Fear Can’t Hold Me Down!

imageWe’re one week into this new year. How have your resolutions been going? Have you already given up or are you still at it strong?  Are you fighting to achieve your goal?

It’s not to late! Whatever’s been tugging at your heart, open up to it. Chase after it.

Maybe God is trying to speak into your heart but you’re afraid. Change is huge…. but what if it’s going to put you somewhere better than you are now? Wouldn’t you rather be in a better place, position, location, etc. (no matter how good of a place you’re in right now). Let’s strive for Better. It’s ok to be afraid ( I mean, we are human). But let’s not let it control and bind us. Fear cannot control our lives. If we let it, we’ll always stay the same. No chance of getting better and no chance of success.

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 

Take off the coat of fear that is weighing you down. In Isaiah 43:5 God says “Fear not, for I am with thee…. “. The Lord our God is above all. He knows what He’s doing. He’s got this thing all planned out. Everything will be great if we let God control it. Submit to Jesus. You’ll only regret NOT doing it. This is hard but it’s a necessity to life. Join me in this challenge of submitting to what is bigger than all of this.

Isaiah 43:2 

-Together we can!-

  1. Olivia, I love your faith! 1 John 4:18 talks about the fact that we need never fear that God is punishing us, no matter how difficult and painful our lives may be. So, following what we believe to be His guidance in our lives can be without fear (although things like illness, poverty, broken relationships and such can be pretty distressing. You are right in emphasizing surrender as key to overcoming fear, and I’ve tried to live my life that way. Right On!
