Deuteronomy 31:8 (AMP) 8 It is the Lord Who goes before you; He will [march] with you; He will not fail you or let you go or forsake you; [let there be no cowardice or flinching, but] fear not, neither become broken [in spirit-depressed, dismayed, and unnerved with alarm
You can feel afraid without being afraid. When we face our fear we will find freedom in our lives. Satan uses fear to keep us from progressing. We can confront fear and not let us control us through faith. We will always feel fear, but we must conqueror it and refuse to listen to the threats from the devil. We have to learn how to do things afraid. Fear will always present itself so we must not give into it or run from it – it is time to tackle fear.
The more we confront fear by the weaker fear will get in our lives. We cannot just pray fear away, we have to confront it and deal with it. A lot of things we fear never even happen and the fear ends up being worse than the thing that may have taken place if it did happen.
We all fear that we will have trials that come in our lives. No need to fear that, because it will happen. Not to sound like a downer, but we will. Life is a roller-coaster ride. The more we focus on our fear, the worse it can seem. If you know you have something happening that is bad then it makes no sense to fear it, it’s just going to happen. God’s equipped us to get through fear with joy in our heart. We are anointed for difficulties.
