While David was at Horesh in the Desert of Ziph, he learned that Saul had come out to take his life.
David had every right to be afraid. He had Saul on the way to kill him. Talk about a scary situation! The king of the nation had lots of resources available to go after him and kill him. And Saul was using them. He was on his way to take David’s life.
David had every right to be afraid in this situation. It’s difficult to not give in to fear when it feels like the thing you’re afraid of is very big and powerful.
That’s the thing about fear, it always seems big!
Fear Feels Big
The thing about fear in our lives is that it always feels big. When we’re faced with a scary situation, it often feels much bigger than us.
So when you’re faced with fear, realize that even though it often appears bigger than you, you’re not alone to deal with it. God is there He’s for you, and with His help, you can face anything that you fear.
Fear is defeated when you realize that even though it seems big, God is bigger and you can conquer it with Him!
