Fear can keep you from moving forward

1 John 4:16-18 (AMP)16 And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him.17 In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world.18 There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love [a]turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear [b]brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love’s complete perfection].

Ask God to reveal to you the small things that He does for you in life.  God is doing a lot of things our lives every day that we can have a tendency to overlook.  We can learn to be conscious and aware of the Love of God.

No matter what we go through in life we will never have to go through it alone.  We need to remember that in our trials.  Instead of talking about our problem or how afraid of our problem we are we need to talk about how great God is in the midst of our problem.  Fear is conquered by faith.

Fear can keep you where you are in your problem and keep you from moving forward.  Courage is moving forward in the midst of your fear.  We have to stand up for ourselves and we do not have to let fear keep us from moving forward.

Acts 1:8 (AMP) 8 But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
