When GOD is Near NO Fear - Very True

Once, a hungry jackal set out in search of food and ended up at an abandoned battlefield where he heard strange sounds. He was scared and he thought, “I must disappear from here before the man who is making these sounds gets me.”

So, he started running but stopped within a short distance and told himself, “It’s stupid that I’m running away in fear without knowing the reason. Let me go back and find out what really those sounds are and who is making them.”

Warily, the jackal marched in the direction of the sounds and found a drum there. It was this drum, which was sending the sounds whenever the branches of the tree above brushed against it. He laughed at being silly to run away from the noise from a drum.

The jackal began playing the drum and thought that there could be food inside it. The jackal put his head into the drum by piercing its side. He was disappointed to find no food in it. But he consoled himself saying that he rid himself of the fear of sound.

Friends! Like the jackal we too get scared of people and situations in life. When God is with us, we shall not fear man or situations. The Bible says, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). The Holy Spirit is a Person Who enables us to overcome fear and we shall be bold as a lion in life.

Is'nt it TRUE?
