Overcome Your Fears

Faith is the antidote for fear.

Fear is an emotion everyone experiences. People fear tangible things like being hurt, robbed, or cheated. They also fear intangible things like rejection, failure, and giving speeches. Even though fear can sometimes be useful, it can easily become your greatest enemy and hold your life in an awesome grip. Fear can keep you from doing the right thing at the right time.

Remember the story in the Bible when a storm threatened to capsize the boat in which the disciples and Jesus were sailing? Jesus remained calm. He had faith that He could overcome the danger at hand, and He told the disciples that their fear came from a lack of faith.

If you want to overcome your fears, you must have faith that God can conquer them.

When he woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the water, “Quiet down!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. And he asked them, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still not have faith in me?” Mark 4:39-40
