“He said, ‘I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself’” (Genesis 3:10).
The shame and guilt of sin leads to a debilitating form of fear that imprisons and deprives one of the redeeming work of restoration and renewal that God desires to accomplish in our lives. We must not view fear as a giant that cannot be overcome but as a shadow we must go through. Any fear that goes unchallenged becomes a barrier to our future. Everything we desire in life lies on the other side of fear. What would your life look like today if you decided to live unafraid? It’s not just possible; it’s necessary.
