There is a saying, ‘a deer in headlights’, and I’m sure you have heard it but in case you haven’t it’s when a deer sees the lights from a car it can leave them frozen because they maybe feel caught off guard. They feel stuck and don’t know if they should go forward or go backward, or even it’s put them in a state of shock.
Sometimes our life challenges can bring on a similar message of fear….
Maybe you are thinking about making a bold change and move out of the state you live in, or maybe it’s a new job you are going after. You have this opportunity to make more money but right now you have a job that feels comfortable and stable. You know the job that is being offered will give you a fresh new start and an opportunity to learn something new, but you can’t shake off that fear of making the wrong decision.
So, what is the one thing in your life that has you debilitated with fear?
Something that you avoid, run from, you don’t want to face?
I want to encourage you today to face it, face it with knowing that God is on your side. He is always there and will never leave your side, but you have to know it, and lean to him. One of my favorite scriptures is Exodus 14:14 that promises “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
May you be covered in the armor of God and be filled with the holy spirit, In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
