Fear of the Future
It is common for many people to fear the future, especially when there is change involved. Starting a new job, moving to a new location or doing something new are all contributors to stress and fear of the unknown,
Fear is a very powerful natural emotion. It can paralyse you and totally muddle your thinking and actions. It makes you tired and confused.
If you possibly can, try to calm down, take deep breaths and analyse the situation. It’s not easy or always possible admittedly – but in some cases it can help.
Seek help. You should not bottle things up and worry alone. Confide in someone you trust.
Fear of the unknown is very natural. The best cure for fear is faith and the belief that there is someone up there caring for you. Don’t let fear lead you away from God. Fear is evil’s way of driving a wedge between you and God. It saps your trust and faith in Him. Remember, Christ has defeated evil.
“I have told you this so that you will have peace by being united to me. The world will make you suffer. But be brave! I have defeated the world!” (John Chapter 16 Verse 33).
So do not be afraid; you are worth much more than many sparrows. (Luke Chapter 12 – Verse 6 and Matthew Chapter 10 – Verse 31).
And I will be with you always, to the end of the age. (Matthew Chapter 28 – Verse 20).
