“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.” -Isaiah 43:1A-3A ESV
Worry is paying interest on debt you might not owe! 2 Tim 1:7 reminds us; for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. FEAR is FLESH based. Our FLESH is FEAR BUT our SPIRIT requires FAITH. Faith and FEAR are opposite ends of the same line.
Leader, Faith, Trust, Vision are all similar in a way, they all require commitment to something unknown or unseen. This is why knowing HIS WORD will set you FREE from doubt, fear, vain imaginations and OLD B.S that doesn’t serve your NEW SPIRIT! It is not a SIN to experience fear- it becomes a sin when we let it control us and separate us from the belief that God is good and He wants the best for us. Fear is nothing more than a chemical response to what we are thinking about.
Conduit, once you realize Fear is a liar then you can FEEL the fear and do it anyway! SIN occurs when we believe the FLESH, or our enemy, and not believe God. When we believe the liar, fear will keep us from having faith and doing God’s will. Remember God’s promise in Rev 2:17; To the one who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, with a new name written on the stone that no one knows except the one who receives it.’ TRUST IN THE LORD with all your heart and lean NOT on your own understandings!
