flight or fight
Thoughts collide with reality in the playing field that is our mind, and we are thrust into the arena of confusion. Do we fight as the gladiators did or do we simply accept our fate whatever it may be? Do our minds relax into oblivion or do they sharpen and make us ready for the fight?
Fear induces the fight or flight response in each of us. Which path we take is determined on the state of our mind, and the severity of the threat at the time of the incident. Know yourself and your reactions, learn from the past in preparation for the future. Ask for guidance from God the Father, for he knows what we should do as well as what we will do.
What we should do is totally in opposition to the reality of what we do. We often turn and run when we should stand our ground and stand up for what we believe. Often when you stand your ground there is no need to fight. When we learn to trust God we begin to control the fight or flight response.
When Walking with God, fear should not be a part of our vocabulary. Yet all to often it is. Put your trust in God and to know that He is always there to protect and watch over you. With God in you life that should be no place for fear.
