I was watching a wasp as it flew into my screened enclosure, I was sitting there with the door opened so my dogs could go into the yard. Even though it was hot, I was enjoying the outdoors and doing a little reading. Not really paying attention, something else came flying by, and I was sure it was that wasp. By the time I figured out that it wasn’t the wasp, and that it was just a moth, I almost killed myself trying to get away from it, and the moth nearly ended up dead. Doesn’t that sound like fear versus fact? Over and over, fear is shouted, so when the truth comes sauntering along, we don’t recognize it because our minds are set the be fearful. The truth might hurt, but we are better off knowing it, rather than believing the lies fear presents. If we are lucky, the truth is as harmless as a moth. In this day and age, we need to be in communication with the Holy Spirit and ask him to clarify what is truth and what is a lie. There is so much propaganda being shouted that we can’t navigate through it without his help. Ask God to reveal the truth; he wants you to be well informed and will lead you to the answer.
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” Now who is there to harm you if you are zealous for what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, 1 Peter 3:12-14
