The Key to Overcoming Fear
Fearful Woman - The Key to Overcoming Fear "OK, background players," announced the assistant director through the bullhorn, "this scene is supposed to be hairy and scary. You're trapped in a bad flight that has hit rough air. You are victims-got that?"

At the time I was working as a screen extra for a TV movie. It was early morning, and I was fresh and eager to give my all to the "hairy and scary" scene. "Lights, camera, action!"

Soon the mock airplane was alive with victims-with some (including me) gyrating violently in our seats, creating the illusion of turbulence. Gripping the sides of my passenger chair, I imagined a series of worst-case scenarios to help me with the scene: What if the bumps get worse? How worse? Would I survive?

"Cut!" yelled the voice through the megaphone. "Nice job of fear-but let's do it again, only with more fear."

Hours and many retakes later, I emerged tired and drained. Days later when faced with a real-life crisis, a dental emergency, I found myself imagining: What if I need surgery? How can I afford it? Will I financially go under? Again, I wound up tired and drained from the worst-case scenarios going through my head.

Over the years from reading God's Word, I have discovered that you and I are to be "casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ" (2 Cor. 10:5, NKJV). In fact, Jesus has admonished us not to worry about tomorrow (see Matt. 6:25-34). read more

DAILY DEVOTIONALS
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land.
Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth, may Israel now say: Many a time have they afflicted me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.
