“Fear of the Lord is Good. Fear of other things, not so much.”~TB
Growth over Comfort
There are practical fears and then fears that are so debilitating that they stop you in your tracks. Most common fears come from trying to control something that is out of your grasp. Friends, in any given situation, do what you can do, and let God handle the rest. Those times will probably call for you to step out in faith which is uncomfortable. Choose growth over comfort, as God is showing you how to rely on Him.
In His Hands
When you read the Bible, you will know that all things come from God and nothing is out of His domain. So, if that is the truth, why should any of us be afraid? If God has given you a task, be quick to finish so that your fears won’t hinder your movements. Fear is such a great tool for the enemy because it cripples the mind with minimal effort. Don’t let a virus in the mind corrupt the life that God has for you. Reconcile your fears and know that God is in control.
Are you at the wheel or is fear driving your vessel?
