Fear is NOT Normal!

Comical looking turtle, but a serious subject matter.
Our church is doing a “Sharing Your Faith” type of focus at the moment. That’s not my beef. We, as Christ followers are to share our faith.
We have handouts with blanks to fill in. The very first one totally turned me off for the rest of the sermon.
*”Understand that fear is normal.”
I (nor my family) do not subscribe to that statement. Why does God’s Word continually say “Fear Not” if fear is a normal part of life?
If fear is normal, why do we try to overcome our fear?
Does fear creep in? Yes. It does though because the guard is let down and the Word has departed from our remembrance. That is then the time to recommit to remembering what God’s Word says about fear and cast it out.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

Psalm 27:1-14
