What God is teaching me about FEAR……
Did you know it is a fact, that 90% of the things we FEAR never even happen? 90%!!!
And of the 10% of things that do happen, God will provide us the grace to deal with them.
We can spend so much time living in FEAR of what might be, that we miss out on what is right in front of us. Our thoughts and feelings can so easily become consumed by the dreaded “what ifs”; until it’s so debilitating that we can’t think of anything else.
That is not to say that we all aren’t facing big, scary obstacles in our lives. But if we trust God, we know that He will help us deal with whatever lies ahead. FEAR holds us back, keeps us stuck right where we are.
But that is not what God wants for us. “Do Not Fear” is mentioned in the Bible 365 times. Coincidence? No way!
FEAR has too much power over my life at the moment, over my thoughts, feelings and decisions. It is robbing my present of its joy. It’s time to fight back. Because FEARING something will not prevent it from happening.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”.
Even this. Especially this.
What FEAR do you need to fight back against today?
