But it’s not necessarily a bad idea to address any known fear.
It prepares you to face other fears.
I didn’t have to jump out of an airplane. But, I faced a fear. I addressed a personal fear and now, the thought of doing it again gives me far less anxiety.
I’ve learned over the years that God assignments are likely to bring me fear. Each assignment seems bigger than the last.
I’m not alone. Throughout the Bible God called people to incredible tasks and the most common reaction was fear.
God calls people to tasks which are big, seemingly impossible and scary. (Ever been a church planter?)
You’ll probably never completely eliminate fear from your life. The world is full of the unknown. I encourage you, however, to face some of your personal fears…even the ones you don’t have to face.
You’ll be more willing and better prepared to face the fears that come from the assignments God brings into your life.
