“Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution, he will come to save you.” Isaiah 35 vs 4(NIV)
A lot of us have allowed fear to dominate our life. We get scared every second, it now dwells in us to the extent that our self-esteem has been reduced. Fear is destructive. Fear is an emotion that makes us extremely vulnerable to spiritual attacks. Fear is linked with a lack of both faith and the fear or reverence of the Lord. When we are afraid, we are not trusting God and often, fear something or someone other than God! Fear is one of the main weapons the enemy uses to torment us and to dictate feelings and behavior I ask you, What are you scared of?
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” 2 Timothy 1:7. We live in fearful times. A pandemic has struck. People are afraid. They are afraid of dying from the disease. They are afraid for their loved ones. They are afraid of other people. They are absolutely scared of everything. Oppression and Depression have filled the world with fear. Note that it is natural to be afraid occasionally but If we continue to feed our fear we will not live in victory. Jesus said in JOHN 10:10 “THE THIEF COMETH NOT, BUT FOR TO STEAL, AND TO KILL, AND TO DESTROY: I AM COME THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.”
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love”- 1 John 4:18. Fear begins with a thought and then grows gradually. A sound mind is very essential and important in living the Christian life. RIGHT THINKING LEADS TO CORRECT LIVING. The Word is your weapon. Love is your weapon. Praying in the Spirit is your weapon. Pray for a sound mind. When God’s people are free from fear, they can walk in power, authority, and victory!
If your current situation has given you feeling of a fearful heart, take a moment to engross that God sees what you are going through, and He will come and save you, meanwhile, He wants you to hang in there and keep trusting Him. What does it look like for you to be strong in Him and not fear your present situation where you are today?
“For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.” I John 5:4
Are you yet to accept Jesus Christ into your life? Say this short prayer; Lord, I acknowledge that I am a sinner, please I ask that you forgive my sins, I surrender my life to you, save me, heal me, deliver me and use me for Your glory and ’cause all things to work together for my God. I am free from the bondage of fear! Amen.
