Fear is the number one stumbling block for many who have great talents and abilities however, are too afraid to step out of their comfort zone and travel to unknown places and meet new people in order to reach their destiny. I can recall when it was time for me to relocate from the city I grew up in and relocate to a new place in which I had no family and pretty much knew no one. Upon making the move I experienced various emotions, from being excited to nervous, to having great expectation to being unsure of exactly what God was doing. However, after all of my emotions settled, even with me crying for the first two weeks in which I moved there I began to understand that all I was feeling was the spirit of fear due to the new place I was in that I had never experienced.
Have you ever found yourself in an unfamiliar place in which you felt very uncomfortable but at the same time it felt so right? Yes moving away from all of my family and settling into a new area, having to make new friends, network and learn the area was all scary at first however, next to choosing Christ as my personal Lord and Savior, and choosing not to abort my daughter was the best decision I had ever made in my life! I want to encourage you on today to step out in order to find out what the world has to offer you! There is a whole world out there waiting for you to tap into it!
So my friend it is time to BREAK THE CYCLE OF FEAR and be courageous! Have faith knowing your very steps are ordered and when you simply learn to walk you will experience great things and see life in a whole new way.
Below are 3 ways to Breaking the Cycle of F-E-A-R:
1. Speak Life- Learn to speak the opposite of what you see and feel. Know that death and life lie in the power of your tongue and you can literally create the life you want to see occur in your life. Never be moved by what may be taking place in the natural but believe for those things in which you can’t see and that may appear to be out of reach for they are a lot closer than you think.
2. Re-Set Your Focus- Whatever it is you want to achieve in life you must tell yourself that you can do it! Whatever you focus on the most will become maximized in your life. If you focus on being afraid then fear will consume you and hinder you from living the life of your dreams. But if you focus on believing then your faith will increase and you will begin to see things literally change right before your eyes! Remember never be fooled by what others say or do because you are in control of your life and success doesn’t just happen for most of us, we have to prepare for it, work hard and believe that our turn will come; in which it will. Remember fear is simply: False Evidence Appearing Real so in order for something to appear that means you have to look at it. Reset your focus and zoom in on what matters, always keep your goals front and center for they are attainable and if you work hard you will reach each of them.
3. Live Fearlessly- The worst thing you can do is walk in fear, doubt and unbelief. If no one else believes in you always ensure you believe in yourself. Never be afraid to try something different for expanding your circle of influence, reading new books, traveling new places; etc all have great benefits. I challenge you to create a list of all of the things you are afraid of whether it is success, flying, being hurt; or whatever create a list and next to each of them I want you to put an “X” and beside it write: “I am no longer afraid for I am fearless”! I want you to do this for everything you write down that you are afraid of. It may sound silly but I promise you will be released from the spirit of fear which creates bondage! Be free. Enjoy Life. Live fearlessly!
