Fear limits our perception of God’s presence

By Dave Henning / April 2, 2012

In If You Want to Walk on Water . . . , John Ortberg delineates the differences between fear and trust as they relate to our perceptions of God: “Fear whispers to us that God is not really big enough to take care of us.  It tells us we are not really safe in his hands.  It causes us to distort the way we think about him. . . . Fear . . . makes us live as though we serve a limited, finite, partially present, semi-competent God. . . . You will never know God is trustworthy if you don’t risk obeying him.”

Proverbs 3:5- “Trust in the Lord with all you heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
