During my undergraduate years in the Federal University of Technology, Niger State in Nigeria; I was opportune to lead a music team (praise team) at the Fellowship of Christian Students....
About four years ago, I was in a dilemma.
I courted my wife for a year and three months. We started preparations for our wedding which took place in November but in July of the same year, I lost my job.
I was worried about the loss and fear crept into my life.
The fear of “how do I start a new family without a job”
Did I say my wife was a job seeker too? Yes she was, it was not a palatable state at all.
I was so afraid that I wanted to call off the wedding but then I had to pour out my heart to God in the place of prayer and right there, God told me “Son, I do not need to consult your purse or account to do that which I have planned”!
It was as if the word lifted a burden from my heart and since I heard that word, the” fear of the unknown” began to disappear.
Surprisingly, my wedding came out a success and it was debt free. Two months after wedding, I got a job I did not apply for and today my wife and I have changed jobs. Overcoming the fear of the unknown became a blessing.
Dear friends, fear covers our faces from the reality of what God has for us. Whenever you are confronted with the fear of whatsoever, sit down and get a word from God, His word builds up faith that terminates fear just like light terminates darkness!
Stand up and confront your fear, because what you don’t confront you can’t conquer!
