Fear can overtake us. Anxiety challenges our ability and attitude. Some days it is like a flood.
Fear can be held back with a dike. It is the dike of courage and supernatural power given us by the Holy Spirit.
The Apostle Peter calls on us to “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7 ) Knowing that God is in a good mood is the foundation of the dike of courage. God cares for me personally. The great Pastor, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. knew that foundation.
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear. ~~Martin Luther King, Jr.
