How To Be Free January: Fear
Freedom in Christ helps us to overcome literally everything that hinders us from reaching our God-given potential.
God so patiently and carefully leads us all into new territory.
With every baby step we take on the unfamiliar path… FEAR is there to greet us.
Although fear is intimating, it has no power in the presence of our mighty God.
God holds our trembling heart near to Him as He reminds of His promise…
“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear…” – 1 John 4:18
Fear tempts us to quit… God’s love makes us brave to persevere.
Fear makes us insecure… God’s love anchors us in our true identity.
Fear creates problems in our relationships… God’s love teaches us how to maintain healthy relationships.
Fear threatens to steal our joy… God’s love touches to the depth of our heart to spring up a well of genuine happiness.
Fear looms at night with unsettling thoughts, keeping us from the rest we need… God’s love guards our mind with peace and blissful sleep.
Fear will try to find a way to keep us all from the fulfilled life that God promised… But God’s unfailing love is always so much bigger than any fear we might encounter.
God’s courage calls to us to dig deep, with faith beyond the angst we feel, to a place where we can dare to believe in victory over it.
What lies ahead of us on the other side of the fears that hold us captive?
LIFE… A life filled with God’s freedom!
This week, no matter how fear might try to hold you back – remember that your God loves you and BE BRAVE.
