Blocked by Fear

One of the main reasons people do not accomplish their goals comes down to one word - fear! Sometimes just the mere thought of speaking out, getting up in front, meeting new people, applying for a job or even asking for a raise is so far out of their “comfort zone,” that fear shuts them down completely. There’s no need to live in fear as it zaps your energy, keeps you locked in a prison of self doubt and prevents you from being all that God wants you to be! But there’s a way of getting rid of all those “butterflies” fluttering in your stomach and that is to give your fears to God and and in return He will give you His strength and confidence to go forward. When you’re blocked by fear - pray and ask God for an extra measure of courage to take on any task He gives you. You’ll be surprised at how quickly fear will hastily retreat! Immediately God will surround you with His sweet peace and the fear will melt away. Whenever you’re afraid, claim Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you.” Help is only a prayer away! Text: 2 Chronicles 20:17, Psalm 27:1, Isaiah 35:3-4
