God desires that we continually progress or get better in everything we do. That we strive to reach new and higher levels as we grow in the strength that Christ has given us. Sometimes though, as soon as we make a decision to step out in faith and obey God, the enemy throws fear into the ring to try to stop us. He brings in thoughts like, "What if I fail? What if I lose? What will others think of me? He might even say you don't have what it takes." Believe me, the enemy will do his best to use fear to try to convince us to give up, throw in the towel and quit.
The Bible says though that fear is a spirit. That fear plays on our emotions and holds us back from the victory that God has for us. But the good news is that we have power over fear! The Bible says that perfect love casts out all fear. When we receive God and God's perfect love, we will have the confidence we need in the future because we know God’s plans are for good. Understand that fear is a lie. Choose to believe God's Word and receive His love so that you can overcome fear and move forward into the good life God has prepared for you as you continue the good fight of faith. Remember, it’s called a fight for a reason. However we fight from victory not for victory. Keep fighting!
