Fear Is A Liar. There is a song by Zach Williams titled Fear Is A Liar. If you have time listen to the words to this song.
I don’t think I am alone when I say I have struggled with fear most of my life. I struggled with anxiety for a good part of my life too. However, I have really come full circle in the battle to overcome fear. The only reason is being grounded in my faith in Jesus Christ. In the song he says “fear he is a liar, he will rob your rest and steal your happiness.” That is what fear does to us!
Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
I have wanted to barrel race my entire life since I was 9 years old. I would spend hours in the tall grass across from my house and run around imaginary barrels on an 18 year old Appaloosa named Rojo. It taking almost 40 years to live a dream and I could let fear keep me from doing it, but I have entrusted to God all things that I desire to do. I admit that my mind still ponders the what ifs but I quickly give those moments to God and trust Him with my life. After all, life on earth is temporary but life with Him is eternal and forever.
Give your fears to God today and move forward and shine for Him.
2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline.”
Dear God, help me not be paralyzed by my fears, but when I am afraid, help me trust in You. Amen.
