All of us have the instinct of fear. It is an important emotion that keeps us safe from harmful situations like touching a hot oven or jumping from high places. Shortly put, fear is good! But there is another kind of fear which leads to unpleasant feelings, where people feel trapped in their emotions. Some get filled with so much fear, they cannot function normally. This type of fear has another name, and it is CONTROL.
Why control? The Devil likes to manipulate us through fear. He knows if we have anxiety to speak in front of people, or question ourselves if anyone loves us; he knows our insecurities about our looks or our life’s accomplishments. If you can identify something similar that has had it’s hold on your mind lately, the question to ask is NOW WHAT?
No matter how you look, how old you are, how you speak, how much time you may have wasted in your life, you need to know you are God’s masterpiece. You can overcome fear and the anxiety by surrendering to God. Allow Him to show you His purpose for your life. He can use us even in the areas that we are least comfortable. Face your fears because you have power in Christ; you have His shield of protection and His love![vc_column width=”1/2″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
