Are you living in fear?
Let me ask you another way.
Are there fears in your life that are preventing you from moving forward in any particular area?
Is fear controlling what you do and don’t do?
These are honest questions.
I can say that the battle with fear has been an intense one lately.
I’ve allowed lies to seep in and drown out one important truth: God loves me.
Because of His love for me, He’s been showing me these various lies over the past few weeks.
Rather than letting me sink into the depths of it’s stronghold, He gently pulled me up and opened my eyes to the truth of what fear does to a person.

But He didn’t stop there.
He reminded me of His unending, faithful love for me. He reminded me that He is my security and that He is always ready to help me out of trouble. (Psalm 46:1)
How to Triumph Over Fear with One Key Truth
You see I have no reason to fear. I am perfectly loved and cared for by a God who is in control of all things.
I was reminded of this fact this week as I read Deb’s post How to Conquer Fear and Trust God’s Will One Day at a Time.
Fear doubts God’s love.
Whatever God allows, good or bad . . . Everything He allows or withholds comes from His immeasurable love.
He is love. Love is His character and He cannot deny or betray His character.
True, bad things happen. But God has used even the bad things, sometimes more so than the good things to bless my life, grow my faith and draw me closer. I can look back now at the worst events and experiences and praise God for the way He used them for my good and His glory.
