“Faith Brings Fear”
Do not rejoice over me, my enemy: When I fall, I will arise: When I sit in darkness, The Lord will be a light to me.
This is such a beautiful scripture. I think if you are going through struggles in life it really brings the meaning out. It’s like when I used to go hunting in the bayous of South Louisiana. At the end of the day, at the camp, we would make something to eat and it didn’t matter what you made, it always tasted better than the best restaurant.
The fictional character Don Quixote said: “Hunger is the best sauce in the world.” That’s how this verse sounds when you’re going through one of life’s trials. Hunger is the best flavor enhancer there is, I’ve noticed over the years that hunger brings out different characteristics in people. Some people get nice, it even seems as though they soften, others get angry or agitated, some get faint especially, if they have diabetes, when fasting it can make you feel better.
Our pets get very loving when they’re hungry. I once had a friend, she had a pet Boa constrictor. It became people friendly when it was hungry.
When you’re going through a trial this verse sounds so much better, has so much more meaning, and so much more authority. Say it out loud with faith and you will feel the circumstances lift.
The enemy tries to bring fear into your life, that’s why Jesus said:
“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
When you start worrying about tomorrow it brings fear into your thoughts. Fear is the opposite of faith. But when you read this out loud, it builds your faith. Turn it around in your mind and spirit today.
