What are you afraid of?
What is holding you back?
What turns your skin cold?
I have to tell you, I am scared to death.
I am scared of my dream failing. I’m at least equally as scared that my dream might succeed.
I am scared of disobeying God. I’m just about as scared of obedience given some of the things He is asking me to do.
I have generational fear. It goes way back. In fact, my fear is actually not as acute as the women who have gone before me. Women of faith. Yet women often paralyzed by fear. But this is what I know in the deepest core of my being:
God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. I John 4:16-18
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
