Don't Let Fear Hold You Back
By Victoria Osteen - Oct 30, 2015
Oftentimes, people stay right where they are in life for one reason—fear. Fear can be paralyzing. It tries to keep us from God's best. It prevents us from growing and stretching the way God intends. Fear in one area can spread and affect every other area of life.The good news is that we don't have to live in fear. As believers in Jesus we have victory over fear. Scripture tells us that fear isn't from God. In fact, He makes it very clear in 2 Timothy that God has not given us a spirit of fear but He has given us a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind.Fear is what the enemy uses to distort reality and try to keep us from moving forward. But when we look into the mirror of God's Word, we can clearly see the truth. Ultimately, it's God's perfect love that drives fear out of our lives. When you embrace the Truth of God's love for you, nothing can hold you back!Today, receive His love and let it empower you. If you are facing fear, find out what God says in His Word about your situation. Read it, meditate on it, speak it, and let it sink down into your heart. Let His truth and love give you confidence. Find safety, peace, and joy in Him and don't let fear hold you back!"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear…" (I John 4:18, NKJV).
