When Fear Is Bad

Description

God gives us victory over the bad fears that cause us to miss out on the joy of walking and living in His will.

"The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?"—Psalm 27:1.

What are you afraid of? Are you afraid of spiders? Flying? How about public speaking? If so, you are in good company. I heard of a poll that asked people to list their greatest fears. Would you believe death actually came in second? What was first? Public speaking. I guess this means that at a funeral, more people would rather be in the casket than delivering the eulogy!

We face many fears in our lives. Although some fear is actually healthy, most is not. The fears that paralyze us, that make us want to quit, that make us want to give up, that cause us to not even try—these are destructive fears. We all need and want strength in facing those bad fears.

The good news is that God will give you the ability to face these fears if you’ll simply trust Him. That means seeking His will in doing what is right. He will empower you by His spirit as you face the fear of rejection, or death, or even giving a speech. God gives us victory over the bad fears that cause us to miss out on the joy of walking and living in His will.
