A Spirit of Fear

This is a great story that always helps me remeber that God is in control of everything and is watching over us.


Lately she had stopped running. She enjoyed jogging in her neighborhood but recent threats from neighborhood dogs that ran free had put a fear into her and so she had stopped running. She did not want her fear to change her life--her lifestyle--so she prayed, "Father, I know you are my Protector and you can keep me from all harm. Please take away this fear that has overtaken me and give me a peace that only You can give."

And then she stepped out on faith and feeling apprehension flooding over her, she ran--one mile, two. Suddenly, she heard the patter of feet behind her and turning, she saw a great white dog trotting toward her--not menacingly, but with what seemed like a purpose. As she continued to jog toward home, the dog kept pace with her and she began to relax. At one point, she passed by a house where the dog in the front yard began to bark and run along the boundaries of the underground invisible fence. As if to say, "Don't worry, I'm here," the dog at her side positioned himself between her and the threat. Two miles later, she was back at her door, the dog still at her side. As she entered the house, she realized that the apprehension she felt had been replaced by a peace. How good God is to provide as a means of protection and affirmation, the very thing she had feared.

How good indeed!


2 Timothy 1:7 says: God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love, and sound judgment. (HCSB)
