Are you afraid of anything? Are you afraid of another person, a boss, a family member, a spouse, bills coming in, a disease, or death? If so, it’s time to face that fear and conquer it.
Fear is the most debilitating condition known to mankind. It is mental weakness and can lead to feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, poor decision-making and unwise action.
Fear is not to be ignored, glossed over or accepted as a part of life. It is not a part of life. It is an aberration of mortal mind that cries out for a spiritual solution.
And the spiritual solution is to know and understand better the omnipotence and omnipresence of divine Love.
God is all-powerful Love, an ever-present force for good that abundantly gives ideas, inspiration, strength, confidence, courage, wisdom, intelligence and anything else necessary to stay healthy and well, safe and protected from all the claims of evil.
Be sure to side with God, and not with fear, when addressing a pressing situation in your life.
Foes come in many different forms, but each foe is an extension of an underlying belief that evil has power and form, that it can act and do harm.
Fear is what empowers a foe to continue its aggressive course of action.
To conquer the foe, fear of the foe needs to be addressed up front. Once you lose your fear, you’ll see clearly how to defeat the evil that seems to turn a person or condition into a foe. Once the evil has been effectively addressed and stripped of power, the foe will disappear.
Jesus Christ faced his foes fearlessly and defeated their attempts to defeat him. And he did this by mightily siding with God every step of the way.
Don’t fear your foes. Face them with no fear and watch them go away.
I love this simple sentence written by Mary Baker Eddy, “By looking a tiger fearlessly in the eye, Sir Charles Napier sent it cowering back into the jungle” (Science and Health, p. 378).
