Fear Not

Do you think it is possible to know God’s will every step of the way? Why or why not? What are some of the ways we can attune ourselves to God’s will for us? Which of these will you be incorporating into your life now? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 251).

Must we always be presumptive in identifying God’s will for us?  Is the human mind so susceptible to rationalization that our proclamation of God’s will shall of necessity always be suspect?  While cognizant of these questions, our perception can yet be such that we have firm conviction as to what we should do based upon our best lights. In the mature mind, risk and the fear of it bears upon many grand decisions.  It is an interesting phenomenon that sometimes we delay and sometimes we do not.  Fear can not only cause delay, it can also press for urgent action.  Typically when fear is removed as a barrier to great decisions, I attribute this remarkable lack of fear to the Holy Spirit–when I no longer fear not taking an action or conversely take significant actions without fear. I hasten to add that not all outcomes from these decisions are ideal from a human perspective–nor must they be.
