Fear is both healthy and unhealthy. Crippling fear is dismal.
Healthy fear expresses reverence, respect and obedience to
standard rules and practical application. Acquiring knowledge
with its intended benefits to one self, being careful and
following directions are what it does. Freedom within is enjoyed
without suspicions, doubts, worries and all forms of anxieties.
Crippling fear can manifest in many different ways, like:
> excuse to slackness and rebellion to some people
> lack of knowledge about the matter being afraid of.
> maybe out of an experience from the past.
> maybe because of the environment that raised him/her
up using persuasion by means of fear
> some become very aloof, distant and secluded especially
those fearing for their health and well being.
> uncontrolled imaginations, presumptions & anxieties
> there are many, many more...
The common fears are:
> the fear of the unknown, fear of death, of darkness, of
being alone, fear of hunger, calamity and destruction,
and so forth and so on...
The solution is always fundamental and available:
Jesus Christ is just waiting to be known in the Gospel
and in the Bible. Death is sure to come, so make sure of
your eternal destiny. Faith alone in Christ alone gives
assurance of abode in heaven. God made the darkness
just like He created the light. God Holy Spirit lives inside
of the believers soul, there is no time that Trinity God is
not present. Other fears need to be conquered by studies
and knowing the specific subject because ignorance play
a major role in having many fears. Let us get this up into
our mind. The yardstick for any belief is the word of God.
For besetting fears that continually grip a person, you
may need a counselor, a person you trust or a Christian
psychologist and therapist to help you overcome and be
set free or not be controlled by it. The help is still a process,
some overcame fast, some slowly and some needs a day by
day emotional support and stability.

changing the way the mind thinks by believing and appropriating God's word is the
most effective method to be released from unproductive fear...likewise
