Fear has gripped our world, our churches, our schools and our families. Fear robs relationship and fellowship. Fear is one of the enemyâ€™s favourite tools to keep us from going forward. As soon as we make a decision to step out in faith, immediately, the enemy will bring fear to stop us. Heâ€™ll put negative doubting thoughts in our mind like, â€œWhat if I fail? What will others think? Maybe I donâ€™t have what it takes.â€ Heâ€™ll do his best to use fear to try to convince us to shrink back and just stay right where we are. He is a liar!
Did you know the Bible says that fear is a spirit. It affects your emotions and can govern your feelings. But when you choose to put your trust in the Lord, no matter how you are feeling, you will combat fear. Hallelujah!
Today, do not allow fear to trap you and hold you back. Instead, take a step of faith knowing that God is on your side. He is for you and with you, leading and guiding you in the path of victory all the days of your life.
â€œFear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.â€
(Proverbs 29:25, NIV)Â
Yahweh, Iâ€™m trusting You. I have decided to press forward in faith, so I can overcome the negative spirit of fear. God, I trust that You have my best interests at heart, and I know that You are leading me in the paths of righteousness all the days of my life, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
