Okay. Last week I asked a question about who knows the most repeated command in the Bible? As of this date, nobody has commented in the comments section with their answers. I’m thinking either people are not reading my blog or they are too intimidated to respond in fear that they might give the wrong answer.
The most repeated command in the Bible is any variation of “do not be afraid”. It could be “Fear not”, “Don’t be anxious” etc.
There is a special reason why God has to constantly remind us not to be afraid. And that is because we always are afraid. We fear people, we fear our jobs, we fear our relationships, we fear about money, we fear about the economy, we fear about our freedoms. Let’s be honest, we are fearful people!
Those of us who trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior are also fearful but the difference is that we can bring our fears and anxieties and burdens to Jesus and He will carry it for us. Jesus helps us to go through life without losing hope as those who don’t know Him.
No God, Know Fear
Know God, No Fear
The statement above puts it very short and nice. If you know God, you will not experience fear as one who has no hope because He will help you get through your situation. Those who don’t know God will know fear because they have no hope to help them in their time of need.
Jesus said, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.…” Matthew 11:28-29.
Those who are fearful don’t have rest in their souls. Those who are fearful may look fine on the outside but are a wreck on the inside.
Let us take heed to the most repeated command in the Bible to not fear!
