Are you going to run from your fears or start facing your giants of fear head on? Don’t let fear intimidate you! Face your fears and rise above them! “God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of love, power and a sound mind!” Running from fears you need to face disrupts the soundness of your mind and keeps you from being creative and inventive! Don’t be robbed of your gifts and the adventures God has put before you by being fearful!
When you face a fear, it usually disappears anyway! Most of them are just like the proverbial “monsters in the closet” when you were young. When you face your fears and expose them to the light of God they disintegrate, vanish, disappear! Why? Because most of what we fear is not part of our reality nor will it ever happen to us! God has our back on those fears that are realities regardless!
Fear tells you that you can’t face your giants. Faith commands you to rise up in God’s spirit of authority and command the giants to back down! Who is being backed in the corner, you or your fears? If it is you, don’t be debilitated, rise up in the name of Jesus and stand your ground! Jesus paid the price for your freedom from fear! The only fear you are suppose to have is a holy fear/reverence of God and His holiness! Fear will destroy you if you let it linger too long! Send it on it’s way by facing it in Jesus’ name!
So what fears are you facing today? Confess them to God and then confess them to someone you trust. Then begin to face them one by one as God gives you the courage and the strength to do so! You’ve been intimidated too long by those fears. Face it, it is time for you to take back your power and face your fears in the light of God’s extraordinary love for you! You may not think you have the power to do so, but God’s strength is made perfect in your weakness! Together, you and God can face anything!
New Living Translation (NLT)
15 So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children.[a] Now we call him, “Abba, Father.”
