There’s something called fear of the unknown. Fear in itself is an unpleasant feeling triggered by the perception of danger, real or imagined. Fear of the unknown could arise from anything or anyone or any situation you’re unfamiliar with. We all like to remain in our known comfort zones.
Most of the instructions you find difficult to follow, are things you know are right, but due to some certain potential (perceived) negative results, you find it difficult to take a step forward. Fear comes from ignorance. The moment you know what is in the unknown, fear leaves. Our Lord Jesus said that the Holy spirit will show us things to come (John 16:13). He said we need not worry about tomorrow, that is, we shouldn’t the afraid to step into the territories he’s leading us into. The moment you know whom you believe and exalt him over your fears, you’re free from them.
There are three dangers associated with fear. You need to avoid them. First, fear stops your obedience. In 1 Sam 15:24, King Saul chose to spare some animals from Amalek, and even spared their king, contrary to God’s instruction. He claimed, he feared people and obeyed their voice, instead of God’s command to destroy everything, human or livestock. Please don’t be like Saul. Secondly, fear pegs you on a spot. The Israelites, (except Joshua and Caleb) missed the promised Land, because they feared the Giants they saw on the land – Num 13:31
Lastly, fear brings impatience and error. Again, in 1 Sam 13:11-12, King Saul said he had to ‘force himself’ to offer burnt offering (an assignment strictly for the priests) because he feared that the people will lose confidence in him. He disobeyed Samuel’s instruction to wait for him for 7 days. Samuel delayed, but sure he returned on that seventh day, only to find that Saul had committed this error, due to impatience, arising from fear. You will not be like Saul, in Jesus name. The Antidote: Study to Know whom you believed. God is bigger than your fears!
