Proverbs 1:33 (KJV); But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
There are people in this world who live in a perpetual state of fear. They fear that they will lose their jobs, suffer from terminal illnesses, get into accidents or that they will lose their loved ones. They live with fear each waking moment of their lives.
You may even ask them why they are afraid these things will happen to them but they will have no logical explanation.
Our theme scripture tells us the real reason why people live in fear.
People are afraid because they have not learnt to hear the voice of God. The more you hear the Lord, the less you will fear.
If you hear God about the state of your ministry, it does not matter how much persecution may come against you, you can never fear that the haters could win.
If you hear God about your career, you can never fear job loss because He who spoke to you is already in your future and has arranged all things in your favour.
If you ever find yourself in fear, purpose to hear God because His voice assures us of quietness from the fear of evil.

GOLDEN NUGGET: People are afraid because they have not learnt to hear the voice of God. The more you hear the Lord, the less you will fear.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You because I have not been given a spirit of fear but of love, boldness and a sound mind. I hear You about every thing concerning my life and because I do, circumstances can never shake me, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
