Releasing ourselves from fear is like escaping from a prison. Actually breaking out would be scary, will we make it? Will we be caught? It’s hard work and feels dangerous. Are they after me? What will freedom feel like? Will I always feel like I’m on the run? But however scary it may be continuing to languish in the prison of is not God’s desire for any of us. God doesn’t want you to be fearful. God has given us the tools of trust, love, faith, friends etc. that we can use to set ourselves free. That doesn’t mean that it will be easy but it will be so worth while.
