MORNINGTIME 2805
 
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. YE CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MAmmoN. Therefore I say unto you, TAKE NO THOUGHT FOR YOUR LIFE, what ye shall eat, OR what ye shall drink; nor yet FOR YOUR BODY, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Matthew 6:24-25. Let's look at these verses through the eyes of Fear. When you fear something you will be on the lookout for it, checking to see if maybe it's just around the corner waiting to get you. Your attention will be wondering when this thing you fear will show up next. Your focus will be fully on this thing you fear when you do see it. For example, we are taught to "Drive Defensively" when going somewhere in the car. Be aware of your surroundings and be careful. But to FEAR driving in the car means EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE may be trying "to get you", to wreck your car, to even try to kill you. The root is, "Satan's behind it all and he wants to kill me". "There is no fear in love; BUT PERFECT LOVE CASTETH OUT FEAR: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love". 1 John 4:18. Yes, the Lord gave us common sense and a healthy RESPECT for things, but not to "fear" them. For example, you are to have a Healthy Respect for electricity and use it safely by "playing in the rules". It's a part of everyday life. But to FEAR electricity will have your mind focused on, and wondering when, it will try to "get you". If you really want to "Fear" anything, than Fear The Lord. "But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear Him, which after He hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear Him". Luke 12:5. "Fear" here is, "to reverence, venerate, to treat with deference or REVERENTIAL OBEDIENCE". The Lord LOVES you, He died for you that you may Live. He is your Master, Saviour, your EVERYTHING. In Him, THERE IS NO (worldly) FEAR! Love the Lord, and, Be Blessed.
