It is as if most human beings are configured to be automatically afraid whenever there are challenges. This auto-panic device makes even some Holy Spirit filled Christians to cry out, complain and wish for a return to their former ways of life when they go through a test. In fact, when this auto-panic device is activated, it automatically uninstalls any faith application. Therefore, at this stage, anxiety, fear, worry, hopelessness, dejection etc. begin to control such a person.
The people of Israel had this application installed in their system. This made it difficult for them to trust God no matter the number of assurances given to them. So, even when God was working out a miracle for them, their natural response was to question Moses, "Why did you bring us out of Egypt?...It was far better for us to be the slaves of the Egyptians than to die in the desert."
Beloved, if you are saved, faith should be your natural response to the things you face in life. I don't know that which is causing you to panic. I don't know why you want to give up on God. I don't know the things you fear most which are pursuing you. No matter what they are, I want to encourage you with the words of Moses, "Fear not! Stand your ground, and you will see the victory the Lord will win for you today. These Egyptians whom you see today you will never see them again. The Lord Himself will fight for you; you only have to keep still." Delete any auto-panic device installed in your system and allow God to install the faith application in you today.
