For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. – 2 Timothy 1:7 (NLT)
When you’re following God’s plan for your life, it can be easy to become afraid. God often asks us to do things that feel bigger than we are. They are often out of our comfort zone and sometimes, it’s easy to want to ignore what God is telling you to do because it isn’t easy.
Often fear can become a big player in us giving up on our dreams. Maybe you fear that you’ll make the wrong decision, so you never step out and make a decision. Maybe you fear people and rejection and so it keeps you from doing the things God has placed on your heart.
Fear is a tool the enemy likes to use to stop us. He knows that if he can get us afraid he can keep us from doing great things for God.
So today, whatever your fear looks like, know that it’s not from God. God hasn’t given you fear, so if fear is stopping you, then it’s not godly. Determine today to live fearlessly. Don’t let your fears keep you from doing what God has called you to do!
