Tell Fear To Move

Updated on March 15, 2011

Stop Fearing Fear

 Fear is a small four-lettered word that is known in every nation, tongue and generation. It has caused wars, hate, wrong thinking, ushered in evil, crushed dreams and passed over a lot of great opportunities in all areas of life. Not all fear is bad, sometimes it's healthy. When I say healthy I mean: fear of unsafe places, a hostile atmosphere that could turn dangerous or, real and present danger. In these situations fear is good because it tells your conscience that you need to flee the area in which you are in. It will make you run away from dire circumstances or prevent them from happening by exercising your sound and safe mind that God gave you. In this aspect fear is good. Another example of healthy fear is the fear of the Lord. The bible says in Proverbs 9:10- "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding." This means that reverence, being in awe of, keeping his statuates, not incurring his wrath, being in his will, understanding who he is and why he came, accepting his plan of salvation and the like is wise and the beginning of soul saving knowledge. Unhealthy fear that we should tell to move is whatever holds you back from realizing your potential and causing you to be afraid of the future. Some people go a life time living in unhappiness because they are too afraid of what people might think of them. They fear not being as good as someone else or that no one will want to hear what they have to say, in other words they feel unimportant. This way of living can cause a person to miss out on their entire life and all that it could have been. Building a heritage for your family and loved ones, living life more abundantly and enjoying the fruit of your labor, being prosperous and having good success and health are the very things that God wants us to have. If you notice one of the words inside of the word fear is ear. What you allow yourself to hear and believe can change what you see and think about yourself and life and general! Don't let negative words permeate your ear space and recline in your head space. Don't let sour images dictate to you what you see everytime you open your eyes. Hear what God has to say about your life and who you are in him! The bible says in Romans 8:15- "For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out Abba, Father!"  Also Romans 8:37-39- Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither life nor death, nor angels nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present nor things to come. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." This means that we don't have to fear the future, we don't have to fear unseen or seen danger( I mean things out of your control, not walking into danger just because, without the Holy Spirit's unction or presence.) We don't have to sit and concentrate on death, accidents, sickness or, calamity that might come our way because if God is for us who can be against us! Of course things will show up in our lives that we don't understand or can't comprehend. We won't always know why or how but what we can always rest on and trust in is God's word! In closing I would like to leave you with these scriptures to combat and overtake fear: Put on the whole armor of God. Ephesians 6: 10-13. Which says, "Finally brethern, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God to withstand in the evil day and having done all, to stand!" To see what the armor is go to Ephesians 14-18! Finally be vigilant, be sober, be obedient,etc. These things keep fear from entering in univited. Fear lives in unrighteousness. Don't forget that you can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens you so, tell that mountain to move and stop fearing fear, you can do it!!!

      "Tell Fear to move" is an excellent hub.

      It is not every fear that is to be avoided. Fear of God is the most precious fear which makes a man conscious of the fact that he is created by the Creator and accountable to Him, Here and in the Hereafter. It is this thing that a man is called responsible. Man is to man himself on this earth, restraining himself while using his faculties in the administration of all his affairs. Liberty and Option are neither unbridled nor whimsical nor capricious. Dignity of mankind is to be maintained by respecting human rights at all costs. The reason is that man himself is included in the mankind. His self control or self restraint brings ultimate credit to himself as well. Society is contributing by mutual cooperation in almost all fields as all affairs are joined in a complex manner. Wrods like economical, social, democrtic are not mere show those have their significance and value. The more a human being is aware of himself and his Creator the more he is a man of knowledge and also man of character. Those who use fraudulent means or play cheating on others forget that the victims are fellow human beings. Peace and Order in the society comes by mutual respect and paying the rights duly and fully and aslo on time. Disability may occur and must be given due regard to extend time limit as this world is full of odds and a little slip or fallacy may cause much hazard to recover. Knowledge is light and helps reach the goal which is to become a true human being. Fear is a natural phenomenon kept within every human being Its proper observance makes a man bold. Every thing has a positive and negative aspect. Fear is no exception to it. Fear which is unnatural, unreal, superstitious, inconsistent, contradictory, hypocritical and with malafide intention or against reason is to be avoided.

      Why a person is punctual? Whe he stands in queu? Why he pays the price of a thing purchased? are all for the fear that he or she is not taken as dishonest. It means there is self-judgment, judgment by the society and also a final judgment on the Day of Judgment. Those who behave well in this world gain friendship of their Lord and there shall be no fear for them nor shall they grieve in the final accountability. To take care of oneself of all the odds to come is not against reason and intellect. The faculties of hearing, seeing and feelings that inspire in human heart are all to be questioned as to how were those used or utilized.This lifespan on the earth is transitory and all have to leave it on their turn. To avail the lifetime fearing the accountability and hoping for His Mercy is the best way to improve human behaviour.Mutual consultation in all affairs is the soul of democratic process and rule of law. This too is due to the reason that no one among mankind should consider himself an All Wise person. All Wise is the Creator of All including the wisdom and intellect. Chances of error are always there, mutual consultation reduces them. What ever faculty is kept in a human being it has its usefulness. It is man who abuses, misuses or non uses it. Man must prove himself a peace maker and n ot a mischief monger, truthful and not a liar, honest and not a dishonest in words or conduct, straighrtforward and not hypocrat. It is the good behaviour which when balanced brings a balance in the society. Every element of bad behaviour causes imbalance how small it may be.

      May God Almighty, All Merciful bless us all.
