“Fear is not real. It’s a product of thoughts you create. Now do not understand me, danger is very real. But fear is a choice.”
I loved the thought of how just like anger, fear is a choice. Worry, fear, negative thinking, these are all allowing the mind to focus on what you don’t want, not what you want. Focusing on the fear will drain your energy and it is counterproductive. That is why fear is so destructive and why despair and hopelessness must be avoided in fear thinking. My husband also calls this “Stinking Thinking”.

We should make up our mind to believe the Word of God when it comes to fear and the promises God holds for us. His perfect love will cast out all fear. What should we focus on? Him and Him alone. As we do, the fears of life will disappear as we grasp the mighty Hand who has it all under control. Our faith grows as we walk with Him. Our trust grows as we depend upon Him and not ourselves. Miracles happen, flesh dies and success follows as we focus on the living and what we can do for His Kingdom. Fear comes from depending upon oneself. The battlefield is in the mind. What we allow in our mind yesterday, creates the reality of today. When negative or fearful thoughts come, we must put our minds to rest because thoughts or what we perceive to be real may be only an illusion. Rely only on one thing, Jesus Christ. Amen.
