25 October 2023 ‘Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you.’ Isaiah 41:10 AMPC

The first lady to win a Nobel Prize was French physicist Madame Marie Curie. She said, ‘Nothing in life is to be feared, only understood.’ So: 1) Get the facts about what you fear to take away the mystery and misinformation from it. 2) Instead of focusing on your phobia, focus on God’s promises: ‘Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice’ (v. 10 AMPC). Note the words ‘I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties’. As your faith in God grows stronger, the threat of your fears will grow weaker. 3) Relax. Imagine yourself peaceful and free of the bondage of fear. Envision the positive effect on your life when you are delivered. 4) Confront each one of your fear-triggering circumstances with baby steps. Every single hurdle you conquer strengthens you. So, commit yourself to overcoming the fears that have wreaked havoc on your peace of mind. Jesus said, ‘My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid’ (John 14:27 NKJV). Note the words ‘let not’. Don’t let fear rule you! Become proactive and arm yourself with the promises of God. Run towards your fears as David ran towards Goliath, knowing that in the name of the Lord you will win.
