The Effects of Fear

A devotion shared by Zach Herzog from Max Lucado. 

Christ-followers contract malaria, bury children and battle addictions. And, as a result, we face fears. It's not the absence of storms that sets us apart. It's whom we discover in the storm - an unstirred Christ. 

Matthew 8:24 says, "Jesus was sleeping." Now there's a scene. The disciples scream, yet Jesus dreams. "Do you not care that we are perishing?" Fear corrodes our confidence in God's goodness. It unleashes a swarm of anger-stirring doubts. Fear creates a form of spiritual amnesia. It makes us forget what Jesus has done and how good God is. Jesus takes our fears seriously.  Don't be afraid.
