Like pride, fear causes us to reserve control of certain areas of our lives and keep them away from Gods influence. The results can be disastrous.
When a man fears that he may lose something – a few bucks, a feeling of gratification, a relationship, or even a job – because God is calling him to a new way, the best thing for him to do is move against the fear in faith. That way he sends a message to God, himself, and others that God knows better. Period.
Today I will remember that God knows
better than I do. I will move against fear
in faith, and I will release control of every
area of my life to His influence.
