Do you have a barrier of fear? I’ve had plenty this past year. Here’s what I’ve learned. God wants me out of my comfort zone, so that I walk and talk with Him, cling to Him, and know that everything comes from Him. He’s brought several situations to me this past year that are way, way, way out of my comfort zone. Yet I’ve learned when I’m afraid, it’s the direction I need to go because the Evil One is trying desperately to turn me back so I’ll run the other way. Fear does not come from God. So when I’m facing something that causes my heart to pound, my hands to sweat, my mind to race, I take comfort knowing God is in control and that I’m going in the direction He wants. And I cling to Him to get me through the situation.
Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. “hilippians 1:6
But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one. II Thessalonians 3:3
The Lord is my light and my salvation — whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life — of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
So what are you afraid of?
