I Wanna Fear Not

While listening to the Newsboys latest song, "Live with Abandon" today I admit I sarcastically thought in my head, "Easier said than done."  Well, maybe I wasn't really sarcastic.  

I realized the lyrics say I WANT to live with Abandon.  

 

I wanna live with abandon

Give You all that I am

Every part of my heart Jesus

I place in Your hands

I wanna live with abandon

 

Okay now that's better.  I want that too.  But, there are days I don't know how. 

I read this in an old journal yesterday.  Not sure who said it, or wrote it, but I managed to scribble it down and thankful 3 years later.  

"Deep rooted fear in our lives cause us to play it too safe and miss out on this adventurous life that God has called us to." 

 Yep.  Been there.  Done that.  Ready to move forward.  I want the adventure! Oh God, I don't want to be debilitated by fear!  Yes Newsboys, "I wanna live with abandon". Oh God, please help me. 

I read that "Fear Not" is the most common command in the Bible. That must because God knows we need to hear that over and over and over again. It read that it's mentioned more than 365 times. God, provided a reminder every day of the year to Fear Not, plus a few extras for a really scary day. So, His mercies are new every morning, and he reminds us not to be afraid every morning.

How do we do this? I believe there is superhero power that will help you, "Fear Not!" and rise above every limiting condition in your life.  I believe that this miraculous power that can set you free from fear is a relationship with Jesus. You can be courageous, if you let Him in. Every. Single. Day.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” -Joshua 1:9

Father, transform us into people that fear not! Help us face fear daily, trusting You.
