It is that shedding of light on the dark places and the things that you would probably otherwise not want others to know about you or your life. It can be that fear that leads causes you to sit paralyzed in your circumstances and not make a decision towards action because dealing with the truth seems way to difficult.
As we continue on our month of fear, we wanted to touch on a relationship with God. Trusting God can be an unknown and cause many not to seek it out.
Like many people, there are decisions that I have made in my life that I don’t necessarily like. These are decisions that I have made based more out of fear than based on wisdom. With every poor decision based on fear, my confidence in decision making dwindled to the point that I became fearful to make decisions.
No longer was I fearful of facing those things that could appear scary and unwanted, because now I knew who I was in the eyes of the Lord. I had no need to fear man any longer.
A month of fear. Recognizing it. Conquering it. Refusing to let it control us. Do we fear? Yes. Do we all experience some kind of fear? Yes.
