Confronting Fear

Knots in your stomach that will not go away. Sweaty palms, knocking knees, chattering teeth and pounding hearts. Yes, these are the physical signs of fear.

They often appear when we’re trying something new and stepping out in faith. Sometimes these signs, as well as the enemy’s taunting voice in your ear, seem to overwhelm and paralyze you. Is it worth it to move forward or should you shrink back into the safety of your comfort zone?

I dare you to take the risk. Step out and do something you’ve never done before. Who knows you just might enjoy it. And even if you don’t, you’ve gained an experience you otherwise would not have had and confronted the enemy of fear and given it less power. Every time you confront your fears, they diminish.

That means the next time an opportunity arises for you to step out in faith, it’s just that much easier to do so. If you really think about it, what would happen if you stepped out in faith to try something new and it didn’t work out like you planned? Would the sky fall? Would the earth tumble off its axis? No.

The roar of fear is so much louder than its reality. We give too much power to negative possibilities and not enough attention to positive probabilities. Change your focus. It has been said that the thing you focus on grows and is magnified. If you focus on your success and work diligently toward it, your success is inevitable. It’s only a matter of time before what you see in your spirit is what you’ll hold in your hand.

So stop running in fear from the possibility of failure. Instead stare your fear in the eye and dare it to try to stop you. You must remember that you have God on your side. And with the help of God you are unstoppable!

Engagement Ring: What is it that you fear? Make a list of your fears now. Next to that list, write out the ways you could overcome each fear. For example, if you are afraid of failure, list ways you can overcome it. Read Scriptures that remind you that  you are an overcomer, more than a conqueror and already a winner. Read and rehearse those Scriptures until they resonate in your spirit. It is also helpful to keep in mind that mistakes aren’t fatal, but are often the best teaching tools for future success.
