Even knowing God is in control, and behind every thing I feel him calling me to do.

OK. I am not saying that I no longer have feelings of inner fear at times, I am human after all and very aware of my sin nature. But in one fo these moments of great doubt, HE gave me the answer (on a fridge magnet in a gift shop of all things) the phrase on it reads:-

“The Will of God will never lead you where the Grace of God cannot keep you”.

The simple truth in this statement hit hard. I can truthfully say that I have never had the same degree of fear since this. Yes I sometimes say “Are you really wanting me to do this Lord?” in a worried tone. But that phrase comes back to me, and I am at peace.
