"Attacking Our fears With The Word Of God"
"Attacking Our Fears with The Word Of God"
As a young child we grow up with all kinds imaginative fears, and if we don't destroy fears hold on us; it will literary control our lives. There at least fifty verses on fear in the bible, but one of my favorite verses to us is there's nothing to fear but fear itself. Fear is a small, four letter word that has a gigantic hold on the people of this world. Fear is an anxiety or a dread that lurks in the back ground of our minds, and it holds us at bay. Sometimes, when we attempt to achieve a goal or get ourselves back on the right tracks of life, fears is the catalyst that keep us from progressing forward.
Fear is an invisible monster that we all invent at one time or another, that frighten us so bad that we don't have the courage to move. Matthews 10 -28: Says and fear not them which kills the body, but not able to kill the soul, but rather, fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell; this scripture here, tell us, if it's not, God then we have nothing to fear and we are safe from every other kind of fear there is. Most of our fears are 98% unfounded most of the times. Our fears hang over our heads like the sword of Damoclees, just waiting to fall on us and put us out of our misery.
We all should first pray about the fears that is destroying our lives, then attack it with Brute force because it's an adversary that keeps us running and cringing in the dark. Psalms 23-4: says, Yea though I walk through the valley of death, I will fear no evil; for thou are with me, thou rod thou staff they comfort me. This a great verse to be reminded of, there is nothing to fear because Gods is with us even though we don't see him; he's there through it all. Just remember when we are in the jaws of fear, don't just stand there and take it, pick up your King James version of the bible and find the scriptures on fear and do some meditating on the his words and cancel out the fear that haunting you and controlling your life.
Once we understand that fear is a destroyer, an antagonizer, a determent, a procrastinator, a hindrance, a negative, a stumbling block, and a illusion of our mind, then we will understand that fear is only what we allow it to be in our minds and nothing else. It will disappear as soon as we dismiss it form out thoughts. We will learn how to control it and once and for all, destroy it by the almighty word of God; all we have to remember and repeat, is "Fear no evil, for I am with you."
