During the past few weeks when I felt down with an illness, and thank God I’m back again, I had the nudge in my spirit to ask this “what is my greatest fear?” At that time I felt I was going to die! That was my greatest fear then. And a lot of things that were happening around got me confused and petrified. I felt scared about loosing my family and our properties or anybody or thing dear to me.Even before I gained admission into the university, I had the deepest fear that I’ll fail myself, family, friends and even God! Fear-fear-fear of the unknown due to circumstances.
As alarming as it might seem, it is sad to announce that no matter how we try to brush it, we all have our deepest fear and doubts. For some, its death, loss of wealth or properties and business, loss of security, loss of primary and basic needs…a whole lot more. Well, I realised that we fear bad occurrences because we don’t want it to happen! What we actually fear, is what happens after. We are all humans and have emotions and right to feel what we feel. But, everything in life has an expiring date: both living and non-living cannot live forever; that’s certain. There’s only one thing that will and ever always be eternal forever; I’ll get back to that.
Back to the fear part, we fear about what will happen but what will really happen after? What will happen if I lose my loved ones, what will happen if I’m broke or without a source of living? What will happen if I fall incurably sick? What if? what if…? Have you ever thought of the aftermath? After death; judgement. No wealth poverty. No security; danger! So that’s what we actually fear!
The only way you can get past these weird fears and feelings is trust and then faith in GOD. No matter what, we will face challenges that’ll incite fear. No matter how we try to box it, death does exist. And there’s heaven and hell! Bad things do happen, it’s to whom it concerns it affects. Sometimes, we wonder why a loving God allow all these things to happen. But I’ve you ever wondered why we don’t try to get and understand that good has given us a free will of choice of what happens to us? Why can’t we resolve in our hearts that there is no other way we can obtain ultimate happiness without the supreme being God in existence in your life? That is why people still go through the bad things they go through. That is why people still go to hell. Because they don’t come to God! everything, every single thing in this life will pass and fade away, everything: the money, beauty, intellect…everything! But just one thing which I mentioned earlier-GOD’S WORD! It’s the TRUTH that will stand and the only way to get it is through Jesus Christ Matthew 24 vs 35.
You know it’s actually easier and stress-free living the good and comfortable life void of fears and worries! That beautiful package comes in Christ only. It is time to get rid of your deepest fear- ridiculous doubts and throw in the trowel to God saying, “Lord i’m yours!” Try it! Well, even if it’s once. Maybe now at this moment, you can stop and pray this prayer in your heart (sorry it’s a little bit commanding but please try it, God’s ready to help you!
“Lord, I accept the fact that I’m nothing before you, since you’re my maker, there’s nothing I can hide from you. Have your way in my life, I lay down my everything to you. I need your help…I need you now more than ever! And show me your mercy. LORD YOU’RE ALL WE NEED IN OUR GREATEST AND DEEPEST FEAR! Thanks for we know you’ve answered us and await in faith for results! AMEN!
Oh what peace and joy will flood your heart if you’ve truthfully done this ! God bless you! Keep enjoying your new life in Christ without fears! HAKUNA MATATA!
