fear- it lives.
For each of us, It has a different face, a different name. It is darkness, it creeps up on us. IT TIES US UP WITH ROPES & BEFORE WE KNOW IT, IT STARTS TO DICTATE OUR DECISIONS.
IT LAUGHS IN THE FACE OF OUR DREAMS.
IT DIMS THE LIGHT OF OUR FUTURE.
It lives, it is real, & how much power it has in our lives is determined by how much power we give it. We are not are not meant to live captive to this fear-there is hope. You see, we captives, we have already been set free, adopted as sons & daughters, washed & purified by the blood of Jesus. God intended us to live fully in freedom, but if we are not careful- captives are exactly what we become. We simply cannot afford to allow fear to cripple us, to keep us sitting, to keep us stationary, to keep us captive. All God is wanting is for us to run to Him & fear hinders that.
IN ORDER TO OVERCOME FEAR: WE MUST RISK.
Lately, more & more, I feel God beckoning me: to stand in the face of my fears, to face them head on, to run towards Him with all I have & all I am, risking it all, holding nothing back. When we face our fears there will be uncertainty, but I can promise you, you can be certain about this one thing: God is faithful.
FAITHFUL: LOYAL, CONSTANT, STEADFAST.
God's perspective is bigger than ours. He sees you, He knows your heart. Outside of time & unhindered by circumstances-He works for your good. Fear in itself is not wrong, but letting it constrain you, letting it chain & contain you-that is wrong. In the end it is really not about the fear itself-it is about who you are facing the fear with.
ARE YOU WILLING TO RISK FOR MORE OR ARE YOU CONTENT WITH STAYING TIED UP?
OH MY DEAR,
DO NOT FEAR. FOR GOD HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD.
