A strong, uncontrollable, unpleasant emotion caused by actual or perceived danger
or threat. Induced by something or someone.
Other words to help you relate to fear are:
Do you find yourself faced with or tortured by any of the above feelings/emotions?
2 Timothy 1:7...God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound
**Fear compromises these things...it compromises power, love and a sound mind/self discipline.
It makes you FEEL like those things are impossible. Like they are unachievable. Like they will
never happen for you.
Fear is a liar. Fear tells us that we do not and cannot have power, love, peace of mind, and
self discipline. But guess what?? Our enemy is a liar. He is the father of Lies. He is the instigator
of fear. He attacks your mind with a vengeance, with lies subtle enough for you to believe them.
He tricks you into believing they are YOUR thoughts founded upon your reality and because of that,
you believe they are true. And when we believe these lies, the enemy uses fear to attempt to keep
you from being all that God created you to be.
Think about it...and we will talk more later :).
