I am amazed how much we like to complicate matters! In the process of complicating matters we lose track of what is really important.
One way or another, from the old to the New Testament, the Bible says multiple times “Do Not Be Afraid & Fear Not”.
It seems like the Bible says something like this 100 times or more!
When I was younger I used to say to my mother, “You only told me once!”.
My friends, we cannot focus on “how many times” God tells us to do something. We miss it when we need God to tell us over and over again (although he is patient with us and certainly does)!
In other words what is the difference between 100 times vs. 1?
