CONQUERING THE SPIRIT OF FEAR!

Jul 26, 2021

One of the biggest challenges of believers in this adventure of faith is the spirit of fear!.

Fear comes first. It is what opens the door for all other spirits, to come in and manifest!.

What kills, destroys, and paralyzes people and stops the power of God from flowing is fear, especially when it grips one’s heart!.

Jesus took on the form of man that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil and release those who through FEAR OF DEATH were all their lifetime SUBJECT TO BONDAGE…Heb 2:14-15

People are bound by fear. Through fear, Satan has succeeded in manipulating the destiny and outcomes of people’s lives. The bondage of fear is as strong as the devil himself and we need through the word of God to break that yoke off our lives.

Fear contaminates and hinders faith and where faith is hindered there’s a very limited flow of God’s power.

Most bad things come to pass because of the attraction we give them through fear.

Satan knows that if you believe you will get God’s results so he attacks your mind with thoughts of unbelief, doubt, and fear so that your faith is paralyzed.

The first spirit that attacked man was the spirit of fear.

And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden… and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden…Genesis 3:8

Fear caused Adam to run away instead of running towards God.

Fear makes people withdraw from what has come to bless them. It makes them miss out on the opportunity that Heaven has ordained for their lifting.

Yea, 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…Psalms 23:4

To conquer fear, you must be assured of God’s presence with you!.

The people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits…Daniel 11:32

You must know that Jesus, the captain of your destiny conquered death!.

From Adam to John the Baptist death reigned supreme. He held all men in bondage however God-fearing they were but when the Lord Jesus died, on the third day the devil handed over the keys of death and Hades to Him.

I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death…Revelations 1:8

Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection,…Matthew 27:51-53

Life is worth living because Jesus conquered what men fear the most, the principality called death!

I have written to you, fathers, because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the wicked one…1John 2:14

There’s nothing the devil can put on a saint who knows his God!.

Do you know whose you are? You belong to Him. Jesus is the captain, and pilot of your life and destiny! Though the turbulence might be there, you will make it!. He is so committed to you.

Heaven and earth will pass away but my word will not pass away…Matthew 24:35

I watch over my word to perform it…Jeremiah 1:12

“It is impossible for God to lie” … Titus 1:2

God is keenly watching His word to see to it that it is fulfilled in every area of your life!.

There’s nothing like a hopeless case with God. There’s nothing impossible with a man who believes!.

Just like Abraham, (Genesis 18), learn to create an atmosphere that brings forth miracles. Expectation is the breeding ground for miracles!.

Do not be bitter, sour, moody, negative however long it takes. Keep your heart afloat with joy and peace!.

Create the right atmosphere for the word of God to manifest in your life!

The Jesus who overcame the grave and conquered fear lives right on the inside of you!.
