Worry and Fear

There are dangerous times ahead, no doubt about that. We live in the End times, meaning that we will see things come to pass that no others have or will. There will be much destruction, persecution, and suffering all around us, and many people will lose hope. However, do not be afraid. It will do you no good to worry about what is to come. Instead, focus on maturing in your relationship with Christ. That must be your first priority. Yes, it will be hard to lay worldly things down (I am still finishing that up myself), but you must do it. When your resolve wavers, when you are tempted to fall back into an old sin, rebuke those thoughts and keep on going. Remember, the things in this world are temporary, and filled with empty promises. And though this present world is coming to an end, the eternal Kingdom is only beginning. Ungodly fear and worry are hindrances on your path. They will stop you from a relationship with the Lord, and will eat at you and wreck havoc on your life. So, then, you must cast out all thoughts of fear, as they are sent by the devil to stop you in your tracks. 

Refrences: 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out all fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love
