The importance of our allowing the Holy Spirit to change the way we think…
[NOTE: The word REPENT, in Greek metanoéō, means to change the way we think]
The Bible tells us to fear NOT and be anxious for NOTHING!
Here’s a quote taken from John Wayne, in a movie called “In Harms Way” (1965), that tells it like it is,
“All battles are fought by brave men, who are scared and would rather be some place else.”
Fear and apprehension are a part of life; and the things you worry about appear to be real (FEAR = False Evidence Appearing to be Real).
However the fact is many of us allow our fears to torture us with thoughts and scenarios that just aren’t in touch with reality, and 90+ percent of the things we worry about never come to pass.
All that worrying is just a waste of our time, that does not change our circumstances at all, and the worrying only causes us harm.
So what’s the solution?
As Believers, we are NOT to allow our fears to control us; we are instructed rather to live by faith and not by sight, learning to cast our cares upon God (1 Pet 5:7).
Listen to what God said to Joshua, after Moses was graduated to Glory and God was handing off Moses’ baton and mantle to Joshua:
