No Fear

why did the chicken cross the fear no evil

    Do you walk with confidence because the Lord is your Shepherd?  or... Do you walk around oblivious to the dangers around you relying on your own strength?  The former is much better and peaceful than the latter.
    This chicken, often like us, doesn't appreciate how death will come like a thief in the night and we must be prepared.  We just strut around living a life centered on our little coop.  Our feathers get ruffled when we end up in the valleys but do we praise our Protector?
    'Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.' Psalm 23;6
    If your trust comes from the Lord, your paths will be on the right direction.  If your trust is in yourself or your works, you will forever fall short.  We are saved by grace, not by works.
