The Bible is full of verses that tell us to NOT be afraid, to NOT fear anything and to trust in God. But… there is 1 verse, the only verse in the entire bible that tells us that there is something that we should fear.

Have a look for yourself, throughout the entire bible God always says “Fear not for I am…”. Except in Hebrews 4:

Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. 2 For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them,[a] not being mixed with faith in those who heard it. 3 For we who have believed do enter that rest… – Heb 4

The only thing we should fear is that we move out of a place of rest. That we are no longer situated in the place of rest God promised and gave to us.
I found this to be a great revelation! Rest has been one of the main topics I’ve focussed on during the last 2 months or so. When we are resting, we are progressing. Resting means we allow God to do His thing. It does not mean passivity. But rather a peace of mind.. like a river stream… peaceful, resting. Once we move out of this place, we normally tend to stress, worry, labour, etc. It is THEN when the devil can grab hold of our situation. If we are in a complete state of rest, we are untouchable!
