Fear drains our mental health in the areas of our psychological, emotional, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act.
Fear starts off as a thought (image). Next, our emotions (feelings) kick in. Finally fear becomes physical (seen)as we begin to feel perceived danger.
How can we counter attack fear?
Let us start by filtering our thoughts.
- Asking ourselves is this true
- Listening to God’s response
- Overcoming the feeling of fear by obeying God’s solution
- Declaring God’s word over the situation
- Trusting in Him
“You did not create me to worry
You did not create me to fear
but You created me to worship daily
So Ima leave it all right here” (Anthony Brown and Group Therapy Lyrics: Trust in You).
