Lukeb12:32, Exodus 20:20, Psalm 37:13, Mark 4:40)
Fear is a strong uncontrollable unpleasant emotion caused by actual or perceived danger or threat. It is usually induced by something or someone while worry is a strong feeling of anxiety, mental agitation or distress. It is a thin stream of fear tickling through the mind.
Fear can keep you from going to where you could have won, it is faith that it won’t work out. It’s alright to have butterflies in your stomach just get them to fly in formation, it’s alright to be unsure or uncertain about life but don’t let your fears steal from you and stop you from pursuing your dreams. Feed your faith and watch your doubts starve to death.
The great Evangelist Billy Sunday said “fear knocked at my door, faith answered…… And there was no one there”. Tackle your fear with faith and there will be nothing to worry about because, worry is a route that leads from somewhere to nowhere Never let it direct your life, “it is faith in the negative, trust in the unpleasant, assurance of disaster and belief in defeat”(William ward).
Fear is a poor chisel to carve out your tomorrow. If you are looking at your future from a position of fear i assure you that view is inaccurate and distorted, it is never safe to look into the future with the eyes of fear.
The worst liars in the world are your own fears, stop being pessimistic about life embrace optimism. Stop being negative embrace positivism and know that one of the greatest discoveries you can make is to find out that you can do what you were afraid you couldn’t do.
