Chapter 11 – Overcome Your Fears
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
There is a lot of information, self-help materials and study guides in psychology that are intended to help you to overcome your fears, but even with all the data, and techniques, reinventing yourself in the area of overcoming your fears is going to come down to YOU trusting God! Your deliverance from fear deals with you being able to know that God has got you “covered” and that He is a lot bigger than what you fear.
We live in a world where there is much to fear. It seems like every day some new technology, group or entity crops up presenting something new to fear. Fear is promoted through the news media as well as in your local neighborhood. We have all dealt with fear in a variety of matters and lived through seasons that were full of fear and uncertainty.
Fear is nothing new to us – it’s been a lifelong companion. The questions are “how do we deal with it?” and most importantly, “how do we overcome it?”
This area of reinvention may be the most needed of all for some. It is because fear has immobilized individuals in areas that have hindered their assignment and purpose in God. It has caused people to not attempt to do something that they may very well be gifted in or participate in something that could be a part of their ministry.
When fear has paralyzed you – that can never be a good thing, nor the plan of God. Fear binds, but God’s Spirit makes you free!
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” John 8:36
Reinvention from the bondage of fear starts with God! He is your source and He is greater – we mean GREATER than anything on this entire earth, universe and beyond! If He is your source of power and victory – what do you have to fear! The Apostle Paul put it like this:
“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31
