The debilitating kind of fear hisses in your ear, “I can’t,” and, “What if….” Does this fear paralyze you, holding you back from taking healthy risks?
What if every Christian missionary paid attention to that voice? What if every soldier listened to that fear and failed to enlist in the Armed Forces?
Fear is healthy to a limited extent, but most of the time, it stunts our growth and keeps us from living out God’s purpose. It’s the dragon blowing hot air in your face when you hold a sword and shield. Fear doesn’t belong in your life.
