25:8 "Good and upright is the LORD; therefore He instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble His way. All the paths of the LORD are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep His covenant and His testimonies."
Jesus trusted the LORD, and He had a cross to die on. He didn't walk away from that because of the "horrors" of the cross...He believed the truth of the WORD and the truth that the PATHS OF THE LORD ARE STEADFAST LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS.
"Father God, we don't want to be afraid to trust you, yet sometimes we are, please forgive us, and help us...we will fear you only and ask You to instruct us in Your way, guide us in Your path for our lives. And for the things that scare us; for the horrors that we may be afraid of; for the cross that may yet be....in spite of those things...we believe that Your paths are paths of steadfast love and faithfulness, what ever we may face. Amen."
