Starve Your Fears

If you’ve ever been to the zoo, you’ve likely seen a sign that says something like, “Don’t feed the crocodiles.” Why? Because when you feed them, they become dangerous. The same is true of fear. Fear is only dangerous if you feed it. It’s a peace robber. 

But when you starve fear, it becomes smaller and smaller until it doesn’t even exist in your life. 

To starve your fears and feed faith, try the following: 

  • Put God’s Word in your eyes and in your ears on a continual basis.  

  • Throughout the day, pay attention to what you’re thinking about. Is it true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, and worthy of praise? If it is, “the God of peace will be with you” (see today’s reading).  

  • Refuse to feed fear. Fear food includes secular media, news, and people who speak fear and negativity. Remove these things from your life, and go on a fear-free diet!  

  • Guard your words. If you are believing for something, don’t say anything contrary to the promises God has given you concerning it. 

When you starve your fears and feed your faith, you can live in perfect peace—no matter what is going on around you!
