For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

2 Timothy 1:7

Are you a person of FEAR or FAITH?

Fear says “What if it doesn’t work”. Faith says “What if it does work.” Which statement do you mostly verbalize?

Our guest speaker at Revive Conference, Caroline Barnett, gave an amazing testimony about what our life looks like if we allow fear to get in the way. If she allowed fear to stop her from ministering to oppressed children on the streets, a young 8 year old boy would have never had the chance for healing and escape a horrific situation of sodomy. This story was difficult to receive, but it provided a great visual picture of the missed opportunity to impact lives because our fear reigned more than our faith.

I personally have an assignment in my ministry, but fear often creeps in telling me “what if it doesn’t work.” I am reminded of Caroline’s story to remove myself, because when we do, we find ourselves on the other side of fear!  God does not give us a spirit of FEAR, He gives us the POWER to conquer our fear.

Is there something God is asking you to do, but you can’t move because your paralyzed by fear? Tell your mind and visualize in your mind, “what if it DOES work.”  Let’s learn the great lesson spoken by Caroline Barnett…

Don’t allow your fear to lose an opportunity to change and impact our world.
