Defy Past Patterns

We should not be passive about patterns in our own life because of experience.  For example, Job said, (3:25)  “For what I fear comes upon me, And what I dread befalls me.”  Fear is being open for what could happen, and that is agreement that empowers it.  Experience can argue that your fears are always successful, but even if we cannot deny experience or past patterns, we can most certainly defy them and keep them from controlling the rest of our lives.–Kathy Gabler
