Does fear run you life? Should it? With the day and age we live in, there are many things that we fear~the economy, losing our income, swine flu, nuclear war, wars, death, etc... I guess it is no wonder that we do fear the world we live in to some extent.
After reading this book I have pondered fear. Do I not believe in a Father in Heaven? Then why do I fear? Max Lucado writes that we should have faith in God and not have fear. there is no need to fear. Jesus Christ states many times in the Bible not to have fear~just believe in Him.
When we trust in Him we will have peace and come to an understanding of the fear the world knows. We must trust in our Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ. They know us the best, they are in "charge." Our object in life is to return to our Heavenly Father, fear will keep us from having the faith we need to trust Him.
There were places in the book that I disagreed with on a religious basis. My beliefs are a little different then Lucado's, however the book had so much good in it that it was easy to overlook. It is a simple to read book. Each chapter deals with a different fear and guides us to let go of that fear. I know that we as a society let fear override our life with worrying and carrying on about things we can not do anything about. We need to trust in God and what he has for us and let go of our fear and become Fearless.
