Modern living can be hazardous! The stress we face each day causes many people to suffer panic attacks. People spend so much time worrying. Businesses are making millions offering stress management techniques that often don’t work as advertised.
What is fear? Often it is concern over life issues that we feel we can’t control. When we face hard times, have difficulty in relationships or financial problems, we can become overwhelmed. Life seems to pile more problems on top of the problems we already face. It is enough to make us paranoid!
There is hope! Jesus came and provided a way to overcome fear. He taught us that perfect love casts out fear. Think about it this way: When you are alone in a storm, the sounds and force of the wind can seem overwhelming. But, when you experience the storm with another person, it is still just as strong, but you take comfort from being with another.
The first step is to overcoming fear is enter into a relationship with God. You can do that by asking Christ to come into your life and be your friend. He can forgive you for the things that you have done wrong and offers forgiveness to all who ask. Then, He offers to walk with us every step of the way. Jesus can help you through every battle you face in this life and promises you eternal life with Him. What is fear? An opportunity to turn your life over to Jesus!
