The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.
Proverbs 29 KJV
Many in our society are making decisions based upon the fear of man. These decisions are made simply to please some select group of individuals who threaten them. Terrorism has many faces and is not exclusive to ISIS, Hezbollah, or Boko Haram. Social terrorism has caused way too many people to lay down their biblical values to be accepted by others.
There is an old adage that goes something like this: “If you feed the alligator and think it won’t get around to eating you, you are a fool.”
Mankind is sinful by nature. He will either be ruled by the sword or the heart. To be ruled by the heart requires a change of heart that only comes by becoming a born-again disciple of Jesus Christ.
Don’t be scared by popular public opinion, or what is portrayed as such. Stand strong in faith believing. Trust in the Lord to bring you through to safety. God’s love casts out all fear. He has given us a spirit of power, love, and a sound, well disciplined mind. Nothing should move us from the truth of God’s immutable Word. That’s where our eternal safety is found.
