TOPIC: DEALING WITH FEAR
Fear is your enemy, reject it. “Fear not” is mentioned about 365 times in the bible which mathematically means each one is for each day. Fear is not from God. The only fear the bible encourages believers to have is the fear of God and it is without a torment. It is referential fear and that of abiding in His word. Many people have allowed the enemy to keep them in bondage because they fear the unknown.
Fear is the opposite of peace. We are either fearful or peaceful. To enjoy the peace of God, we must do away with fear.
In Job. 3:25, the bible says
“For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me”.
From the statement of Job, you will see that those things we fear are those things that the devil uses to track us down. Don’t panic over any declaration made against your life since it is not from the mouth of God. Avoid wrong prophecies that speak doom instead of peace. When you listen to the wrong words, they can affect your reasoning and create unnecessary fear in you.
Beloved, if anyone tells you he sees death following you, for it not to have to kill you before that moment shows that he is incapable of doing. As a child of God that you cannot die without God’s consent when it is not God’s timing. You can change the wrong prophecies concerning your life. If you reject it, so shall it be.
Under the old covenant, a man Hezekiah forcefully rejects the message the prophet of God delivered to him and God reversed it – Isaiah 38:1-6.
How much more for we, who are under the New covenant. God promises that we will live to the full of our age-Job 5:26.
Beloved, don’t let anyone or the devil deceive you by making you think it is not God’s plan for you to live long, it is the devil plans. He came to steal, kill and destroy – John 10:10a.
Tomorrow, we shall discuss the fear that comes through dreams.
God bless you
