FEAR. False Evidence Appearing Real, a saying that caught my attention when I first heard it. I began to question why do I fear? what is it that I fear? 🤔
Fear is something we formulate in our minds, things we convince ourselves are real and a great threat to our living being. THAT’S CRAZY RIGHT! Like why does our mind have to go and play us like that?😤Haha but sadly that is the truth about fear and the power of the mind. Isn’t it written, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7). This is why even inspirational/motivational speakers stress on the topic of personal development and creating a positive mindset (but this is a conversation for another day☺️).
Think about what you fear the most, I know everyone has many fears and we toss this word around a lot like a ball. However, have you ever really sat down and thought, what is my BIGGEST fear? and why?
What are the actual thoughts that lead you to believe this is your greatest fear? If you come up with the answers please let me know.
Even myself I struggle to think why I fear what I fear😩. It has become a norm to accept what we fear as a way of life, like yea this is who I am, I fear this and that.
Well here is the funny bit, wait for it…
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear…” (2 Timothy 1:7).
Fear is a SPIRIT, WAAHHHAT🤯 I know but stay with me though. Fear is a spirit that takes a hold on our minds, puts a blanket over our eyes and makes us believe in a reality that is not the true reality that God has placed for us. This spirit likes to come in slowly and discretely, it will keep feeding you fear slowly and slowly that by the time you realise what’s going on it’s already taken hold. This is when it becomes very difficult to break.
Today I challenge you to look at your life? what are you fearing right now the most? I know even with the coronavirus there is a lot of alarm and fear and this is the perfect playing ground for the spirit, but I want you to sit down make a list of your top 3 fears, acknowledge them, understand them by asking the question at the beginning of this post.
And I want you to decide to make the necessary steps to break that fear.
During the coming weeks, we will be going on a journey to breaking fear. 💪🏾💪🏾
Stay blessed the most stylish way possible, being the you that God made you to be 😊✨
