Fear HE IS a liar.
This sentence contains the biggest truth that can be applied to each of us amazing humans.
Fear can literally stop you from reaching your full potential, achieving goals, and cultivating relationships with others. This is why fear needs to be talked about (and be completely eliminated from our lives).
But now thus says the LORD, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.
Think of instances where fear has stopped you.
I know when I think of some instances I feel less of myself for not going after what I wanted at the time all because of this thought in my head called fear.
BUT I want you to know you can break down that barrier to be completely fearless in your life. Fear does not have to always win when you have God by your side all the time.
6 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear.
What can man do to me?
You stopping yourself from achieving things comes down to YOU at the end of the day. The people around us should not in ANY WAY stop us from ANYTHING. We are all imperfect, so why should it matter what another thinks when OUR GOD believes in us 100% for the rest of our lives here and beyond?
What others think should not let fear take over and what you think should not let fear take over… because GOD OVERRIDES all of that. He overrides the fear and tells you we are HIS. We have been created fearless through Him.
2 Timothy 1:7
7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
