I love singing and listening to the songs we have in our church. They are all so beautiful in their own special ways. For me, many have sweet memories attached to them. Some remind me of growing up at the old Branch 3. Some remind me of being at campouts as a kid, and many stir up memories of when God touched my heart. These songs are all so precious and dear to me.
I also enjoy listening to Christian songs on the radio. There is one right now that I find so powerful called “Fear Is a Liar” by Zach Williams. The words give me chills. I want to share the chorus with you today:
“Fear, he is a liar
He will take your breath
Stop you in your steps
Fear, he is a liar
He will rob your rest
Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire
‘Cause fear he is a liar
Wow. Such powerful words. Such a powerful message. I wanted to share this song with you today because fear IS a liar. Today, we can watch the news and everything around us changing, and we can easily feel fearful.
All things feared come from the liar (satan). He is the father of all lies. He wants us to feel scared, fearful, hopeless, unworthy, unloved — he wants us all to himself. He wants to steal our happiness and the joy we find in the Lord. He wants to whisper doubt and fear into our ears.
He’s not going to win. We have the power because we serve an amazing God! We will cast our fear in the fire because fear is a liar!
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7)
