“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7) We all have fears. It’s a fact of life. Some fears seem to be on a larger scale…fear of flying or heights, fear of driving, fear of leaving the house, etc.
God designed us with emotions. These emotions were meant for good, even anger and sadness such as a righteous anger and being sad over someones illness or death. Emotions can protect us from harm or bring joy to our spirit….
Fear, along with intimidation, is one of the greatest weapons used to get someone to do what you want them to do. It has been used successfully in wars and in abusive relationships…
Fear is a powerful emotion that can keep one from moving forward. It’s like a taser where once it hits you, it seizes you up, making you unable to move.
