Reading Time: 3 Minutes

Do you feel like fear is controlling your life?

Fear doesn’t help you; it hinders you. Fear doesn’t get you through an open door; it keeps you in the hallway. Fear never helps you put your best foot forward; it just keeps both of your feet in cement. You have the Power to live without fear.

Fear is your enemy – no other way to describe it. I’m not talking about that natural life preserving action along with a major boost of adrenaline that happens if a wild animal is coming at you. I’m talking about the fears people live with day in and day out.

Someone once described fear as, “Sand in the machinery of life.” Fear doesn’t help you, it hinders you. Fear doesn’t get you through an open door; it keeps you in the hallway. Fear never helps you put your best foot forward; it just keeps both of your feet in cement. All fear is, is false evidence appearing real.

The psychology of today is, “Learn to live with your fears”, “Embrace your fears”, “It’s normal to have fears – everybody does.”

It’s true; lots of people do have fears. And there are people who are trying to learn how to live with their fears and embrace them.

But if it’s “normal” to have fears, then why would the Bible talk about being delivered from all your fears?

Think about it - if it’s normal to have fears, and you had no fears, then you would be abnormal, right? Well why would God want you to be abnormal?

He doesn’t. He truly desires for you to be set free from all your fears.

There are many facets and aspects of fear. One of the big ones is being afraid of what others think of you. People do things, say things, and even buy things because of the fear that they have of what others think.
