Fear feels uncomfortable, but in most cases, it won’t really harm you – but attempting to avoid your anxiety will because you are robbing yourself of the chance to experience the deep satisfaction which comes with listening to your heart and soul and creating a better life fill of passion and purpose. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and want to overcome the fears of today, it’s important that you are confident in God and His Word.
The issue here is putting aside our perpetual life long self controlling desire to be in charge. The reality of this overwhelming and confusing and preventa us the mature spiriruality to ground ourselves in God’s absolutes. As much as we are logically driven to know and accept the evidence but coming to terms with ourselves is the greatest battle we face. We hear the continuous complaints of the brokenness of the world and the evil that sustains it. We ask ourselves how do we face this turmoil that is constantly beating at our doors.
The irony of that excuse is the exact problem facing the world. The evil we complain about is not from the animals that roam the jungles, nor the birds that fly in the sky. It is from man himself. Highly likely the same man who is staring you in the face asking that same question about himself as well. Our objectivity has been skewed from the reality by allowing ourselves excuses to avoid the truth that the only reason the world is inundated with so much uncertainties and hidden fears is because of ourselves.
The Christian worldview challenges you and not the world. It reveals to you that that evil and brokenness is within you. It has nothing to do with the world around you. Whatever is around you is broken because of the mass exodus of humanity into a illusion of stability and pleasures that stir our soul to seek it. Christianity convicts you to look within yourself and not your outside.
Don’t be fooled by self righteous individuals who proclaim salvation by their views when it is how you see yourselves grounded in a relationship with the divine that matters and not the views of others. I doubt they are the gate keepers on the day of reckoning. It is in our trust in the ‘Truth’ revealed by God Himself, who loved us to the point of dying for us, even when our ‘selves’ were not worth saving. It is the same divine being who brought the standard of life and a light to shine a pathway and the presence of Himself through all our trials and tribulations.
It is the trust in a God, that without compromise in His own absolutes delivered justice. Justice upon Himself to save us.
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” (Jeremiah 17: 7-8).
