Fear is not okay. It robs us of the abundant life God made available to us through the sacrifice of Jesus.

The fear of getting hurt stops some of us from getting into a relationship with another person. Fear stops some of us from enjoying vacations because of a fear of flying or getting on a cruise. Fear of being turned down stops some of us from putting in for a promotion. Fear of failing stops some of us from starting a business.

We can allow fear to hinder our lives or trust God for a favorable outcome when we face our fears. Either way, it’s up to us. God’s not going to make us deal with our fears or love us any less if we have fear in our lives. Fear reveals an area where we don’t trust God completely.

Be free from the bondage of fear and enjoy the life God wants you to have.

But Jesus overheard them and said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just have faith.”
Mark 5:36 NLT
