The fear

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 8:19 am

1 Samuel 23:3 But David’s men said to him, Behold, we are afraid here in Judah; how much more then if we go to Keilah against the armies of the Philistines?

David’s men were afraid to go and fight the Philistines but they were already afraid where they were.  They were living in hiding, in fear for their lives, but they were comfortable with that fear.  They weren’t happy but they were safe.  The fear stopped them doing anything of importance, it kept them breathing but prevented them from living.  They were simply existing when You had called them to conquer and be great.  When they got past their fear they won the victory, just as You said they would.

Lord I don’t want to live in fear.  I see that it’s no kind of life at all.  Give me the courage to simply step out in obedience when You command me.  Nothing should make me more afraid than the thought of what I may be missing.
