Life Beyond Fear
Life Beyond Fear
By: Nate Holcomb
Fear is a thief and a robber, taking by stealth and by force one of your most priceless commodities: confidence. In fact, fear is faith perverted and misplaced. Though governed by the same principles, faith's confidence rests in God, while fear trusts in the inevitability of the worst possible outcome. But you can be delivered from all your fears. Your journey through this book will teach you how to obliterate the fears that have long plagued you - facing them, tracing them, erasing them, and replacing them with faith. When faith is present, fear is powerless and confidence is at optimum levels. So let's begin this journey toward an unrestricted life, filled with potential, unabated by fear.
Fear is timeless. It’s been around since the beginning of time. Indeed, it’s found in the third chapter of the very first book of the Bible—Genesis—when Adam hid from God because he was afraid. The psalmist David wrote about being delivered from all his fear, in Psalm 34:4. That presents the question: “Is it even possible to live fear-free in a fearful world?” The answer is an emphatic, “Yes!”
Regardless of ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or gender, everyone will be confronted by four major fears, beginning with the parent of all fear—the fear of death (the unknown). This fear is the progenitor. It’s just the starting point. Allowing it to sojourn in your heart will ensure an introduction to its offspring: the fear of people, the fear of rejection, and the fear of failure. Together, this quadrangle will strive to hinder your potential, and ultimately keep you from your destiny. But fear does not have the final say. In fact, there are 365 “fear nots” in the Bible. That’s one for every day of the year! This lets you know that God wants you fear free every day. He has a strategy whereby you can walk through the valley of the shadow of death, and be unafraid. Let’s begin this journey now.
Many times I have claimed kinship to Moses, God’s servant-leader of the great exodus. During his time, he needed Caleb, Joshua, and ten other leaders to assist in the mission set before him. Likewise, God has been extremely generous, and given me people for my life. He has surrounded me with many anointed and talented people.
As it pertains to “Life Beyond Fear,” He has made no exception. Therefore, I want to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to those who assisted in the work. To my son, Tyrone Holcomb, who is a capable and extraordinary writer in his own right – thanks for overseeing this project, and for putting your heart into this assignment, because you knew how important it was and is to me. I am thankful for you, not only as your father, but as your pastor, also.
