Listen to Ben Wait, Young Adults Pastor of Bethel Austin, as he discusses how to eliminate fear over your life. Everything that happens in the spirit affects the natural. The spiritual realm is more real than the physical world that we live in. It's actually eternal, where the physical will fade away, so the spiritual actually affects the natural. Many things assist the Christian life, but don't always transform you. Although reading the Bible is a great habit, it doesn't necessarily change your behavior. Encountering the Lord may not transform you, but when you believe what you read, then you are transformed. When you believe what God spoke to you with an encounter then you're transformed by what you believe. This is how transformation happens. How many of us have ever felt fear, anxiety, or worry or something like that? If you believe you are what you feel, you've already lost the battle. We have an entire generation that's starting to believe they are what they feel and it's not the truth. You are who God says you are. In 2 Timothy 1:7 it says, "For this reason God has not given us a spirit of fear, but power, love, and a sound mind”. When you feel fear, nothing's wrong with you, fear is a spirit. God has not given you a spirit of fear so when you feel fear, there is actually not something wrong with you. This message gives biblical answers to overcoming fear.
