I don’t understand myself and my human nature. For some reason, I fear the very things that I have committed to never be. If I am completely in God’s will and that is my only goal, then the things I fear becoming will never be as long as that stays my main purpose.
It’s a strange phenomenon. Fear. It’s so powerful. So life changing. So, discontenting. It’s so fearful…
I know how strange that sounds, but it really is true. Fear is simply fearful. We’re afraid of being afraid. That’s why it’s so powerful. It’s one fear feeding off of another fear. Like people who say success makes them hungrier for more success. Fear empowers more fear.
And it’s scary. We don’t know how we got this way, and we don’t know how to not be. And the only thing I can say is, keep the Main thing the main thing. Forever have a purpose to do God’s will and the fear will fade. God has not given us the spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). So don’t take ownership.
