(saw this years ago, but is becoming even more relevant in my life now)
"Most Christians never have the luxury of hearing God say "FEAR NOT" because they never attempt anything great enough to merit the command. If what you attempt does not scare you spitless, you are NOT in the will of God.
I charge you not to fear the wrath of man, but to fear that you never make men angry.
FEAR NOT the attack of Satan, but fear that you never make his hit list.
FEAR NOT the unknown, but fear that you never learn what is BEYOND the unknown.
FEAR NOT trials and tribulation, but fear a life of ease and complacency.
FEAR NOT the God haters, but fear God himself.
FEAR NOT that your messages are not good, but fear that your messages are not of God.
FEAR NOT what men may say about you, but fear what God would say about you.
FEAR NOT attempting something great for God and failing, fear rather attempting little things for God and succeeding.
FEAR NOT those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul, but fear HIM who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
So my prayer for you students is that you would not live a life free from fear, but you would live a life...
FEARING THE RIGHT THINGS. "
