What a paradox this is! Most of us will normally run from the thing we fear or hide. However the truth is that fear needs to be faced to be conquered. What I feared most came to bite me is a common saying. We attract to ourselves what we fear most. Many are caught up in this fear triangle and get triangulated. We can fear in the inside, outside and upside. They all conspire to paralyse us to inaction. Fear has the power to kill you. Therefore what ever fear your is, now is the time to confront it. Whether it is fear of sickness, relationship breakup, accidents, heights, closed places, confront your fear and be set free.
Fear Is A Perception
Fear is based on not knowing. The fear of the unknown is mostly due to wrong information or lack of correct knowledge. Fear is an illusion and mainly a perception. You perceive danger and therefore your natural response is to go into a defensive mode of operation. However our defensive position could be reinforcing our fear. If we fear a dog will bite us than we will freeze with fear. However if we decide to confront the dog than the dog will sense this and move away. Use this illustration to confront all your fears. Either the dog gets you or you get the dog. So many people are trapped in a state of fear. Fear of catching COVID is the most recent terror plaguing the world.
Jesus came not to give us a spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind. He is our deliverer from all fear. Perfect love casts out all fear. He is our hiding place and in Him we can face any fear inside and outside. Whatever your fear is first acknowledge this and than confront it. Your fear will change to be your strength. This is the transformation that God will do in you as you surrender your fears to Him. His love will so embrace you that all fear will leave you. What appeared to be your weakness will become your strength. Today be fear free and faith filled.
