@Regrann from @nathanielinajoh - Many years ago, when my first son was about a year old, we traveled to my village. It turned out there was a festival of masquerades going on but I didn't know about it. As I stood carrying my son in front of our house later that evening, one masquerade approached us and tried to scare my son. My son wasn't scared but, instead, slapped the masquerade that had brought its face very close to my son's in its attempt to scare him. The masquerade took off because it wasn't expecting that reaction.
What gave my son that confidence? I was carrying him! He felt safe in my arms and knew I wouldn't let anything hurt him. He could see I wasn't afraid so he drew confidence from my disposition. I learnt the following lessons from this:
1. Who is carrying you through your journey of life? There are situations you would face in life that would overwhelm you if you tried to face them on your own.
2. You need to know beyond all doubts that God has your best interest at heart. Let this knowledge give you the confidence you need to face any challenge that may come your way.
3. Be bold enough to slap the dirty face of the devil (with the Word of God) anytime he shows his ugly face in your affairs. And like that masquerade, he will flee.
4. Remember that behind every mask, there's a face. The devil puts on the mask of failure, sickness, unemployment, depression etc just to scare you.
Now, beat him at his own game by putting on Jesus Christ and watch yourself overcome that fear.
