Fear no evil


Many are scared of that which is defined as the absence or opposite of that which is described as being good. A lot of debates come from this definition and a lot of opinions but for the sake of argument let’s pinpoint evil as the absence of what is good for us. We should be aware of ourselves better than anyone and if we overstep that which is good for us than we are acting in the realm of evil tendencies and traits that is stimulated by fear. If we develop a relationship with Christ than we will be positioned for him to become our shepherd, and this shepherd has an unending supply that will never die. The bible declares “The Lord is our shepherd and we shall not want.” This supply helps us to rest in green pastures and is truly refreshing to our soul. As we are refreshed we are healed to be all God wants us to be for real. This is experienced as we allow him to guide us into all truth. This develops purpose in our life and is tested daily but if we do not stray from his path we will be protected every day. Psalm 23 states “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures, He leadeth me besides the still water, He restoreth my soul, He leadeth me in the path of righteousness, for his name sake, yea though I walk through the valley of shadow of death, I will fear no evil,” We should not fear any evil because God is faithful and helps us to be discipline so that we can reach our goals. As we strive to reach our goals we are running away from the fear that tries to hinder us from being what we were created for, and this establishes our hope. As we keep hope alive we are concentrating and this concentration will help our ideas become abundant. This abundant thinking will help us be secure in who we are which will take us to a level where we will live a life of not being afraid of our potential. Psalm 23 encourages us like this “I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”
