During my daily conversation with people, there is always someone who is overwhelmed by fear. People are afraid or anxious about something (which is generalized fear). Maybe you fear what people think of you, not having enough money and so much more.
We all long for more of God’s peace in the midst of the stresses of our lives.
“I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. John 14:27 (NLT)
What is it about this four letter word called FEAR, that causes so many of us to miss our purpose and abort our destiny?
I want to encourage you by saying FEAR NOT!
Some of you are afraid of failing, but there is no success without failure. Jesus said to his disciples, Fear not.
2 Timothy 1:7 Says “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
Most of you allow fear to kill your dreams and visions. Fear can stop you from moving forward.
Fear of failing in your marriage
Fear of success
Fear of failure
Fear of not fitting in
Fear of been laughed at for trying
Fear of making the next BIG decision in your life
Fear of low self-esteem
Fear of taking a chance
Fear of falling in love again
Fear of being different
Fear of not finding true love
Fear of dying
All these points are real concerns many people have.
Interestingly, most of the things we fear in life, people are overcoming them by taking action over fear and accomplishing their goals.
These people are not smarter than you. They are not better than you; they are not more intelligent than you. They have hangups and issues just like you. However, they decided to face their fear and do anyway.
WHAT SEPARATE THEM FROM YOU?
They made a decision not to allow fear to stop them from moving forward. This is the time to follow God’s plan for your life. You are an overcomer and a winner.
THE ONLY THING TO FEAR IS FEAR ITS SELF.
Face your fear and do it anyway! When you step out on faith and face that which you fear, then fear does not exist anymore.
You will succeed in your marriage. You will become a better person, a better father, a better husband, a better wife, a better Mother, a better business owner, a better Christian, and a better friend.
The Apostle Paul admonished us that God has not given us the spirit of fear.
Allow the spirit of Christ to Lead you.
