There are those who fear the future–they fear that what they ‘don’t know’ may come, and they are afraid of what that ‘might’ be. Others fear what they know to be, and of what they see.
But what you may not realize is that fear is a spirit.
When one believes something, contrary to My Word, it releases faith for that to come to pass in their life. This release of faith ‘opens a door’ and gives opportunity for you to be tormented by fear.
I do not put fear upon you, Satan does.
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” II Timothy 1:7 KJV
“But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from evil.” II Thessalonians 3:3
“For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.'” Isaiah 41:13
But again, he does not have that power over you unless you open the door and invite him, by believing and confessing that which is contrary to My Word.
I have given you authority over all powers of darkness. Nothing shall by any means hurt you.
“The seventy returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!’ And he said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing shall hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you; but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.'” Luke 10:17-20
Command fear to leave.
Submit to My Word–believe the Truth; resist the devil and he will flee from you.
To be ignorant of My Word is to make yourself vulnerable to the unknown.
Commit to My Word, just as you have committed to Me. For when the unknown becomes known, you will not only realize, but utilize the authority I’ve given you and from you the devil will flee!
“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
“Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are of a fearful heart, ‘Be strong, fear not! behold, your God will come with vengeance, with the recompense of God. He will come and save you.'” Isaiah 35:3-4
“Behold, I will make of you a threshing sledge, new, sharp, and having teeth; you shall thresh the mountains and crush them, and you shall make the hills like chaff; you shall winnow them and the wind shall carry them away, and the tempest shall scatter them. And you shall rejoice in the Lord; in the Holy One of Israel you shall glory.” Isaiah 41:15-16
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace; above all taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.” Ephesians 6:10-18
“–and lo, I am with you always, to the close of this age.” Matthew 28:20b
Fear came knocking at my door,
which yells to me
worry about tomorrow
I run into the arms of Christ
The arms that holds all my
