Fear is truly something that many people are struggling with on regular a basis in their lives, mainly as a result of lack of faith in God. The big issue is that these people have allowed the issues of life to totally control their way of thinking in a very negative way.
When people focus too much on the things that are in this world, it will literally have an impact on them. The direct result is that their core beliefs will be as fragile and volatile as the things their minds are set on.
There are also many who also place a great deal of emphasis on their human weaknesses, lacks, shortcomings, the uncertainties of the future, their inabilities to confront dreadful life’s issues that are plaguing humanity, and so forth instead of focusing on God Himself. When that happens, these people will be overwhelmed with fear, perplexity, anxiety, doubt, and worry as a result.
As humans, our life is futile, so are the things of this world. Consequently, focusing on the things that are already futile by nature will exacerbate the problem. With this in mind, God must always be the One that our whole focus must be revolved around if we want peace, joy, and confidence.
When we do that, God will ultimately get bigger and bigger and the issues that are plaguing our lives will eventually get smaller and smaller. That’s faith in action because it pushes us to look beyond life’s obstacles with a positive perspective that God is in control and is greater than our challenges. In all honesty, it’s not that easy to drive our focus away from the things that we’re battling against in this life, but it can be done if we’re willing to acknowledge our inabilities and shortcomings by handing over our current unpleasant situations to God. Let’s look at this verse below:
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7).
Living our lives in such a hopeless and fearsome state as those who don’t know God doesn’t glorify Him. God through Christ has already given us everything that we need to overcome fear and hopelessness. Our job is to rely on God on the basis of His wonderful promises found within His Word through faith. As this scripture verse above says that God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. He’s has given us His own Spirit in order empower us to live a life far above our human ways. See having faith in God.
Lastly, Jesus didn’t give His life for us to continue to settle down for things like fear. We’re to seek God in order for Him to give us enough faith to sustain us when we’re going though time.
