Who remembers the No Fear advertising commercials? These ads reminded you not to be afraid. My favorite one said “Second place is the first loser”. Something about that touched me because 20 years later it still resonates in my mind and heart. No Fear!
When I find myself afraid I have to talk myself down because life is scary. Out of nowhere came a fear of bridges and overpasses. I had no desire to
drive, I was 30 years old before really started driving. People hear that and ask, did you get over your fear? Nope, but it’s something I have to do, some days I’m crying and shaking but I keep going. NO FEAR!
The Spirit God gave us does not make us afraid. His Spirit is a source of power and love and self-control. (2 Timothy 1:7 ERV)
Lord, you have given me your shield to protect me. It is your help that has made me great. (2 Samuel 22:36 ERV)
I remind myself in the middle of my fear what GOD SAID. The enemy will try and tell you how bad something is, how your situation is dire and can’t be saved. Lie lie lie that’s what he does. For nothing is impossible with God. ” (Luke 1:37 NLT) boom, killed it, the lie is revealed. There is nothing too hard for God.
Whatever your fear is, give it to God!
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6, 7 NKJV)
