Unnecessary Timidity

"Why are you so timid?" He asked; "have you still no faith?"
-Mark 4:40, WNT

Why, indeed, are we so timid? The world boldly rushes ahead having no foundation, no support, no Rearguard, no Shield, no Defender, no Rock, no Fortress. We have all of that and more, and yet we hang back. Have we forgotten Whom we serve? Have we become so used to breaking bread with Him that we've forgotten He made and controls the entire universe? If the almighty, eternal God says, "Go!", what could there possibly be in all the universe that could stop us—aside from our lack of faith? No wonder God grieves as He does over unbelief! "Lord, I believe; help Thou mine unbelief."
