Getting Back to Intimacy

I love God’s grace, because as we wonder off into the teachings and opinions of others and slightly stray from our intimacy with Jesus, Father God and Holy Spirit, He lightly warns us.
Do you hear the warning?
As I continue my battle with the sin of fear.
I write down scripture after scripture from the Bible on why I should not fear.
Fear including worry and anxious thoughts.
It’s all ROOTED in fear.
Like those “super healthy people” (as I like to refer to them), you know the ones that talk a lot about “getting to the root of the cause of the health issue.”
I am kind of like them, but a believer in healing the soul and that also entails getting to the root and digging it out (ps. this sometimes hurts) BUT man does it have AMAZING results on the other side.
Fear is the (root) cause of all of the following:
1. Insecurity
2. Inadequacy
3. Inferiority Complex
4. Timidity
5. Worry/Anxiety
6. Sensitivity
7. Fear of Authority
8. Terror
9. Trauma
10. Torment/Horror
11. Nightmares
12. Panic Attacks
13. Phobias
14. Nervousness
15. Abandonment
16. Procrastination
As I pray, journal and write, I cry out to the Lord “this fear, it has me trapped, I am stuck, I can’t get out.”
He kindly reminds me of 2 things!
1. The only thing Biblically you are allowed to fear is ME!
yikes: I know this–
2. Fear is a sin–
it is an addiction, no different than food, alcohol, drugs or porn.
Fear is a sin, and you are addicted to it, Lindsay.
It is not a disease Lindsay; it’s a sin and you, my little overcomer, can conquer it because of Jesus setting you free from the slavery of sin. (Romans 8:2). Treat fear like sin Lindsay. Treat it like an addiction because it is.
It’s not ok Lindsay, even though it feels valid, you are enslaved, and I have a better way for you. Freedom is available. I know you don’t know life without it, but I promise if you trust me I will show you the way out. But you can’t trust me if you don’t know me. I am your good Shepard walk with me Lindsay let me show you the way to greener pastures.
{My name is Lindsay, and I am addicted to FEAR}
Fear is comfortable for me; I can hide behind it.
Most of us have some addiction, be it people pleasing, work, ministry (or the typical ones I mentioned above)
But be careful to let ANYTHING take the place of your intimate, personal relationship with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. The lie we are believing is that fear will protect us, but it is quite the opposite, fear will keep us from all God has for us, and the truth is GOD is the one who will protect us! Stay close to Him!
He warned me about it, and I think He wants me to remind you!

  2. Yeah, I agree that a person should develop a deeper relationship with God. When we wake up, we face so many challenges. Each challenge consumes our minds, but I try to focus more on the word. You know the Devil wants to kill and destroy God’s plan for our lives. However, we already have the victory. Just confess it.
