Are You Letting Fear Stop You?


When a friend confronted me regarding her sense that I was letting fear stop me from doing some things in my life, my immediate reaction in my heart was this. NO WAY! But how very wrong I was!

See, I figured since God had given me the courage to do some incredibly scary things in my years on the road for Jesus with my special needs ministry dogs that I was walking in victory when it came to fear. But the Holy Spirit of God showed me otherwise!

When God sends us people to confront us in love with what He wants us to see, to acknowledge, to repent of, and to be changed by Him regarding, the wise thing to do is NOT to pridefully rebel. Instead, we should humble ourselves, seek God in prayer, wait on Him, hear Him, repent when necessary, and humbly and wholeheartedly obey Him.

I praise the Lord He sent me my friend to show me that while in some areas of my life I have definitely had victory through the Lord Jesus Christ, in others I have still allowed fear to prevail.

Friend, how about you? Where do you stand when it comes to letting fear stop you from doing the will of God in your life?

Please PRAY – and OBEY!
