Seems to be an easy command to follow, especially when it comes from an Angel. And yet, fear runs rampant through our everyday lives. What’s our problem? We know that fear does not come from God. That leaves only one other source for fear. That ‘other’ source wants us doubting our heavenly God.
Psalm 27: The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?
Or, how about Jesus saying in the Gospel of Matthew … Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

In this podcast episode, Dr. Issam Nemeh talks about how powerful fear is in this world. The devil wields enormous influence with fear. Even the animals are living in continuous fear. It is a matter of survival.
Our other teacher is Linus, from the Charlie Brown Christmas special. While reciting Luke 2, almost unnoticed is Linus dropping his ever present blue security blanket at precisely the moment ‘fear not’ is spoken.

One of the greatest ways I can show God that I love Him is to trust Him, with everything. I mean truly trust him with everything. A lack of trust is a lack of love. Dear Jesus, help me with my sin of fear. Fear separates me from you. Help me to trust you more. Help me to give you all my worries and fears. Help me to… fear not. I mean, if our friend Linus can do it, we can do it.
Back pain, sciatica leg pain, and a numbness in his foot brought Joe Fink to a Dr. Nemeh healing service. The first miracle for Joe, was seeing a ballroom of people praying for each other. Here were 100 strangers caring for one another. Joe could actually feel the love that was so obviously present. Next, came Joe’s own physical miracle.
