Read: Isaiah 41:10
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
The most common thing that holds people back from moving forward and achieving their dreams is fear. Ask anyone who is hesitant about something, and you’ll find that fear has something to do with it in some way or another. We are no strangers to fear.
We are all created by God to be progressive beings. But life can come to a full stop when we allow fear to take over. The reality is, fear will always come our way to try to stop us in our tracks. Yet we have all been given a destiny, a purpose, and a mission from God which we are called to live out. At the same time, God has provided us with His eternal word and the Holy Spirit to guide and strengthen us when fear tries to get in our way. It is up to us to make the choice which side we are going to be on: fear or faith.
Do you struggle with fear? Turn to God: He’s always there and will be there for us forever. Instead of giving in to fear, let us choose to place our faith in Jesus.
