Fear can be debilitating in every aspect of life. It can stop a person in their tracks from attaining their goals in life. That is why it is imperative to destroy the fear that imperils your growth mentally, physically, and spiritually. A good start to expel fear forever is mentioned in my previous blog of Today is A New Day for A New Beginning by developing new good habits.
As quoted in the Master Key 3:17a, 18b “It is our attitude of mind toward life which determines the experiences with which we are to meet…then we can leap over the chasm of doubt and hesitation which fear places in his path.”
My personal ‘go-to’ reference for kicking fear to the curb is found in I John 4 where it explains how God loved us so incredibly much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to be the price paid for our sin. This shows us how we are to love one another. Why is this necessary? Well, because in Verse 18 and 19 it says, “There is no fear in love; but because fear has torment, perfect love casts out fear. We love Him, because He first loved us.”
Sweet. Now I have the courage filled with a powerful confidence that is learned by doing the skills necessary for my profession taught to me by a mentor–Just as a skillful athlete does to train for competition. Practice. Exercise. Repeat. In this area where I develop the skills necessary to kick fear out of the picture, I rejoice for I am now Free to Serve without Fear!
