I did. I could feel my heart beating uncontrollably due to fear. It is not until a friend of mine came along and secures it skillfully.
How often do we allow fear to have a firm hold on us, making us idle and fearful? I locked my attention solely on the snake, forgetting the fact that my friend wouldn’t have left it with me if he knew it would hurt me. Doesn’t that feel familiar in our walk with God?
The more you dwell and focus on your fear, the more it’ll control you to and stops you from living a fearless victorious life knowing God is in control and that HE wouldn’t set you in for a sure failure.
How often do we orchestrate scenarios in our mind before we take any step further and realize most of those scenarios didn’t happen at all when the dreaded times come?
Let’s be reminded that :
2 Timothy 1:7 -God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
1 Peter 5:8 - We ought to be self-controlled and alert as your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
