Fear is behind you. Just like in those scary movies, the werewolf is behind you, the psycho killer is chasing after you, the alien blob is creeping up on you.
Fear positions itself behind you. Fear always hangs out in the corners. Fear is always just outside your field of vision.
It doesn't just happen in the movies. It also happens in real life. People fear that cancer is going to get them. People try to run away from past mistakes. The fear of failure lurks behind us convincing us to not try. The perception of what other people think creeps up behind us. This fear can't be seen, but it can be felt.
Fear operates from behind us, but we can change positions on fear.
-We need to face our fear. God doesn't want us to run away. He wants to see us claim the victory over what use to scare us.
-Something new will follow after us. Psalm 23 says that God's gooness and love will follow after us!
-Our fears are now in front of us, but there is someone between us and our fear. Isaiah 52:12 says the Lord will go before you and also be your rear guard. You are completely covered by God!
-Now you stand and be strong & courageous (2 Chronicles 32:7)
