Don't Fight Your Fears, Face Them!

By Gboyega Adedeji       Nov 27, 2014


Don

Life is the uniform endowment of every living creature of God; however, how each creature maximizes the gift of life is a function of the disposition of such creature towards the issues of life. In life, we are daily faced with fears; and how fulfilled we end up is a product of our stance with, for, against or over our fears.

For indeed, when we came to Macedonia, our bodies had no rest, but we were troubled on every side. Outside were conflicts, inside were fears. Nevertheless, God, who comforts (reassures) the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus.

2 Corinthians 7:5-6

To most people, Apostle Paul was a fearless servant of Christ; however, by this Scripture, we understand that he had fears. Furthermore, we know that fears are not "the hardwares"; but “the softwares” – fears are from the inside. And that makes it a bit difficult to deal with one’s fears.

An average person would not think twice before he either runs from his fears or, he fights his fears. But the two are almost the same, and they often result into the same outcome. Running from your fears does not imply the disappearance of your fears; but your own disappearance from achieving great things. Your fears are not there to help you do great things, but to stop you from doing great things. Hence, fighting your fears could imply taking a defensive or attacking stand against your fears. The weakness of such stand is that it does not guarantee progress. You may win, and you may lose. Usually, when we fight against our fears, we may end up postponing the battles; and thus, stretch further, the likelihood of progress.

Look at the birds of the air; their greatest fears are the hills and mountains – a fearful bird could refuse to fly because of the danger of hitting hard against the hill side and dying. However, a bird that wants to fulfil its desires in spite all odds, will soar higher than the hills. Your fears could be real like the hills; but facing them is like soaring higher than them.

After observing the birds for a while, I discovered that the birds are aware of the hills; but are not afraid of them. What is it that you fear most in life, such thing could be real; but if you can soar higher than it; you will go far in life to your unique destiny.

For those who think that fears are not real; I submit that they are real – but do not avoid or run from them or try to resist them. Instead, face them and rise above them. Set a standard for yourself that is beyond your fears. No matter how high your fears might be, they have height limits; therefore, go higher and fulfil your dreams.

Are they ministers of Christ? – I speak as a fool – I am more: in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often.

2 Corinthians 11:23

Those were the words of a man who did not fight his fears; but faced them. No wonder, his influence is still widespread almost 2000 years after he departed the earth. You too can do great and amazing things – you only need to go higher than those fears!
