What are the lies/fears we tell ourselves that hold us back? For me, it is the fear of ill health. Renee Fisher in her book on p. 23 says, ” We don’t have to cower in a spirit of fear. Instead, we can learn through the power of the Holy Spirit to discipline our minds and accept God’s love. That love is stronger than any situation we find ourselves in. Knowing this we can throw off the lies that kept us back!
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off
everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.
And let us run with perseverance the race marked our for us,
fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith (Hebrews 12: 1-2)
What do you think? Do you think our fears hold us back. Can the Holy Spirit help us learn to accept God’s love?
