That Horrifying Four Letter Word…
We all have come face to face with this horrifying four-letter word, F-E-A-R. It doesn’t matter if you are a billionaire, poor, Einstein, or an average learner, fear does not discriminate! Fear can block you from reaching your full potential and steal your destiny.
Many, including myself; have passed up various opportunities because of FEAR. Fear of failure, the unknown, or fear of what people might say or think. Sometimes fear even sneaks up on us, and we don’t realize that we are walking in fear until we stop to analyze the situation. Fear lies to us…It tells us that we are not qualified; we can’t start that business or that ministry; we can’t get that degree; we can’t win that championship; we can’t start over or get that dream job! ENOUGH is ENOUGH!! Tell fear, to step back and allow God’s promises to lead you.
I have read where Scientists, like Dr. Caroline Leaf, are now addressing the fact that we weren’t born with fear, it is a learnt trait. In other words, it’s something we picked up along the way, which we allow to control our lives. So when God’s word said, that He has NOT given us a “Spirit of Fear, but love, power, and a sound mind” (2 Timothy1:7)—we better believe it. We DO NOT have to accept, believe, or agree with fear—we have the right and the power to reject the Spirit of Fear!
Our Creator wants to see us living a life with no limitations. As a loving Father, He has given us, “…all things that pertain unto life and godliness.” (2 Peter 3-4) and we “…can do all things through Christ” who has already empowered us with the ability to do all that is set before us. (Philippians 4:13). He said, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed,” for He is with us wherever we go. (Joshua 1:9) He also said to, “Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will act.” (Ps. 37:4-5). I don’t know about you, but it sounds like if we trust and believe Him, we WILL be successful; because as a loving Father, He wants more for us than we want for ourselves.
The Father wants to give us exceeding and abundantly above all that we could ask or think. Not only that, He has surrounded us with His favor as a shield and His goodness, and His mercy, chases us down. So, let’s look with expectancy for His goodness, His mercy, and His favor—they are always around. No longer will we allow fear to lie to us and rob us of our destiny! We will NOW accept God’s Love and trust him. We will allow His truths and promises to lead and shine through us; because we believe that the Father wants more for us than we want for ourselves… Amen?
