Let your faith be bigger than your fear
I just want to start by saying Fear sucks! Fear is a four letter word! We should NOT be living in Fear.
Fear comes in all sorts of forms. Whether it is fear from abandonment, fear of loss, fear of lack, fear of being alone, fear of not having approval, fear of change, fear of being controlled, fear of death, well you get my point. The list goes on and on.
In the bible it says in 1 John 4:18
"There is no fear in love. But perfect love casts out ALL fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love."
When we fear something we are not made perfect in God's Perfect Love. If I say to you; I am afraid my boss won't approve of my work, that is a fear statement. Whether or not my boss approves of my work should not be a reason to fear if I am living my life for the Lord. Because in this instance if I am afraid of my boss not approving of work I have probably not done my job to the BEST of my ability.
The bible says "Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men, knowing that you will receive the reward of an inheritance from the Lord. You serve the Lord Christ."
I have lived a life full of FEARS, and until recently I have learned that I was not living the way God intended, and that was He wanted me to live in His Perfect Love. So now when I fear something, I am choosing to live in a life of Perfect Love.
In todays world, I feel as a society we have walked away from this. Wouldn't you agree? I mean all the media tells us is fear. We can't escape it, unless we lock ourselves up in a bubble somewhere. But as believers we need to be the light for everyone else to be guided by. If we can start remembering the power God has given us "perfect Love casts out all fear" then maybe we as a body of Christ can make this world a much better place.
When I thought about blogging today I looked up and this is the sign that was on my wall above my computer it gave me the inspiration to write this today.
I just want you to know if you fear, you are definitely not alone. I still struggle with it daily. But I am choosing not to let it overrun my life and health. Because believe it or not Fear is an emotion, (check out my last blog) And if you have fear you need to face it head on with perfect love so it does not overtake you in life and in health.
When I started using Young Living Oils I was in such fear of loosing money, being taken for a ride, like how can these little bottles of oil do anything. Well if that is something you truly fear, I was right there with you... But i chose to leave my fear of loosing money, it not working, looking stupid etc. in the drain where it belongs. And took the plunge and purchased a kit. I can tell you point blank I have never looked back. So please if you are on the fence, Get OFF it is time. I love you and wish you all the best in your life and health.
Many Blessings Always
