Ever worked a true “white-knuckle” flight? Severe turbulence, a serious “mechanical” of some kind, maybe a bomb scare? Circumstances of these and many other kinds, in the air and on the ground, can invoke fear in us.
The answer to that fear is always truly knowing our God is God and He is always with us.
By divine definition, nothing in Heaven or on Earth can be stronger than the Maker of both. God is greater than all and that all does include whatever it is that scares us.
As we come to truly and deeply know that we belong to a sovereign God, we can also come to know eventual freedom from every fear that confronts us. The Scripture tells us, “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31). It is in believing this truth that any accosting dread can be cast out of our lives.
“What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave Him up for us all—how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?” Romans 8:31 NIV
