Let me start off by saying that I am no stranger to Fears. From Fear of social situations to the point of Agoraphobia, to Fears of what others thought about me, to Fears of trying new things, I was a Fearful wreck.
My main Fear was a "Fear of man," meaning other people and their opinions of me. What others thought about me dictated what I did or did not do.
You may completely understand that, or may be dealing with something totally different, but the solution is still the same.
I think the greatest help was two things-
1- Relying only on my Identity in Christ.
This gave me strength and courage to face any one, and any and all situations with ability and confidence.
2- This Scripture: "Perfect love casts out Fear," 1 John 4:18.
When we know, I mean *really* know, and embrace in our heart, not just our head, that God loves us so greatly and deeply, we realize that we are SAFE. Perfect love makes you SAFE. Fear is the opposite feeling of safe. Set your mind on how safe you are because there is a Perfect Love holding and keeping you.
This takes time. Your Trauma that brought you to a place of Fear, takes some time to work on. Your heart, mind, and emotions have to get into agreement with each other. You must set your mind on the fact that you are safe, you can trust God, and it's going to be OK, even though it might not feel like it.
Taking your thoughts CAPTIVE is a big part of Overcoming Fear. That is just one of my 3 Cs. The other two are COMMUINCATE well and COPE well.
So, you need to stop suffering in silence about your deepest Fears, and COMMUNICATE just how hurt and broken you are, so that a caring individual like myself, can come along side of you, to help you Heal and Grow.
You must develop Healthy Coping skills as well. Unhealthy Coping looks like suffering in silence and dealing with Fear by covering it up.
Let's get to the root of what you are afraid of and why. I'll bet that root started as a seed a long time ago because you believed a lie about yourself, others, or God, and now you're trapped in Fear.
You will know the Truth, and the Truth will make you free. Freedom from Fear is ultimately a Truth encounter, coupled with the 3 Cs- COMMUNICATE well, COPE well, and take every thought CAPTIVE. You've got to do your part, and God will do His.
I am hopeful for you! I Overcame so many Fears that my own mother doesn't even recognize the person that I am today. I'm not a rare exception, I'm living proof that you can too.
