When is fear not good? - Fear - TouchPoints

When is fear not good?

Hebrews 10:31It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Fear is terrifying if we have to fall into the hands of God without having made peace with him.

Genesis 26:7He was afraid to say, “She is my wife.”

Joshua 17:16“The Canaanites . . . have iron chariots. . . . They are too strong for us.”

Fear is not good if it keeps us from doing the things we ought to do. We are not meant to live in fear.

Numbers 13:28-31“But the people living there are powerful. . . . We even saw giants there! . . . We can’t go up against them! They are stronger than we are!”

Fear is not good when we allow it to distort our view of our great God who is greater than any problem we face.
