Have You Ever Felt Fear?

Updated on November 14, 2010

Have you ever felt FEAR?

I think at some stage of your life there has been a time that you have gone into a fearful mood, some may suffer from a fear of depression but I'm not talking about that.

The fear that I'm talking about is a fear in not doing what you know is right, in case you will be punished for doing wrong.

And there's another kind of fear, a fear of been beaten in a fight against some illness, as you have been told there is no hope of cure.

Or you may be in a fear of losing a battle because the odds that are against you are far to great, and all you can see is defeat, so you start to go into fear of loosing.

How many times have we really come to the place where we need proof that God is going to help us get past our fear.

We read in Judges where Gideon twice had doubts about God's help, twice Gideon tested God to show him if He would really give the help that Gideon needed to overcome his fear.

God did as Gideon had asked of Him, and still Gideon had fear, but in the end Gideon did what God said, and as the story goes Gideon as being a great warrior called for many fighting men to go to war to the enemy of 200,000, and all Gideon could get was 32,000 fighting men.

God told Gideon that as he had that number of men he had too many because when they would have won the battle they would feel that they had done it on their own.

God told Gideon to send some back home, so Gideon spoke to them and said that if any have any fear of fighting they could go home, so 22.000 went back home, and he was left with 10.000, but God still said that he had too many, God said to Gideon take them down to the river to drink and who ever drinks like a lapping dog send them home, but any who drink from their cupped hand that will be the required number, so Gideon did this and he was left with only 300 fighting men.

Judges 7: 7,9,10,11.

God said to Gideon to go to the camp of the enemy and he will hear how the battle will be fought, so he and his servent went to the camp and he heard how the battle would be won, so now he knew that God would be there with him to help win the fight , but it took him some time before he realized that he would not be on his own.

Now God did give instructions as to how to go about doing the fighting, Gideon was to give each fighter a horn, pitcher and a torch and to surround the camy with the 300 fighters, then at midnight the horns were to be blown loudly and beaking the pitchers and using the torch, then the enemy would become confused and would start to fight each other.

Verses,16.19.20.21.

When we stop trying to do our own thing we call on God for His help,then we are able to defeat any fear that has come on us, just as Gideon relied on God, and the battle was won.

Many times fear tries to over power us, and we try to do things on our own, and wonder why nothing happens as we expect it to.
