Fear Not — Part 2

September 11, 2023

Have you ever been confused by the fact that we are commanded to “fear not” while also being commanded to “fear God”? In this episode, Nate and Gabe give beautiful descriptions of what it means to fear God while maintaining a proper view of Who He is — a God Who loves us and cares for us, but also a God Who is righteous and holy. As we gaze upon God and know Him for Who He truly is, we are delivered from all our fears.

In a day of political correctness and pressure to conform, we need more than ever to be free from fear of man. But how? By fearing God! What we fear becomes our focus. It is our focus that determines the direction our life takes and the fruit it bears. If you see negative fruits of fear in your life, ask yourself this question, “What has my focus?” As we take the gaze of our soul and place it on Christ, we will experience freedom from the fear of man as well as the peace that comes from fearing God alone!

  • Nate Paine, Host

    Nate Paine loves pointing people to God’s Word. After giving his life to the Lord at age 11, he has carried Isaiah 61:1–3 as his life verses, following God’s call to “preach good tidings unto the meek,” “bind up the brokenhearted,” “proclaim liberty to the captives,” and offer beauty for ashes through the Person and work of Christ. Nate completed his bachelor’s degree in Biblical Ministries, has served in prison ministry, and mentored many young men through the Journey to the Heart program. Today, he lives with his wife and four children in East Texas where he serves on staff with IBLP and the Home Discipleship Network. In his spare time, you may find Nate reading his favorite authors (Andrew Murray and A.W. Tozer), perfecting his pour-over coffee brewing, or adventuring with his children—preferably with fishing poles in hand.
