What do you fear?

Sunday, April 25, 2010

I know what I fear.  Most of the time. 

I fear people, expectations, making phone calls, and meeting new people.  I’m a PEOPLE PLEASER…and I fight it all the time.

I fear the future, being childless, being alone, and losing Alex.  I’m probably slightly CO-DEPENDENT…again, fight it all the time.

How do you fight FEAR?

This past weekend I had the pleasure of hearing Andree Seu speak at our church’s annual Women’s Conference.  730 women attended and heard good Gospel truth on how to fight fear.

Nuggets of Truth for You:

“When I am afraid, I will trust in You, Lord” PSALM 56:3

Remember…We rely upon the LORD’s CHARACHTER to battle fear, He’s good, kind, loving, gracious, powerful, and has perfect knowledge.

Fear is the RESULT of a wrong focus…if we’re fearful, we are not fixing our eyes on CHRIST, but instead the circumstances.

Fear is a gap between our THEOLOGY and our REALITY.

One of my favorite sayings from a friend of mine is that disappointment is the result when our expectations differ from reality…in the same way, Fear is the result when our REALITY differs from our THEOLOGY.

If we believe GOD to be truly SOVEREIGN and that HE DESIRES to give us HIS BEST…what do we have to FEAR?

Changes my perspective a little, did it yours?
