The definition of fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. Fear can present itself in many ways like worry, stress, anxiety, nervousness, panic, heartbreak, and hopelessness. They are caused by a variety of sources like past traumas, the environment you were raised in, or a disturbing experience. Maybe you experience fear as a result of trying to have control over things in your life.
Fear is a relentless giant and this makes you fearful about what will happen in the future or what could go wrong. And to be honest it probably will! The giant of fear can get a foothold in your life and begin to dominate you. It can demoralize you and ultimately diminish God’s glory in your life. It can gnaw away at your life, erode your sense of confidence, rob you of sleep, and steal your praise to God. Once you realize that most things in life are out of your control and put your trust in God to lead you and guide you, you can overcome fear!
The solution to facing the giant of fear is by having complete faith in Jesus. It isn’t so much as saying, “Fear, Go Away,” but confessing it and having the confidence that Jesus is bigger than this giant and it has already been defeated and naturally you will begin to build up your faith. Give God any fears that you may have and ask for His strength to be perfected in your weakness. In Romans 10:17, Paul states, “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ” (NASB). When you see and hear God through his word, then you will begin to see that Abba father is bigger than your giant.
Quote Scripture to yourself, there is power in God’s words. So today, identify the source of your fear and place it in the hands of Jesus. Remember that with God all things are possible, and He is able to overcome any giant. Meditate on the promises of God day and night. “And looking at them Jesus said to them, “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” -Matthew 19:26 (NASB)
