Snakes, Fear, and Faith

We don’t have to let fear win the battle of our mind or soul. God’s promise to those who belong to Him is that the battle belongs to Him too.

The other day, my wife showed me a picture that was posted by some neighbors of a rattlesnake that was killed not far from us. I have to tell you, seeing a picture of a rattlesnake in our neighborhood changes the way I walk in my backyard. I don’t like rattlesnakes. They scare me!

What is it that scares you today? There are certainly a lot of different things that can fit that description. It may not be a snake, but fear often feels like a serpentine, slithering thing. Fear leads us to sleepless nights. Fear can cause us to isolate ourselves or push others away or do crazy things.

Jehoshaphat was king in Judah, and he led the people in the kingdom to pursue a life that was pleasing to God (2 Chron 19:4). While he was leading the nation back to God, combined armies from Moab and the Ammonites came to do battle against Judah. Jehoshaphat was afraid.

“Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.” (2 Chronicles 20:3)

In this one verse, God shows us first steps in dealing with fear: Seek the Lord. I love the language of this verse, Jehoshaphat “set himself to seek the Lord.” When fear hits, and it will, our first response should be to seek the Lord. We need to position ourselves for God to speak to us, for God to comfort us, for God to encourage us.

When fear hits, have you set yourself to seek the Lord?

Now, listen to God’s response to us when we set ourselves to seek Him.

“Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” (2 Chronicles 20:15)

We don’t have to let fear win the battle of our mind or soul. God’s promise to those who belong to Him is that the battle belongs to Him too. He is the God who loves us and is committed to us. Seeking the Lord in the face of fear sets us on a path of faith, where confidence in God and courage from God rules our minds and hearts.

Today, face your fear with faith by seeking the Lord!
