The Lord Over Fear

Have you ever really been afraid?  I mean the kind of fear that increases your heart rate until you think it will jump out of your chest.
I remember flying into Paris, France one day on a trip to the Holy Land. A fog bank with zero visibility had covered the airport. The temperature was 32 degrees and ice was forming. We approached the landing and finally the pilot pulled out. He announced that unless he could see the ground he could not land safely. He made a second attempt. Fear! You could see it in the passengers faces. I could feel it in my own body. Fortunately, we made it safely, but fear is never removed. For sufficient reasons it will appear.
Fear comes in different colors: fear of failure, fear of being alone, fear of heights, fear of unemployment, fear of financial reversal, fear of rejection, and fear of cancer.
Fear lurks in the corner waiting for a time to strike. It may never strike but will destroy your inner peace. I gained my peace that day by issuing a prayer heavenward for God to care for my family.
 "The Lord is my light and salvation; whom I shall fear? The Lord is the defense of my life, whom shall I fear? When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh, my adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell. Though a host encamp against me, in spite of this I shall be confident...Wait for the Lord; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord." ( Ps. 27: 1-3, 14)
