It is vitally important in our world today that we begin to let go of all the ways that fear grips us. Yusef tells us that it might feel like jumping into the unknown, leaving the place we have grown comfortable with, but that jump into the safety net of peace is well worth attempting. We only need the faith of a small child–that the Father who loves us will keep us safe.
Fear is insidious, infecting and affecting the entire being. It causes emotional and physical reaction. The realization of the fearful state is the first step toward release of that fear.
Fear need not be “driven out”. It does not have that kind of power. Fear is a symptom that indicates or covers an unwell state. It can simply be released and it will be gone. Many hold on to fear, possibly because they have not known the alternative—PEACE.
Releasing fear is like jumping over a chasm or from a building with all the safety precautions in place, and the chance of injury is nil. But the land or the building are known and there is some comfort in that knowing, however uncomfortable the place.
Faith is the key to the release of fear—faith that the Father loves you enough to keep you safe.
