Fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by a threat. Fear has trapped most of us. However the threat that induces fear might vary with age, time and place. Fear demarcates boundaries to one’s abilities.
For example consider a school going boy, he might dread to enter his Principal’s / teacher’s cabin. Yet the same boy would feel free to enter his dad’s cabin. What is the difference? In the student-teacher relationship fear is an influencing factor. While in the father-son relationship fear does not come into play. This is the difference that devises the change in assess.
Likewise, when fear controls us we are bound. Fear prohibits freedom of effort. Fear resides in the faithless. So in order to flee fear, build faith. Only faith on God gives you freedom to put in your best effort and the hope to entrust the result into God’s hands. Complete belief on God’s way will nib away shoots of fear.
