Where fear is, happiness is not. (Seneca, 1st century Roman Stoic philosopher)
A simple statement but an obvious truth. Have you ever known a fearful person that was truly happen—even for a short time? Happiness depends, at least in part, on some sense of security. Insecurity is probably the basis for a lot of fear—panic in an unknown situation or dread of an unknown future. Shun fear and embrace security and its sense of happiness.
Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe (Proverbs 29:25).
