The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. Joseph Campbell
Fear is an unpleasant feeling triggered by the perception of danger, real or imagined. Most will experience this sensation more then a few times if they live long enough.
In most cases, we get our first dose of fear when we realize we have to be vaccinated before entering school for the first time. After that, its all downhill.
We become afraid of the unknown; we fear being held back, we are afraid of changes, love, or lack of, afraid to die, etc. Why? God has not given us a Spirit of Fear.
Some are not afraid of anything, well that’s what they say, some are fearmongers, they are absolutely the worst. It is the spreading of frightening and exaggerated rumors of impending danger to purposely arouse fear to manipulate the public that makes them so deplorable.
When you know trouble is just up the road, what do we do? We prepare or try to avoid it. If we see a pothole in the middle of the road, what do we do? Most attempt to drive around it. But when it comes to fear, we can’t sidestep or avoid it; we have to meet it face to face.
What we can do to face our fears is to mentally and physically prepare to overcome or avoids the things we cannot control, giving us the best chance to live a blessed and successful life, if God is willing.
I know we were not meant to live in fear, especially the fear of dying. What would be the point? For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2nd Timothy 1: 7 KJV
I believe the moment we become conscious of our surroundings we have some type of say so or some type of decision we can make concerning that knowledge. We will either fight for control or accept living in fear, which is not the desired choice.
The spirit of fear is meant to control us, but it is our responsibility to not allow it to overpower our mind in an attempt to do that very thing, but if you cannot control that fear it will burn everything around you to the ground and you with it.
If fear has a grip on you, you have to commit and take back what belongs to you, especially the mind and the body, physical things are a little easier to get over, but, no matter how afraid you may be, did you know Self-control is a strength? Right thought is mastery. Calmness is power.
Some know Mastering others is strength, mastering yourself is true power. Therefore, having the ability and confidence to do it is required. I suggest if you are looking for power seek knowledge.
Nelson Mandela tells us, I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
