Facing Your Fears
In Mark Chanski’s book, “Womanly Dominion-More than a Gentle and Quiet Spirit”, he discusses how to face your fears based on Psalms 46, 27, and 23. On pages 186 he writes, “This is what a woman of dominion will do when assaulted by crippling fears about what might happen in days to come:
Do what you are responsibly able to do.
The horse is prepared for the day of battle,
but victory belongs to the LORD (Proverbs 21:31).
Stare your worst fears right in the eye.
The wicked flee when no one is pursuing,
but the righteous are bold as a lion (Proverbs 28:1)
Experience liberation from paralyzing fears.
You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32).”
Many of our fears are about the future and include “what if’s”. God tells us in his word to fear not. Here are just a few verses:
So we may boldly say The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me? Hebrews 13:6
For I, the LORD your God, will hole your right hand, Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.” Isaiah 41:13
Say to those who are fearful hearted, Be strong, do not fear! Isaiah 35:4
I am so excited to include a video in my post. I hope you enjoy it. I think it is beautiful.
What is it that you are fearing? Cast your care on him for He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the LORD (Psalm 31:24).
