In the last episode Chuck and Aaron talked about fearing God. In this episode they talk about facing our fear of things that God doesn’t want us to be afraid of.
While some types of fear can be helpful – the brief momentary fears that give us bursts of focus and energy are a gift of God to help keep us safe. But the deep, chronic fears that paralyze us are symptoms of idolatry: we fear loss, and the prospect of losing things we love and trust necessarily create fear. But God wants us to trust and love him in such a way that are fears are alleviated by the belief that he is all we need and that we will never lose him.
