VERSE-O-RAMA Day 6

It’s VERSE-0-RAMA 2017 here on GUWG, where peeps from all over the world are sharing their absolute all-time favorite Bible verses.

Today we’re featuring an awesome pair of OT verses tweeted out into the Twitterverse that focus on a similar theme. The first was from @montgomery1807:

NO WORRIES WEEK

We conclude NO WORRIES WEEK here on GUWG with a smorgasbord of anti-anxiety verses from all over the Bible.

We’ll start today with the Old Testament and then finish up tomorrow with the New Testament. Relaaaaax, take a deeeeep breath and pray through each precious word.

Here’s today’s anti-anxiety selection:

Wisdom Week

It’s WISDOM WEEK here on GUWG, where all week long we’ll be probing the practical principles of Proverbs.

Here’s our first selection:

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. (Proverbs 9:10)

I like The Expanded Bible’s take on this verse:

Wisdom begins with respect [fear; awe] for the Lord.

Apparently not. There are now more than 500 documented phobias in the world. There’s arachibutyrophobia (fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth), autophobia (fear of yourself), catabedephobia (fear of both high and low places), chorophobia (fear of dancing), coulrophobia (fear of clowns), homilophobia (fear of sermons), myxophobia (fear of slime) and panophobia (fear of everything). There’s even phobefobia (fear of phobias).

Jesus on Fear

We’re in the midst of a series entitled JESUS ON EVERYTHING, where we’re looking at what Jesus said on a wide variety of subjects with a minimum of commentary from me.

Today’s topic? FEAR. Jesus made it pretty simple …

Fear Nothing In This World

GUWG-FearWe continue our journey through every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

We’re attempting to answer the question What exactly are Christians supposed to do? by looking at 50 commands straight from the mouth of Jesus.

There’s even phobefobia (fear of phobias).

What’s the antidote to all this worldly fear, fretting and freaking out? Here’s what Jesus said:
