“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right Hand” Isaiah 41:10
As some people often say “fear is false evidence appearing real”. I believe that fear is Satan’s chief police constable officer that he uses to captivate his victims. Once Satan has arrested his victims, without caution, using the spirit of fear, he handcuffs them so that they are not able to function or think for themselves. Then Satan starts to torture his victims and he enjoys it to the fullest. This satanic strategy is from the pit of hell and you have to resist Satan and he will flee from you.
When God is in charge, fear cannot have any hold over you. Fear is the opposite of faith; when fear shows up, faith disappears. You have to be determined to fight fear by increasing your faith.
FEAR NO EVIL
The Bible says in Psalm 23:4, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me”. Evil will not succeed in your life because Jehovah God is with you always; so you need not fear. “The Lord is my light and my salvation- whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1.
I have got good news for you; most of the things you fear do not even come to pass. But Satan likes to make you believe that they will happen. He is a liar and the father of all liars. You need to believe the Word of God concerning you and your loved ones.
The Word of God is immutable; it is fire and it is like a hammer that shatters a rock into pieces. The Bible says in Hebrews 4: 12,”For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edge sword, it penetrates even to the dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart”.
So, I encourage you to make it a habit of confessing the Word of God concerning any situation and all fear will disappear. Charles R. Swindoll says, “If I have counted correctly, there are over 350 “fear-nots” in the Bible. Think of them as God’s one-a-day vitamins”.
God is so interested in every detail of your life. He has even provided you with daily spiritual vitamins for your well-being. How great and kind is our God!!! Alleluia. “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 35:4.
Fear should not be the major factor that runs your life; God should be the major factor, as He is Omnipotent (All-powerful), Omnipresent and Omniscient (All-knowing). He knows everything about you and He has invited you to “cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall” Psalm 55:22.
Sometimes when you cast your cares on the Lord, you go back and pick them up again, because Satan instills some fear into you. But you have no power to deal with your cares and worries. So why pick them up again? Only God can take your cares and deal with them without fail.
I encourage you to cast everything onto His broad shoulders and you will not be disappointed. He is more than able to see you through. “You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness nor the plague that destroys at midday” Psalm 91:5
KEEP BASKING IN THE LOVE OF GOD AND ENJOY HIS PEACE
