Psalms 23:4 (KJV) Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Danladi accepted the Lord Jesus when he was in the military because of the way some of his Christian colleagues were bold and unafraid in the midst of the enemy fire. When he was away in war with some of his colleagues, he observed that they were full of courage and confidence and were not afraid of untimely death even in the midst of the fiercest battle. Donald was particularly one guy he liked fighting side by side with because he always felt safe when he was with him. Most other soldiers were afraid and the fear could be felt, but these Christian soldiers were always quoting Bible verses like Psalm 23 and their courage was contagious. After they were deployed back home from battle, Danladi decided to become a Christian because he was convicted by the faith of his Christian colleagues.
Unfortunately, unlike Danladi’s colleagues, there are many Christians who fear exactly the way unbelievers fear because they do not understand that if the Lord is their shepherd then He would be with them even if they walk through the darkest valley. Because of this fear, they disconnect from the grace and covering of the Lord(Hebrews 11:6). The victory with which we overcome the dark forces of this world is appropriated through our faith. Continued fear is usually an indication of failing faith.
Go into today remembering that if you truly believe that the Lord is with you, it is an insult on Him to be constantly afraid of what the enemy can do to you. The reason why we shouldn’t live fearful lives as believers is that we understand that the Lord is with us.
Prayer: Ask the Lord to forgive every faithlessness in your heart and give you the understanding never again to live in fear.
