Fear, that is. Fear is crippling. Fear is defeating. Fear is debilitating. Fear freezes our natural impulses and thwarts our ability to respond to life.
“The person who is fearful approaches everything with the anticipation that they cannot do what God has told them to do…
“Because I anticipate God intervening, I have a desire to go through with it. Because I believe that God is going to help me, I have a desire to do what He would have me to do. Fear makes excuses. Faith takes steps of obedience, no matter how bad the odds are.”
~from Weathering the Storm by Dennis Corle
II Timothy 1:7 – For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Step out in faith today. Ignore the circumstances, forget the odds, don’t worry about failing…just step out and do what God has told you to do.
