i think that it is safe to say that we live in a pretty frightful world. it can be scary sometimes which makes it really easy to be fearful. but we have NO reason to fear.
Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not. d&c 6:36
Faith and doubt cannot exist in the same mind at the same time, for one will dispel the other. -Thomas S. Monson
we can’t let fear paralyze us. we can’t let fear decide. fear is not of God. one of my favorite scriptures is found in 2 timothy chapter 1 verse 7 that explains this well.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear ; but of power , and of love , and of a sound mind.
don’t be afraid! if you are living worthy of the Holy Ghost then you have NO reason to fear. trust in the Lord. give Him your fear and be fearless. (i am not referring to jumping off things or doing something stupid) what i am trying to say is that you don’t need to not do something because of fear. because of a tiny worry in your heart that something might go wrong. trust. believe. live worthy of the companionship of the Holy Ghost and you need not fear.
that scripture in 2 timothy really helped me understand that when i am fearful it’s not coming from God, but from the adversary. as long as you are keeping the commandments and are listening to the Holy Ghost you will be okay. become fearless by giving your fear to God. don’t miss out on so much during your life because of fear. don’t worry about if something “might” happen because chances are it won’t happen.
