Using Your Words to Empower Your F.E.A.R
Many people believe that the Bible and Psychology contradict one another; however, they actually compliment one another. In a recent article on PsychCentral titled, "Self As Doer", the writer discusses a recent study that discusses the benefits of identifying oneself with a desired action. Instead of saying, "I am going to ....", say this instead, "I am...". This concept compliments the biblical scriptures that speaks on the importance of speaking faith-filled words to change your circumstances.
To develop your F.E.A.R, you need to become conscious of those words you speak to yourself and to others. Your words are containers of power that can either propel you towards your future or hold you back from achieving success. How you use your words can promote "False Evidence Appearing Real"; creating anxiety towards taking any action towards positive life changes.Your words can be "Faith-filled Evidence Activating Reality" motivating you to take the necessary steps towards making a successful future. With every word (conscious or subconscious), you are guiding your walk on the path towards your future. Your words are the deciding factor in the path that you will take.
The following scriptures speak to the importance of using faith-filled words to change your reality.
1. Hebrews 11:1-10Common English Bible
(CEB)Description of faith
Faith is the reality of what we hope for, the proof of what we don’t see.
2. 2 Corinthians 4:13 Common English Bible (CEB)13 We have the same faithful spirit as what is written in scripture: I had faith, and so I spoke.[a] We also have
faith, and so we also speak.
3. Mark 11:23-24 Common English Bible (CEB)23 I
assure you that whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be
lifted up and thrown into the sea’—and doesn’t waver but believes that what is said will really happen—it will happen.24 Therefore I say to you, whatever you pray
and ask for, believe that you will receive it, and it will be
so for you.
So, to develop your F.E.A.R, you should change those thoughts or ideas that contradict what you desire to change. Use positive affirmations that build confidence in your ability to overcome hardships. If you desire to promote health and growth in your emotional maturity, you can say, "I am changing the way that I eat; instead of eating junk food to comfort me, I am eating healthy to improve my health." You can also build your confidence to overcome difficult situations by declaring, "I am an overcomer who speaks to the mountains in my life, and those mountains have to be removed." These statements help you to release your faith in your ability to make positive changes in your life.
