Get the point?
Do you ever wonder what it would be like to live life fearlessly? No fear of failure; no fear of ridicule; no fear of suffering or disappointing or falling.
What would it be like if our faith was so strong, our reliance on our God so sure, our walk so purposeful, our talk so truthful, that we feared nothing this world has to throw at us? If we were truly submitted to God, determined to do His will, sold out to serving Him, unabashedly trusting Him . . . without fear? What kind of power would flow through us? What kind of impact and influence would we have on those around us?
Fear cripples and maims our faith. It’s like a bit and harness on a wild horse, restraining the raw beauty and power that God intended.
Hmm, something to think about: Why do I fear? What keeps me from living life without fear?
I want to live fearlessly.
