You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies during the day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plaque that destroys at midday……(Ps 91:5-6)…in Faith you WILL NOT FEAR!!!
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear (Rom 8:15); For God hath not given us the spirit of fear (2 Tim 1:7); 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)~ there is no disputing that God’s love is perfect and in it there is no torment. But when we fear something, it literally torments us… we stress over things we’re worried about and our minds start wandering in the ‘what-if’ scenario valley… mingling in fear.
Fear feels real, but that is just it, it is a feeling that we can have and will have if we allow it room in our hearts and minds. How can God, who loves us, give us any portion of something that torments us? Fear is not of God!
Satan is defeated and is without hope forever, that’s why he carries an abundance of fear. It is also why he is so desperate to give his misery and fear to others. He wants to bring down as many of God’s men, women, and children as possible. He doesn’t want to keep it to himself, so he gives it to whomever will take it. He loves to torment and put fear on and in us, to scare us and to keep us on edge. The more that he can get us to fear the happier he becomes because fear draws us away from what pleases God: faith.
But God gives each of us a certain measure of Faith, just like ‘He’ gives us everything else that we have need of. We must exercise our faith and put it into action if we are going to overcome fear in our life!!! No matter what situation we’re in, no matter how bad it looks! Power, Love and a Sound Renewed Mind are our weapons of Faith that casts out Fear! We must know that fear and Satan are defeated; he knows it so must you!!! His biggest goal is to get you to believe in those fears that steal your faith, kill your joy and destroy your spirit! But We have been bought with a price, the price being the Blood of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The word of God says that we are healed, delivered and set free from the effects of fear!!!
That’s some incredible news!! Our very FAITH is how we defeat fear…even when we can’t see the truth that faith promises. God says: Fear Not! Only Believe! You have nothing to fear!!!
Focus on Faith to the Finish
