How To Overcome Fear
by Katopeka Nkhoma
3/21/2017 / Self Help
- You are DESTINED to be great. 2017 is a year of greatness.
- We are flying high in 2017, so fasten your seatbelts and take this amazing journey with us.
- There are 4 basic forces at work on everything that gets airborne. Two of those forces are the "downward" forces of gravity and drag. Basically these resist flight and have to be overcome.
Fear is a function of ignorance. Once you get to know the new neighbour, the fear goes away. Once you realise that there is nothing lurking in the shadows the fear goes away.
"So how do I overcome fear of the unknown? Like the new year?" Good question.
Hosea 4:6My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Someone has done what you want to do and has achieved what you want to achieve; learn from them. If you can't learn from proximity, learn from their stories, books, videos, e.t.c. Learn how they overcame their giants, learn how they navigated the rough seas. Learn, learn, learn!
2. Know Yourself
John 1:19 — 23A Voice in the WildernessNow this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.”And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?”He said, “I am not.”“Are you the Prophet?”And he answered, “No.”Then they said to him, “Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?”He said: “I am‘The voice of one crying in the wilderness:“Make straight the way of the Lord,” ’ as the prophet Isaiah said.”
John knew he was meant to be a voice in the wilderness and he stuck to that. He could have become big headed and eaten in palaces and mansions but he didn't. He knew that would compromise his mission. Many times we compromise our mission because we don't know who we are. We involve ourselves in things we shouldn't.
We all have to answer the question John answered, "who are you?"
The answer to this question also unlocks your potential, strength and inner power. Many people fail in life because they don't know what they carry inside. They despise themselves.
Numbers 13:30 — 31Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.”But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.”
3. Know Your God
Daniel 11:32Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.
With these three points I believe you will overcome whatever fears you may have. Whatever it is you fear, like Goliath it is not invincible. You are well able to overcome it.
