Proverbs 29:25

The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.


A snare is “a thing likely to lure or tempt someone into harm or error.” For example, “the wickedness and snares of the Devil.” Or in other words a pitfall, trick, trap, web, or danger.

The fear and anxiety that we experience are not of the great God we serve. Many times our anxieties are imaginations that we think up to ourselves. We fester on them and eventually begin to believe them.

This is a snare. It’s a trap orchestrated by Satan. He doesn’t want us to trust God. He definitely wants us to believe that we are all alone. The enemy desires for us to be webbed into bondage by the thoughts and things that we are fearful of.

Have you ever thought of your anxieties this way?

Anxiety is not a God thing. It’s a tool to disable us from fulfilling God’s will for our lives.

Take Moses for instance. He was fearful of a speech difficulty that he struggled with. He actually didn’t believe he could effectively travel into Egypt and command Pharaoh to let the Lord’s people go.

Exodus 4:10

But Moses said to the Lord , “Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.”

Many times like Moses, all of us allow our shortcomings to disable us into fear.

But Proverbs 29:25 says, “whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.”

Do you believe that today? God’s Word is true and never lies.

The next time you are fearful or overcome by anxiety, remember this promise of God. We don’t always know how He does it, but God protects His children. He is graceful, merciful, and kind in heart.

We can trust Him over any anxiety.

I encourage you to break free of your anxiety trap today. Go forth and persevere in the things God has called you specifically to do.

Be not afraid and remember that God remembers us in our fear. We can be reminded by that in scripture when we read that Aaron was sent with Moses to be his spokesman.

Exodus 7:1

And the Lord said to Moses, “See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron shall be your prophet.

God is always for you and will not forget you. He is your safety.

Pray this week:

Dear Lord,

Please help me to overcome my fears and anxieties. Please correct my way of thinking and remind me that you are my safe place. Build my trust in you and my resistance to any snare.

In Jesus’ Mighty Name,
