Do you live in fear?

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." II Timothy 1:7

Do you live in fear?

Are you afraid of the dark?

Are you afraid of dying?

Are you afraid of fire?

Are you afraid of falling down and not being able to get back up?

Are you so worried that you can't think straight?

Do you always fear the worst will happen?

Do you fear spiders, and snakes?

Have you lost your faith in God?

There are untold thousands of us who fear something or other.

Did you know that the fear in you eats away at your body.

It can give you ulcers, make you heartbeat irregular, cause your blood pressure to go up, maybe even bottom out.

Fear has a snowball effect.

It starts out like a small ball, but as you keep feeding it, it soon will escalate and finally will become as big as an avalanche.

If we do not break up the snowball it will totally engulf you.

Don't give your fears a chance to grow.

Stop feeding the fire.

Fight back!

Start filling your thoughts with good thoughts.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt said it best when he said: "The only thing that we have to fear is fear itself!"

We must confront our fears head on.

When we do they generally are not as bad as we had feared.

If we are not positive in our situation and we let fear set in we are already sunk.

I don't know about you, but I want to be on that winning team - team Jesus!

We need to listen to that guidance within - the Holy Spirit.

He will give us the power, He will make us safe and secure no matter what may come our way.

"For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry Abba, Father." Romans 8:15

We as Christians must be positive!

We as Christians we must be courageous and believe.

"Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord." Psalm 31:24

We as Christians must have that faith that will sustain us.

"In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do to me." Psalm 56:11

We must take care of our fear today.

How are you dealing with your fear today?

We need to take care of our today before it becomes tomorrow or even yesterday.

There are only two ways to eliminate worry from two days a week.

"There are two days in the week about which and upon which I never worry. Two carefree days, kept sacredly free from fear and apprehension. One of these days is yesterday....And the other is tomorrow." --John Bunyan--

I think that statement says it all.

Don't give yourself the opportunity to go backward.

Don't let fear, or depression get into your mind.

Don't let the enemy get his stronghold on you.

You are God's child and you have the power within you that will help you.

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?" Romans 8:35
