This World is full of fear! The politics, the wars, the racial tension, the school systems ..you name it, it is probably scary! Trust me..I get this so well I have dealt with some pretty irrational fear for the majority of my life and let me just say it is the worst! The worst part about it is it is not the way we were created to live in fact it is quite the opposite! We were created to live in peace. That is not to say we deny the present fears that lurk but it is a warning to acknowledge them and then lay them at the feet of Jesus. The reality is friends fear will always exist in this world because it is the enemies tactic, it slows us down and gets us isolated and alone. As a believer, we are called to live with others and we are called to walk in faith and not fear! So how do we deal with it then if this world is full of it?! I discuss here in this video what I believe the Lord is teaching me as I too walk through bouts of fear myself! Join me..and trust me you are not alone! (VIDEO LINK BELOW)
Scripture in this video:
2 Timothy 1:7
7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
1 John 4:18
18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
