However in America (thanks to Benjamin Franklin) there are these people that do just the opposite.When they see a fire, they are not running away from it, but rather, straight towards it.
They are the fire fighters.
Why do they run towards the fire?
Training, They are all trained on not only how to locate the source of the fire but how to extinguish it as well.
Equipment, they have equipment that allows them to face the intense heat and lack of oxygen, as well as to be able to put the fire out.
Passion, there is no amount of money that can cause someone to run towards death when everyone else is running away, it is only the passion to save lives, that truly motivates them to do their job.
As think about firefighters, it requires the same thing to extinguish fear as it does fire.
Training, you have got to train your mind to focus on things above not things below.
Equipment, faith comes by hearing the Word of God, and you must have the armor of God about your life.
Passion, without a vision for your life your ministry your family, you will never fight the fears that can cause you to live an ordinary life, a life that doesn’t matter, a life that causes you to run away from the very thing you should be fighting.
What are some ways that you have fought fears in your life, and how has that made a difference?
