When fear grips our very soul, we are most susceptible to taking things into our own hands (manipulation, control, demanding attitude, etc). Why is that? Perhaps we believe that when we control others and/or things, we have gained some sense of control over the uncontrollable. But the best solution to fear is trust, and it is somewhat counterintuitive. Trust is scary because it involves letting go and forces us to fight against our natural tendency. But faith reminds us we have One who will never leave us or forsake us. Trust is thus backed by the highest guarantee.
