I heard the word “FEAR” defined by a pastor friend I know as “False Evidence Appearing Real.” If you think about it, there’s much truth to that.
Isn’t that what horror is all about? Who’s in the closet? What’s under my bed? Will I survive? Will I ever find true love? All topics people fear have to do with things that either have not yet happened and/or will never happen.
Fear is a tool of the enemy. God didn’t give it to you. He gave you power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
How can you deal with fear? The Love Sword is the answer. “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear…” (1 John 4:18). If you don’t want to deal with fear anymore you need to know God. God is love (1 John 4:8).
If there is something you fear, give it to God through prayer and intercession. God will give you actionable steps to resolve the problem, and sometimes He will want you to trust Him to deal with it for you. …and trust me, He’s BIG enough to handle it! 😉
Go forth and slay fear Champions!
