The Snare

One of the verses I read this morning was Proverbs 29:25  "Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the Lord means safety."
Sometimes I get this backwards, it is easier for me to fear people and not so easy for me to trust the Lord! When this happens, I feel like I am in danger and the snare has snatched me! I heard myself think it and speak it just the other day when I told a friend that I was not going to confide in her because I was afraid of her judgement toward me. Yup, caught right up in the dangerous trap of fearing people, and totally forgetting about trusting the Lord. It's a tough place to be, and I don't exactly find it a friendly, cozy place, but I've been known to spend many hours there.
This morning as God and I discussed my dilemma and He once again reminded me of His promise to keep my heart and soul safe in Him, I poured out my confession of fears to Him.
He is the One that picks me up out of the dangerous snare, and turns my face towards Him. Even when I waver, He does not. He repeats to me the same loving things over and over again, His love never ends, He is my Safety, forever. Say That Again, Lord Jesus, trusting You means my Safety and my Rescue from all that I fear.
