Freedom from Fear

• Greg Boyd

Moses put aside his fears and carried out the mission God had for him. We too can do great things for God if we are willing to override our apprehension. We can say, “So what?” to our fears and follow the Spirit.

Had Moses let his fears rule (Exodus 3-8), he never would have followed God’s instructions to go to Egypt and win freedom for his people. He would not be the important Biblical figure we know of today.

But Moses put aside his fears and carried out the mission God had for him.

We too can do great things for God if we are willing to override our apprehension. We can say, “so what?” to our fears and follow the Spirit.

2 Timothy 1:7 tells us: “For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-discipline. “ If we give in to our fears, we will be following a spirit other than God’s. We will cut short the potential and power God has for us. So much power is available to us, if only we would only reach out and trust God.

If we focus on the possibility of criticism from other people, we will fail to take risks. If our focus is on Jesus, anything is possible. (Luke 1:37)

"My counselor zeroed in on the root causes of my anxiety, explaining the mechanisms of why I was feeling the way I was, and what to do about it. She was very loving and compassionate and approached my situation with a technical mindset as well. A very rare combination."
