The more our words the less is the meaning and how do these profits anyone? Ecclesiastes 6:11. Jesus did not condemn Peter but came to heal him of his guilt and fear of man by only questioning him whether his love for Him is more than his vocation John 21: 15-17. He considered him as being stumbled and overpowered by fear of the outcome.
Fear and guilt are carnal nature that Satan used as his most psychological weapons to paralyze our potential in God. It’s only faith in God in all circumstances that can deliver us from fear and guilt. Without faith, it is impossible to please God. Hebrews 11:6. When faith dwells in us, fear must leave us. God be praised.
Prayer: O Lord God, make me an instrument not to fear when storms hit me but an instrument of faith to trust You in all circumstances.
