Read Psalms 39

‘Fear’ carries two meanings in the Bible – one healthy, one unhealthy. In the good sense of the word, it is usually used in the context of respect for God and sometimes of respect for people (especially those in authority). In the bad sense, it means to be frightened. We are supposed to fear God (in the good sense) and not be frightened of anyone or anything else. Many people today live with the opposite. They do not fear God but their lives are full of the wrong kinds of fear. How can you overcome your fears? Be honest about your fears. All of us experience fear. You can try to suppress and deny your fears or you can be honest and open about them. David comes before God with some burning questions. He has tried being ‘silent and still’ but found that his ‘anguish increased’ when he wasn’t communicating with God (v.2). He has realised how much of human life is spent in anxiety and fear. However, the brevity of life gives perspective to our anxieties. This psalm does not provide the full answer to these fears about suffering. Yet, right at the heart of the psalm, as David lays his fears, anguish and frustration before God, we see that he finds the answer in his relationship with God. David declares to God: ‘My hope is in you’ (v.7). And his prayer at the end is a recognition that he depends completely on God for an answer. Life is too short to worry about stupid things. Pray. Trust God. Enjoy life. Don’t let the little things get you down. BIOY

Really good message. Our fear of God should be because of our love for him, the fear of displeasing him. There is no reason to have a morbid fear of him.
