This teaching is about fear not being from God and how we can combat it by focusing on what God has given us: power, love and a sound mind. The teacher compares fear to a hunting snare; it is targeted, subtle, and the more that one struggles, the tighter it gets. It is a deadly trap. We can escape the tricks of the Adversary by putting our trust in God. Fear has to be dissolved by the confidence that we have in God, not in ourselves. We have to be watchful of when those traps are being set for us because fear robs us of God’s promises. Fear is a great opportunity to believe God. We can extinguish fear with renewed mind believing as quick as the hiss of putting out a cigarette in a puddle. God wants to fight our battles for us, and He’s proven Himself faithful over and over again. In a poor or mediocre life, there is fear; in a more than abundant life, there cannot be room for fear. Let’s be confident in our God and keep the Word on in our brains.
