Conquering the Fear that Limits You!
Fear is an enemy of progress, it stops people from enjoying the life God has given them. It limits us from fully maximizing whatever resources God has given us.
Now is the time to conquer that fear that has held you captive for so long a time now. You need to start enjoying your life and making the most of the life God has given you.
CAUSES OF FEAR.
EXPERIENCE OF THE PAST.
Some people are afraid of travelling to a far place because of the car accident they had in the past. Some are afraid of taking the next step in life because they failed the last time they tried. Past failures in life have stopped you from exploring new frontiers. Some are afraid of life itself because of some ugly incidents in their life, the loss of their spouse, parents, children have conditioned them to an
unexplainable fear of life. You are afraid you might be killed the same way your spouse, parents, children were killled. No, you can’t continue to live this way.
Are you among those who are afraid of their village because of the activities of wicked agents of satan there? You can’t continue to live in that mental state. What is it that once happened in the past or that is happening now that has created this fear of the unknown in you? Time to conquer it.
OPINION OF OTHERS.
Some are afraid of what people might say. These people are under the shadow of people’s opinions. If you are battlling with this it’s time to be free. Your faith is suffering because of what people might say. You have retreated from fully participating in spiritual activities because you don’t want people to label you as too churcheous, religious, “holy nweje” and thus your spiritual gifts waste away. The joyous relationship you are suppose to enjoy with God is not there because of the fear you allowed to rule you. Time to deepen your Christian life and get more radical about it. God doesn’t need Christians who are playing it safe. Whether you are in school, in your work place, in your shop, in your yard now is the time to shake off that fear of what people might say and move to greater heights.
On your dreams and aspirations, you are about aborting your mission simply because you don’t want people to label you a dreamer. You are about throwing away the dreams that will change lives. Now is the time to rise and choke that voice of “what others might say” and keep on working towards achieving your dreams.
PRESENT PREDICAMENT OR STATE.
Could it be that because of where you are now you are not ready to move on lest you don’t succeed. You don’t like your present job yet you are afraid to move.
You now doubt your capacity or abilities because of where you have found yourself today. There is this discrimination or disparity between university graduates and polytechnic graduates and because you are in poly you now doubt your capacity. There is fear within you that there wouldn’t be much consideration for you in the job market. Know it that whoever fails to see the potentials in you has himself to blame. It doesn’t matter whether you went to a community secondary school what matters is how you develop yourself, how you build the you in you.
Don’t look at your present state & say no I can’t do much. You can and you will. Fear not! Don’t be afraid of the future which is still in the future.
STEPS TO CONQUER.
Identify your fear.
Before you can even think of conquering it you have to know it. My fears and your fears are not the same. Identify and label your fear and if you know the cause state it also. For example if you are afraid of failure say I am afraid of failure because I failed in the past. If you are afraid of success say I am afraid of success because I don’t think am ready to handle it’s responsiblities. If you are not sure of it’s cause no problem but make sure you call your fear, fear!
Know it’s location
Fear is nothing but an illusion. It’s not real it only sits in your brain, your mind. Know that fear doesn’t exist anywhere except within you. It is an evil seed planted by satan.
Talk to your fear.
Address your fear, tell it what it should do. Command it to go. Visualize yourself going on a journey and fear is dragging you back simply turn back and kick it and say to it get out of my life. “Get away from me fear”. “Fear of witchcraft get away from me” and mean it.
Pray against the spirit of fear.
Prayer is the master key. Pray against the particular fear you are dealing with. Ask God to deliver you from it. Don’t stop keep praying until you are totally free from fear.
Kill it with God’s word.
The word of God is a weapon for destroying satanic strongholds. God’s word in the scripture are for you to read and meditate upon it. God says fear not so fear not.
You are the best.
