FEAR

What is fear? Oxford Dictionary defines it as  “an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm. It can also be defined as “the likelihood of something unwelcome happening.”

Man is greater than fear.  Everyone has a fear. Some are afraid of heights, others are afraid of darkness, while some fear spiders. Fear becomes a monster.The issue now becomes how we handle our fears. Do we let it control us to the point where it causes a dilapidating effect on our lives?

Someone said, “Man is greater than fear. If you tell yourself that you cannot overcome it, it means that you have allowed fear to have a domineering power over you.”

To be able to acknowledge that one suffers from such and faces it head on is the first step to taking back control; the first step to overcoming.FEAR

How then do we face this monster called fear. it is my embracing another fear.

This type of fear makes us to reverence.  This is not an unpleasant emotion rather it is a feeling of great awe, a feeling that brings from within a great desire to please our Creator. An emotion that helps us erase and overcome every other  type of fear and this is the FEAR OF GOD.

Oswald Chambers said: “The remarkable thing about fearing God is that, when you fear God, you fear nothing else; whereas, if you do not fear God, you fear everything else.”

Remain Blessed
