"Fear does this. Fear corrodes our confidence in God's goodness....Fear unleashes a storm of doubts, anger-stirring doubts.
And it turns us into control freaks. 'Do something about the storm!' is the implicit demand of the question. 'Fix it or...or...or else!' Fear, at its center, is a perceived loss of control. When life spins wildly we grab for a component of life we can manage: our diet, the tidiness of our house, the armrest of a plane, or, in many cases, people. The more insecure we feel, the meaner we become. We growl and bare our fangs. Why? Because we are bad? In part. But also because we feel cornered...
Fear creates a form of spiritual amnesia. It dulls our miracle memory. It makes us forget what Jesus hs done and how good God is."
-- Max Lucado, Fearless
Isn't it amazing the continued way God drops something into your life at PRECISELY the right moment?
