Fear is an inconvenient monkey wrench in anyone’s plan. Fear can be what comes into a room while you stand their alone, or a hurried presence that shows up in the middle of a large crowd. We must learn to identify the spirit of fear from a warning so that we know its presence.
Fear is Spiritual
The bible refers to fear as a spirit. I was taught long ago that according to God, hate is not the opposite of Love, Fear is. There are several scriptures that indicate this revelation. In paraphrasing, the scriptures make the reader understand that Fear and Love do not exist in the same place.
I believe that many relationships are even tested by fear. Relationships are the most intimate encounters we have on earth I believe in our humanity. And when we discover love, fear will always show up in your area of weakness to see if you’ll rise above the threat of fear or sabotage something divine by giving way to it.
There is no fear in love, and many of the long term relationships that God brings us will be tested in some way as we grow internally to be more of what and whom God desires us to be.
What to do with Fear!
When fear rears its head, cut it off; choose love to be your witness, and your decision. I will talk about this more in the sequel to Identity Crisis, Identity Christ Is: A Journey to Love ( a book of memoir authored by me). Fear is an antagonistic co-signer who wants to see you fail, and then the feeling and spirit of fear disappears. This is not some sign of relief, fears mission was accomplished.
Today I want to encourage you to face fear and to think about whatever important decision you need to make full of the Love that is God! Think about the most divine answer to the decisions of life, and align it with God. Fear leaves in two ways I’ve discovered: Either when it has finished its duty and helped you to operate in total fear or, it dissipates when your total choice is Love.
May your today and forever be guided, influenced and decided by LOVE!
