In this post we are going to discuss 4 reasons to stop letting fear kill your dream. Do you have a dream? Have you ever pursued it, are you currently pursing it, or did you give up on it? No matter the situation or the stage you are in, as a Believer, you cannot keep letting fear kill your dream any longer.
You may be at the point where you have just suppressed the dream, dismissed it, or feel the time has passed for you to ever accomplish it.
If God put a dream or desire in your heart, it is certainly within His will, let’s look at 4 Reasons to Stop Letting Fear Kill Your Dream.
2 Timothy 1:7 KJV says, For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
After you read this you won’t have any more excuses to shrink back in fear. Instead look at why nothing is too hard for God and press forward.
Your Dream Will Benefit Others
I know life happens, the bills never stop, children have needs, you must work at your marriage, and the daily grind is a never-ending merry-go-round that has yet to slow down. But, guess what—God gave you a dream and he knew that all of this would be going on before the foundation of the world.
Fear is a thief, and it along with discouragement is used heavily by the enemy. It’s a spirit that God did not give you and it will paralyze you. Fear is set up so that you can doubt God.
You see you can no longer only think about you. It’s time to get on the path God created for you to walk down so that you can get to work on your assignment. You can’t shrink back, because the Holy Spirit will teach you all things and work through you to accomplish what He created you to do.

Detours Are Allowed but Stop Intentionally Delaying the Vision
God will and can take you on a detour like He did the Israelites when He delivered them from Egypt. However, this delay was not originally planned by God for 40 years as it turned out. The way the stiff-necked people (Israelites) treated God, along with Moses and his team—determined how long they stayed in the wilderness. This was their doing.
Please stop believing the lies of the enemy and start believing God. Be who you are created to be and trust the Lord. If you are allowing time to slip by and are continuing to blame it on fear, money, lack of time, an injury, or having kids—it’s time to move past these excuses.
Time is moving forward and so should you.
It’s easy to stay in the comfort zone. When you are too comfortable and fearful, how can you ever witness the full power of the Holy Spirit working through you?
So, vow today that you will get up and clean up your attitude, stop complaining, stop procrastinating and move on with the plan. God has been very patient with you and He loves you enough to have placed a dream in your heart as well as save you from eternal separation from Him.
You Must Get to Know God Deeper
You are a child of the Most High God. You are a child of the KING. The One True Living God has never lost a battle and you are a part of that bloodline. You have the DNA of Jesus Christ and you never have to face anything alone.

Sometimes it can appear that you cannot defeat the giant of fear that is standing in your way, but the battle has already been won!
Since you are operating in fear, it’s time for you to go back to the Word of God and get to know Him deeper. The more you know someone, the more you trust them (or not trust them). God can be trusted, and He can walk you through any fearful situation that you are facing.
Next week we will explore the 4th and final reason. If this post has been a blessing to you, please share it with 2 friends and leave a comment below.
Lean on the Holy Spirit to overcome fear.
Thank God for creating you for a purpose.
Look at yourself and examine why you are so afraid to take action again, even if you tried before and it didn’t work. You must try it again another way.
Soul Vitamin: Remember that you must challenge the thoughts that are flowing in and through your mind. This challenge takes necessary steps toward curing the soul. The way you do this is to get in the Word of God and line the thoughts up with what God is saying. If the thoughts in your mind don’t line up with the truth; please know that they are exposed, deceptive, fraudulent lies that must be removed and blocked from entering into your mind moving forward.
