To fear is in a sense ‘normal.’ ‘No!’ Says God, ‘Trust Me.’
It is sometimes easier said than done. However, the following seems like my perfect antidote. In the report of God’s creation of man we read,
‘…the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.’ Genesis 2:7
Research says the following: A human body that weighs 154 pounds (70 kilograms) is comprised of 7 billion billion billion atoms, which is a 7 followed by 27 zeros.1 That means God took those many atoms and made the first man, Adam, from them. A God who can do that, can surely take care of my problems.
For me, to fear, is an insult to God. My antidote to fear is, I just tell God, ‘You can do it. Thanks!’
