Fear is common. The apostles demonstrated fear. The parents of a blind man were afraid. Paul addressed fear when writing Timothy.
How do we overcome fear?
A few suggestions:
Know God. He gives a spirit of love and power and discipline.
Believe in Christ. If Jesus endured for us, we can overcome for Him.
Study the book. The more we know of God’s word, the greater our confidence in fearful situations.
Fight the good fight. Paul knew the challenges of the work. He also knew he had to fight.
Let us commit ourselves to overcome and lead with passion.
