2 Kings 7 vs. 3 (NLT)
Now there were four men with leprosy sitting at the entrance of the city gates. “Why should we sit here waiting to die?” they asked each other.
Fear is a feeling induced by a perceived danger or threat. Its occurrence causes a change in metabolic and organ functions and ultimately a change in behavior such as fleeing, hiding, or freezing from perceived traumatic events.
Is there something that you need to do, are there changes you need to make, but you are afraid. One thing is sure, if you remain paralyzed where you are, the outcome is inevitable.
Two things contributed to the fear of those men, one; they were sick with a life-threatening illness, two, there was a famine in the land where they lived.
Have you been diagnosed with an illness that threatens your life? Are you hungry from a lack of hope and resources? Why not get up from that place and venture out into the land.
Gaining as much knowledge as you can help to become accountable to yourself, and those you love. You deserve to be in a position where the best outcome is possible.
Are there things you can do to increase the quantity and quality of your life?
For example, a change in your diet; getting better rest; reducing your stress; and taking responsibility for your health. Many people have been where you are and have made the courageous decision to get up from where they laid and venture out, and found that just a few life-changing steps from where they thought they would die, they and all those who were with them, found life instead.
