Over the July 4th weekend we were thrilled with the visit of three of our grandchildren and their dad and mom. Those kids are full of life and vigor. They view life as a grand adventure. .
We went to Tanganyika. It is an interactive zoo in Goddard and every time the grandkids come to visit, they want to go there. Birds land on their shoulder and they feed them. They pet a turtle, they touch a snake and they feed a rhinoceros.
Carli the middle child is two years old. She proclaimed that she did not want to feed the rhinoceros; she wanted to ride the camel. She is a small blond headed bundle of laughter and energy. She stood in line with her dad for a long time and finally she mounted that camel and loved the ride. Her dad rode with her and provided help and assurance. It was a wonderful experience for her. I was wondering if it was too much for her, but it was absolutely a grand time for little Carli. I was scared that she would be frightened and the ride would be a terror filled experience.
At times we miss wonderful opportunities because of fear. God knows that fear is a challenge for us. Did you know that “Fear not” is the most repeated phrase in the bible. Three hundred and sixty five times the Bible commands “Fear Not.” God knew that faith is a challenge and so he constantly repeats for us to not be afraid, but to trust in him.
How many wonderful opportunities do we miss because we are afraid? How often does the church pass on fantastic opportunities because of fear? I wonder what we could become as individuals, as a church, as a family and as God’s people if we pushed terror aside and filled our hearts and minds with trust.
“So, do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)
