Fear is so prevalent in our society today. All you have to do is turn on the TV or search the internet and you will see fear everywhere! But, did you know that fear is the devil’s way of keeping you in bondage? When we allow fear into our lives, it can birth into other nasty emotions, such as worry, stress and discouragement.
- The fear of the unknown.
- The fear of “what ifs”.
- The fear of not having enough.
- Fear of war, diseases and the economy.
We all have moments of fear or doubt. In all honesty, most people fear things that most likely will never happen to them. The problem with fear is that it can really take a grip on you. You can find yourself in such a state that you stop doing the very things you have loved to do in the past.
But, what does the Bible say about fear? Proverbs 29:25 says, “The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever leans on, trusts in, and puts his confidence in the Lord is safe and set on high.”
God is specifically telling us to lean and trust in Him because we are safe. It doesn’t take a lot of faith or constant prayer. Just tell God about the things you are fearing and let them go. The one thing we really need to understand is that God has everything under control.
So…RELAX! The battle is His and it is already WON! Just seek the Lord and let Him take care of the rest, for fear has no place in your life. Live, Love, Laugh and be Happy! Life has so much to offer – REACH OUT and GRAB IT!
