Guest Blog: Should We Live in Fear?

Christian Blog Ghana

When anyone experiences a disaster, especially if he/she is a believer, so  many questions linger on the minds of people like, how did God allow this to happen? Let us take, the June 3rd disaster at Circle, for example, a lot of people started questioning God and how he allowed such a thing to happen but in all of this we need to remember…

.He said to them, “Why are you so afraid?…( Mark 4:40)

Many a tragedy befalls mankind and in the natural sequence of events, questions arise and responses are given in an attempt to allay fears or strengthen or weaken certain beliefs. Common amongst these questions is ‘why did God allow this to happen’. The faith of many waver in the process.

O taste and see that the Lord is good… (Psalm 34:8).There are several ways of knowing a person. For example, you can know that a person is good based on your relationship with the person or several testimonies of such a person (of course from reliable sources). The psalmist in the above scripture testifies of the goodness of God. The people of Israel also testified saying “For he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever toward Israel, Hallelujah! (Ezra 3:11).”In Malachi 3:6 God makes an emphatic statement of his character, “I do not change”. Drawing inference from the above scriptures we can say that God can only be good. God cannot be the architect of disaster. He loves his children steadfastly.

Jesus said in John 16:33 that “…… In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world“. Tragedies (tribulations) may occur but in spite of these, Jesus would have us function in a particular way. He would have us be cheerful. I ask again “should we live in fear?” … An emphatic no.

Finally picture Jesus saying to you ” child,be of a good cheer in spite of your tribulation” . He only has the answers to our ailing hearts. Remain lifted!
