We all go through different trials and tribulations in our life and often get stuck in the rut of our state of affairs. To get the best course of relief from the hurts, bad behaviors, you are going to have to deal with the fear of honest.
Three common fears that the devil uses to keep you stuck in your rut and keep you afraid to face your truths.
The fear of your own desires.
You do not have to be afraid to deal with your; memories, sins, abuses, and hurt. If you have ever felt like that, let it all go. Each person has experienced at some time during their lives that they were losing their mind because of their iniquities. You may be shattered, but you are not crazy. You are also in the appropriate company, because we’re all broken. We all have vulnerabilities, fears, and habits, etc.
The fear of what others think of us.
You are anxious to be open, because you might be rejected or dismissed or even abandoned. Others might think less of you as a Christian. You’re fearful of being yourself, because you are all, you have. If people do not like what they see, you are hanging out with the wrong company. Do not be distressed that others will try to fix you.
The fear that being truthful is irrational.
Why tell anybody else about what you are struggling with? You feel like you have been there previously, and it did not provide relief. Consider that if you had earlier been totally honest, you would already be free. The Bible says, “Admit your faults to one another and pray for each other so that you may be healed” (James 5:16).
When you can let go of your fears and confess your mistakes to other people, God has promised you the healing you have been looking for.
