So there must be a reason that the words "fear not" appear in the bible 52 times (or more depending on how it's counted I guess). Yes, we should fear God, but not circumstances. "The fear of God is the beginning of all knowledge" Psalm 1:7. Oh, how difficult it is to remember, though, what Jesus said "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid" (John 14:27) when times are tough. Another Schuller quote, "Tough times never last. Tough people do"
In 1 Peter 5:7 "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you" means I have to be willing to turn my anxieties over to God. In other words turn over MY control so my heart isn't troubled. So it seems I need to be honest with God since He already KNOWS what worries me AND what I fear. God will never be overpowered by the things that threaten me.....or any of us.
