When you overcome fear, you become dangerous

My pastor, Rob Scribner, tried out for professional football to prove he couldn’t do it.

He just liked it. But he thought he wasn’t good enough. Because of hard work, he wound up on the team, playing for the then-LA Rams from 1973 to 1976. A lot of other guys didn’t even try out because they thought they wouldn’t make it.

Fear of failure is a major problem. Whatever you long to do but are afraid of doing, that is what you should do.

If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves. — Thomas Edison

The explosion of “fantasy” — sports, Second Life, etc. — is illustrative. People want more but are afraid to live it.

Christian, when you overcome fear, you become dangerous to the devil.

  1. Challenging πŸ™‚ Amen!

  2. Absolutely! This is the same thing I was talking about today!

  3. I want to be really dangerous! And I want to be wherever those waterfalls are, too! I could be really dangerous there (kidding). Loved your post, Mike!

  4. Excellent way to share how important it is to trust GOD and move towards the things we were created to do not the easy stuff. I enjoyed your post thank you.

  5. Love it. For God has not give us the spirit of fear.

  6. Amen… DANGEROUS! Great post Mike x

  7. I like this one very much. πŸ™‚

  8. πŸ™‚ Great post. Great reminder. And love overcomes fear.

  9. Amen. This is a great post. And it’s just amazing not having that terrible sick feeling of fear hanging over you. But the devil targets such people. The fearful he doesn’t bother with.

  10. Proof that fear of failure is not an option in life! Our lives are in His hands.

  11. I absolutely love the waterfall and wouldn’t mind at all spending sometime there listening to the roar. I also appreciate the word ‘fantasy”. Much that I write and live feels like a fantasy, that is true, but only seen with God eyes, as I hope I walk causiously with conscious being fully aware and awake.

  12. Thanks for the reminder. Many a times, fear has taken the driver’s seat… now we know better πŸ™‚

  13. (2 Timothy 1:7 But the Spirit God gives us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. ) Isn’t that fantastic news? No wonder the darkness shrinks back.

  14. “Christian, when you overcome fear, you become dangerous to the devil.” That’s my goal!!
