It may seem confusing, but it is a clear indication of the state of your faith. If having fear and being afraid was the same thing, it would mean that human beings have no control over their own lives whatsoever.
It´s inevitable to be afraid but having fear or not having it is optional.
There is a big difference between being afraid and having fear.
Those who chose to have fear do so because they doubt the God is with them.
Those who choose to have fear do it because they don’t believe that God is with them.
Fear hinders a person from being who he/she really is however revolt makes a person become who he/she should be.
Let’s find out together if what I’m saying is true:
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41.10)
Now you know why God forbids those who say they believe in Him from having fear. Feeling is inevitable, but having is optional.
If you have been having fear, unfortunately, it’s because you have doubted that God is with you, and if you doubt such a thing, then, it is because you are not walking hand in hand with the righteous right hand of God.
Please stop and reflect on your actions and reactions when facing circumstances and feelings.
Be honest, have you been having fear or feeling fear?
