I am challenged to the core every time I read this quote! It is a great reminder that, in order to live a thriving and fulfilled life, we must learn to conquer our fears on a daily basis. We must find ways to stretch ourselves and do that one thing we are hesitant to do because we fear we might fail. Our human nature will always choose safety no matter what the situation is, but we must learn to discern when “safety” is really fear in disguise, preventing us from truly living. Fear is the opposite of faith, and if we are not careful, fear can make us its prisoners, stopping us from reaching our full potential and experiencing true fulfillment. Fear can fill our minds with worries, anxiety, and impossibilities instead of faith, peace, and possibilities!
How can we conquer fear? By getting rid of all the excuses and doing that one thing we think we can’t do – again and again – until the fear is completely under our feet! If we create a habit of overcoming fear, we will experience incredible freedom and see the things that one we thought impossible become possible!
So today, I encourage to step out of your comfort zone and know that God has giving you the ability and strength to overcome your fears!
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
