Fear can be a prison. There are 365 Bible verses which command us not to fear. One verse for each day of the year!

There was a time when the entire army of Israel was in a prison of personal fear.

An intimidating giant dared them to fight but they all were afraid & terrorized. They all hoped that the giant would go away.

Then a young and unassuming shepherd boy walked into their “prison of fear”. He really knew & loved God. He had been studying hard in the “Sheep Pasture Theological Seminary”!

Right away, innocent shepherd boy overcame any fear which he may have had by focusing on his zealous love for his God’s reputation.

1 Samuel 17:26:
“Then David spoke to the men who were standing by him, saying: ‘What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine, and takes away the reproach from Israel? For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should taunt the armies of the living God?”

And 1 Samuel 17:32
“And David said to Saul: “Let no man’s heart fail on account of him; your servant will go and fight with this Philistine.’ “

And you know the rest of the story: “Bull’s Eye!”
David’s stone LEFT A REAL IMPRESSION on Goliath!

Now, go bail yourself out of your prison of fear!

Moses. Esther. The little boy with the fish & rolls lunch.
Are you always available to your Lord for service which He has for you? Work on that.
When the Lord of all taps you on the shoulder to give you a job, don’t stay: “Me?”;
instead say: “Okay! Me!”

The little boy Samuel repeatedly heard his name being called in the middle of the night. He thought it was his caregiving priest calling him, but it wasn’t; it was the Lord.

Samuel’s response to the calling of God should be our response: “Speak, for Thy servant is listening.”
Availability to God is a beautiful thing!
