Fear is how the enemy convinces us to undermine our own future; stunt our own growth; place limits where there are none; create a ceiling where the sky isn’t even the limit.
God did not give us the spirit of fear…
2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Unfortunately, too many times we learn to be afraid of certain things from our parents. My grandmother taught me to be afraid of water. Anytime I got near a lake or river, she would say, “GET AWAY FROM THERE!”
What are you afraid of?
Another race or culture?
Switching from Android to iPhone?
Think about what causes you anxiety. What you try to avoid….your prejudices.
Now, where did your fear come from? And, if you’re a parent, what fears have you passed on to your children?
You can either bless your child, or curse your child. When you teach your child to be afraid, you are cursing them… it becomes a generational curse.
Bless your child with enough confidence in God and Godly wisdom so that they don’t inherit your fears.
