Irrational Fear of Trusting God

trust god

“[Satan has deceived may into believing that if we trust God our lives will be miserable.] What are you afraid of? Of following too much goodness, finding a too-loving God; of being drawn by an attraction which is stronger than self or the charms of this poor world?  what are you afraid of? Of becoming too humble, too detached, too pure, too true, too reasonable, too grateful to your Father which is in heaven?…I pray you, be afraid of nothing so much as of this false fear – this foolish, worldly wisdom which hesitates between God and self, between vice and virtue, between gratitude and ingratitude, between life and death.”
-Francois Fenelon
