Dealing with Fear

Fear. I’m gonna be honest with you. I have a lot of big dreams for my life…but I have just as many fears that I’m not good enough, that I won’t make a difference in this world, and sometimes I ask if my dreams even matter. I’m not immune to the whispers of the enemy, trying to get you and I to fear failure, trying to stop you and I from stepping into the MORE that God has for us. I literally just wrote my dreams and my fears in my journal, and just recognised that the fear was not actually from God. Not only that, I realised that maybe the point of having such big dreams is that I rely on God to fulfil them, rather than relying on my own strength and own capacity to fulfil them. I actually can’t do any of it without God. And yet the devil knows this and knows that perhaps the very act of stepping boldly into the calling on my life will be the very thing that draws me closer into relationship with Jesus as I rely on him for all that I need every single day. That’s gotta upset the devil. So maybe I’m not immune to fear, but I can choose to ignore the lies, believe that all that God has for me is beyond my wildest dreams or expectations and step into this crazy unknown adventure with Jesus. And so can you.


So I wanted to ask, is fear stopping you from bravely and boldly stepping into your dreams and the calling on your life? See, the devil can try telling you lies, but you have a CHOICE whether or not you’re gonna listen. You have a choice whether or not you’re going to believe him. The Bible says that the devil prowls around LIKE a lion, looking for someone to devour. It doesn’t say that he IS a lion. Actually far from it. He actually has no power or hold over your life unless you let him! He can’t actually stop you from doing what God has called you to do unless you choose to listen to all his ridiculous lies.
