Fear can be contagious

I’ve been thinking about Gideon lately & how 300 guys followed him to victory over more than 100,000 enemy soldiers. This very small group had MASSIVE amounts of success but a pre-cursor to their success individually & as a group was the elimination of fear.
Fear can be really loud, it can demand your attention, cripple your progress & thoroughly destroy your future. The guys who followed Gideon into this massive success made choices to not allow fear to control their decisions or behaviors. Indeed, Gideon had to overcome his own fear before he could lead anyone else out of fear & into victory.
Here are some things to help overcome fear:
*look at fear & face it – fear is usually much smaller when you turn & confront it, rather than avoid of deflect it
*make a step forward – fear wants to keep you paralyzed
*listen for Gods voice more than entertaining the voice of fear
*be mindful of conversations or inputs that cater to fear in your life
* never allow fear to be your friend

  1. Hi Sarah,
    Thanks for sharing this today. I was so encouraged as I read it because I have been in the hospital since last sat evening overcoming what the doctors say may be a “cancerous mass” in my abdomen. They have been running a barrage of tests and through it all the Holy Spirit has comforted me with Isaiah 26:3, ” I will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on me.” He has shown me through meditating on the Word that fear is an invader and I must choose to walk by faith and believe god’s report
    no matter what the doctors and the tests results show. I know He promises me long life on this earth and God’s not done with me yet. The best is yet to come! Thanks for posting!
    Blessings to you sister!
