The most commonly repeated command in the Bible is “Fear not!” The fact that it’s repeated so often should surely tell us something about the powerful role that fear plays in our lives. With the recent news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, I read an article where a doctor said that fear is spreading faster than the virus.
The world around us is in fear and turmoil. And too often we allow that fear to fill our hearts. That’s why the most dangerous pandemic is panic and the most contagious disease is fear. Fear is a “dis” ease of the mind. It’s one of the devil’s most powerful weapons he uses against us!
How does one spread the virus of fear? By constantly speaking the evil report rather than God’s report. The only way, however, to stop spreading the virus of fear is to be injected with the truth of God’s Word. When the Word fills your heart, faith will fill your mouth.
”Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God.” – Isaiah 41:13
