Living in Fear
How many times has fear kept you away from achieving something or making the wrong choices? Fear is designed to keep you from progressing in life and we often find ourselves controlled by our fear. Rather it be fear of rejection, loneliness, accepting new changes or taking a leadership role. Whatever fear you possess, it does not allow you to move forward in life. In 2 Timothy 1:7 it says, "For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control." He gave us all these attributes so that we can conquer all fear that controls our life. Living in fear is like living in a closed box where your voice can never be heard, and make you miss out on your opportunities in life. Either way living in fear can be a daily battle for some of us, but it's something that we must overcome to go to our next level in life. Each day we have to gradually break out of our fear with courage. Take a step further than what you've done last time, but only this time trust in the Lord and he will take your fears away.
