Fear and trembling overwhelm me, and I can’t stop shaking. Oh, that I had wings like a dove; then I would fly away and rest!” (Psalms‬ ‭55‬:‭5-6‬ NLT)

It was just one of the “Perfect Storm” moments. You know, where about 5 stressful, painful situations all came to a head in a day. Any one of these alone were brutal, but all at once?! And there I was, a grown man, sitting on my couch, home alone, with a blanket over my head so I could hide and cry, wishing I could sprout wings and fly away, never to hurt again.

We all reach those breaking points; it’s not “un-normal”. Just as the psalmist desired to run away, we do too. But fear is a cruel task master, one that must be broken or else it will seep like a contagious disease into every other area of our life. No other sin destroys faith like fear, yet nothing pleases the Father’s heart like faith.

So, you have a choice: stay lingering in fear, our take a measured step of faith towards a deliverance. You can’t be brave on your own, you must let God make you brave. As Ephesians 6 says, when you’ve done all you can, just stand still. Then in that place of calm surrender, God will fight your battle and win! Never give up, never surrender! You are strong today!
