Fear is a paralyzing, debilitating disease. I call it a "disease" not because it is the result of a germ, but because of the word itself, "dis-ease." Fear creates dis-ease within us, and once it has us off balance, it begins to take over our lives. The more fear you have, the more you have. It lives off itself.
What fears do you suffer from? Heights, closed-up spaces, getting old, disability, senility? Do you fear change, failure, being rejected in love, loss of health or job? How about fear of death?
Fear is a thief. It steals from us. It is your enemy.
But there is an antidote to fear. It is trust. No wonder the Bible says 365 times, "Don’t be afraid."
