WE all have a fear of something. It could be, what people think of you. Fear of public speaking, spiders, closed in places or maybe it’s a fear of someone. Did you know that fear is talked about over 500 times in the bible? There is a reason for that. Satan will use fear to break you down. He knows everyone has a fear and he considers that a weakness. The bad news is that to overcome your fear, it requires an action from you. The good news is you are not in it alone. Remember we talked about praying to God every day. He is here to help you.
Check out these verses: Psalm 118:6, Hebrews 13:6, Deuteronomy 5:5, Proverbs 3:21, Proverbs 3:23-24, Isaiah 12:2, Matthew 14:27, John 14:27
Those are just a few. When we talk about an action, you don’t have to do it all at once. For instance, public speaking, work on making conversation in your small groups. Write a short bible lesson and ask your parents if they would listen. The fear of spiders, well can’t help you much there. Lol. I think I will always be afraid of spiders. How about a fear of someone? That depends on the situation, you should pray for God’s guidance and help. This may require a harder action. Perhaps you need to get away or notify the police. Know that God is with you every step of the way. Read those verses and pray.
Prayer “Lord Jesus, I pray for all those who are reading today. I lift them up to you to help them face their fears. Don’t let Satan confuse them or break them down. Hear their voices when they pray and bring people in their path who will encourage and support them in their decisions to take action. Lord if there are those in dangourse sistuations give them the courage they need to take action and get help. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.”
Be encouraged to take action. If at first you struggle, don’t give up. Set you goal for today small and tomorrow a little bigger. You can do it I believe in you.
Today is the start of facing my fears!
Smile jesus loves you!
