“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually are you not to be?” – Marianne Williamson
We all have something that we’re afraid of and we shouldn’t be . Sometimes we don’t realize that this fear may be holding us back from so many different things. Whether it be job opportunities, new environments, starting a business, etc. The devil has his way of making you believe that what you want to do is just too much for you and your incapable of doing it . Your mind is his playground (only if you believe what he tells you). But God says he did not give us the spirit of fear, but of POWER and LOVE and a SOUND MIND. We have to stop letting fear paralyze us, causing us to be stuck in the world. Overcome that fear and take control of your own life.
Fear of change: We as humans tend to find a place in life where we become too complacent. We get use to the same friends, the same job, the same school. So we never step outside of that comfort zone. But what happens when God has big plans for us that may require us to move differently ? Lose friends? Meet new people ? Move to another city? The only reason you fear change is because your afraid of what you might have to give up. But would God make you give up something for worse in return ? No. I recently had to realize this for myself. I blocked a blessing God had for me all because I let the devil convince me that I should stay where I’m safe at….. my comfort zone. Then I realized how can I flourish if I don’t take that leap? How will my dreams ever make reality if I never put the life into them? So don’t talk yourself out of something because you’re afraid to do it, what God has for you is for you! No one can take that from you but you.
Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive about what can go right . Fear is only a mind thing . Everything that you’re running away from is in your head. Whatever it may be that you are afraid of, don’t allow it to limit you. The world is yours and everything in it. You just have to go get it, your greatest achievement is on the other side of fear.
