When Fear Runs Wild
Jeroboam was the first King of the Northern Kingdom, that was the kingdom of ten tribes that rejected Solomon’s son and formed their own nation. God gave Jeroboam tremendous promises of a great reign IF he would obey God. But Jeroboam got scared, took matters into his own hands, and became the worst king ever. He forfeited all the wonderful because allowed fear to run wild in his heart. How about you? Have you let fear keep you from obeying God? Don’t be like King Jeroboam who was such a bust. Be like King David and trust God, regardless of the circumstances. The Lord really “is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think.” Now that’s real hope.
