AUGUST 3 – FEAR

8/3 Psalm 7:9-11
End the wickedness of the ungodly, but help all those who obey you. For you look deep within the mind and heart, O righteous God. God is my shield, saving those whose hearts are true and right. God is a judge who is perfectly fair. He is angry with the wicked every day.
FEAR
Our society creates a mindset where we fear the shadows and ignore the truth. The shadows consist of the attacks of the enemy in our minds and our own sense of insecurity at anything that appears to be harmful. We fear most the bodily harm that could befall us. Our real fear should be reserved for the One that can destroy us forever. Fear God that is the beginning of wisdom. God responded to our fear in Jesus Christ. He gives us His righteousness and cures the fear we would otherwise feel in the presence of a Holy God.
