No Longer Slaves to Fear

"The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." Franklin D. Roosevelt

"For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and self control." Paul in 2 Timothy 1:7 NET

Fear is an emotion induced by a threat perceived by living entities, which causes a change in brain and organ function and ultimately a change in behavior, such as running away, hiding, or freezing in the midst of painful or traumatic events. (Adapted from Wikipedia).

"Fear is a manipulative emotion that can trick us into living a boring life." Donald Miller

According to one source, the top ten human fears are:


          10.        Losing your freedom
           9.         The unknown
           8.         Pain
           7.         Disappointment
           6.         Misery
           5.         Loneliness
           4.         Ridicule
           3.         Rejection
           2.         Death
           1.         Failure

We all struggle with fear from time to time. For some of us it is our constant companion. For others, we only deal with fear when faced with specific life circumstances like public speaking, taking on a new project, or finding the right person as a potential life partner. 
  • What is your biggest fear? 
  • How do you usually deal with fear? 
  • What would you attempt to do if you knew you would not fail? 
Sometimes worship music can touch us very deeply and minister to the very core of our being.  Perhaps this offering related to fear will touch you in a powerful way.
