Fear you don’t own me
There ain’t no room in this story
How different would our lives be if this was our reaction to the fears we face everyday?
Fear of failure
Fear of disappointment and hurt
Fear of letting others down
Fear of making the wrong decision
Fear of being inadequate
Fear of losing someone
Fear of redundancy
Fear of standing up to the world
Fear of missing out
Fear of not meeting deadlines
Fear of what other people think of you
Fear of being a bad parent
But the Lord’s word tells us…
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but one of power, love and sound judgement.”
2 Timothy 1:7
Did you catch that? He doesn’t want us to be owned by fear – he wants us to live the life he’s plotted out for us in all it’s fullness. We have to allow his power to work through us, while doing everything in love and trusting that the choices we make are good enough! We ARE good enough!
So as you listen to today’s track by Francesca Battistelli – think about the fears that are holding you back in any aspect of your life and don’t let them get comfortable, don’t allow them to control you. Stand up to them and tell there’s no room for them in your life because you want to pursue all of the promises that your Constant Friend has for you!
