"The purity that God asks in your and my life, is not a purity the see's how close you can get to some imaginary line, it is a purity that has you running as fast as you can in the opposite direction." Joshua Harris

Is FEAR sin?...

Fear is an uneasiness of mind, upon the thought of future evil likely to befall us. An emotion experienced in anticipation of some pain or danger. Consider these two key words in the definition of fear-MIND and THOUGHT. Fear has everything to do with the mind, our thought pattern and belief system primarily our belief system. 

Is there a problem of situation that is BIGGER than GOD ?
 The scripture says,"I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me." Phil 4:13
"With God all things are possible." Matt 19:26 It is not us, it is God, God is able friends. Peter started sinking because he was focusing on the wind and the waves. If he had kept his eyes upon Jesus, fear would not have entered into his heart, That's the problem. We are trying to stand on your own two feet. We are trying to fight our own battles. Then the bitter reality awakens our consciousness in accepting the fact that the present situation is more than we can handle. Fear kicks in because when we plug-in personal effort into the equation of victory and do the math, the answer equals defeat.  Immediately, we are over come by fear, because we are not in control. Then fear of death, the fear of bodily injury over shadows us. Our admonition dear readers is, "In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and he shall direct thy paths." Prov3:6

Worry is a form of fear, a fear of things to come, not trusting in God to work all things for our good. God wants us to trust Him in everything. I think God doesn't want us to fear there are many times in the New and Old Testament He tells us not to fear. Isaiah41:10 "Do not fear for I am with you: Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
So is fear sin? Well when you worry of doubt or fear someone or something are you trusting God? In the Bible there are 300 plus times where God says not to fear..Is fear sin? if it makes you doubt or not trust God...then YES.
But where not perfect and we will never be here on this earth.
I strive to walk in my Jesus foot steps but most of all God
wants me to trust Him in everything....
