During the Great Depression, President Roosevelt famously said, “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” Those were riveting words, however, I don’t agree. There are many things in our world to fear! Today, people fear losing their health, their wealth, their savings, their job…they even fear losing their family or friends.
God’s Word has plenty to say about conquering fear, facing fear with faith, and living a future free from the bondage of fear.
Not all fear is bad. Jesus literally told us to fear on one occasion: “…fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28). The unsaved have something to be afraid of. This is healthy fear.
