The more things you surrender to fear, the more things you will fear. Today you may be worried about only one thing; tomorrow about two things, and soon you become so emotionally involved in fear that you have no identity. Irrationality means loss of identity, which means the accumulation of fear until you are afraid of life itself. Fear is something that, if not controlled, continues to develop in your life until you have no capacity left to enjoy life. By means of many years of such ungodly decisions to live in fear, as a believer you become a loser.
David said of the ungodly, "There they were in great fear where no fear had been" (PSA 53:5a). There was no reason to fear, but that's exactly what the ungodly did. Fear is irrational thinking caused by ignorance of Bible doctrine. One of the reasons people become addicted to drugs or alcohol is fear of life, which causes anxiety, worry, and tension. The cure for these addictions is a healthy diet of Bible doctrine which changes your irrational thinking to rational thinking which is the mind of Christ.
The more you surrender to fear, the greater becomes your capacity for fear. As fear controls more and more of your life, your insecurities increase, destroying your capacity for love, life, happiness, and blessing. This is akin to residing in the cosmic system rather than the Pre-designed Plan of God (PPOG). In the cosmic system no set of circumstances, be it wealth, success, prosperity will ever make you happy, because fear will always be there, strangling your capacity to enjoy anything.
(For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Maskil of David [a Maskil is a song or poem of instruction]. "Give ear to my prayer, O God; And do not hide Yourself from my supplication. Give heed to me, and answer me; I am restless in my complaint and am surely distracted, Because of the voice of the enemy, Because of the pressure of the wicked; For they bring down trouble upon me, And in anger they bear a grudge against me. My heart is in anguish within me, And the terrors of death have fallen upon me. Fear and trembling come upon me; And horror has overwhelmed me." (PSA 55:1-5)
Fear destroys happiness, where fear exists, happiness cannot. That's because there is no way you can have true love, or true happiness, apart from a healthy mental attitude, and fear destroys the mental attitude. So the greater your capacity for fear, the more you increase the power of fear in your life. The more you increase the power of fear in your life, the greater is your mind set as a loser believer, and the greater your chances of failure to execute the PPOG through the mechanics of the spiritual life under equal opportunity. The greater your chances of failure to execute the PPOG, the sooner you cancel your equal opportunity to glorify God. The sooner you cancel your equal opportunity to glorify God, the sooner you live a life of total misery through the law of volitional responsibility.
