Fear is not your friend. It plays the role of antagonist in the story of your life. Fear is a silent killer. It is a lethal injection that cripples and paralyzes you from making decisions. From taking advantage of life-changing opportunities. From living out your God-created identity. The peculiar thing about fear is that it is a matter of perception, not truth. Everyone is not afraid of the same things. What are your fears? The fear of failure? Fear of loss? Fear of hurt? Whatever your fear is, it must be cast out in order to achieve success in life. With The Jesus Mind, you are empowered to overcome even your greatest fears.
Jesus Mind Principle #5: Face Your Fears
- Focus on the solution, not the problems. Don’t focus on how it can’t be done, focus on Jesus. He’s the one who gives the faith to overcome. Faith comes from hearing the Word of God. (Romans 10:17)
- Become consumed by goals. See what’s more valuable to you and live for it. Jesus had a “joy set before Him”. His goals birthed within Him a passion and love to cast out all fear.
- Because fear is perceived, the only way to overcome it is by actually facing it! You can’t hide from it, ask someone to face it for you or even pray it away. You have to challenge it. When you realized there was no monster under the bed, you lost the fear of the dark. Most times, fear is simply displaced with knowledge. What you know about, you’re no longer afraid of.
- Get around other faith walkers. Faith is contagious…and so is fear.
The difference between the successful and unsuccessful, the rich and the poor is how they deal with fear and failure. “Everything that you want is on the other side of fear.”-Jack Canfield Face your fears today! Go where you haven’t gone before. Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. Be bold, the Lord is with you!
