FEAR = False Evidence Appearing Real!
Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.
Fear can be a paralyzing force, gripping us with an iron fist and leaving us feeling helpless and alone. But, please do not let fear control you any longer. Instead, turn to God in prayer and seek His protection and guidance. Know that He loves you unconditionally and will always be there for you when you need Him most. Remember that nothing is too big for God to handle, no matter how overwhelming it may seem at the moment.
It’s easy to feel like everything is spiraling out of control when we’re consumed by fear, but rest assured that better days are ahead – both here on earth and in heaven for eternity with our Lord above. Don’t let anxiety twist your thoughts or disrupt your daily life any longer; take comfort in knowing that you have an all-powerful protector who will never leave your side. And if ever the weight of fear becomes too heavy to bear alone, reach out to a fellow Christian brother or sister for help – together, we can conquer even the darkest fears that threaten to hold us back from living our best lives with Christ by our side! I have been overwhelmed with fear many times until I realized that I should not react out of fear but rather take my concerns to God in prayer and, if necessary, ask a Christian brother or sister for help. Yes, fear is natural for all of us in this world, yet it does not have to control us or intimidate us. ~ Bill Greguska
Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Overcome Fear And Find Purpose Through God!
Can Fear Be Both Good And Bad?
To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior, and perverse speech. Proverbs 8:13
The more people fear and respect God, the more they will hate evil and run from it. Love for God and the love of sin cannot coexist. Harboring secret sins (only you know what those are) means tolerating evil within yourself. Make a clean break today with sin and commit yourself entirely to God. Because God loves you and has a plan for you, you need to discover that God Has a plan for your life you need to discover. How do you know for sure that you can overcome fear in your life? I do not mean to overcome the fear of God, but rather the fear that paralyzes us and cripples us from being the person we were hoping to be.
Fear Is From Our Enemy, The Devil!
The Lord assures us that we ought not to be afraid, yet when we struggle with fear, it makes it hard to take that assurance to heart, but it can be accomplished if we trust God to be our strength. With God’s help, I have made it through many different fears in my life, and without God, I could only wonder how I made it through. I can see now that I have learned that fear will either cripple a person or motivate them to do more than they ever could do before.
As it says in James 4:7, Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. ~ Bill Greguska
