Our opening Scripture reveals that God has not given us the spirit of fear. When the Word tells you what you have in Christ apart from what you do not have, take careful note of the details and facts. You do not have the spirit of fear, for God didn’t give that to you. Got it? Fear is of darkness and God has delivered us from the power or authority of darkness, which includes fear; so, as a child of God, you ought not to be afraid of anything. If you have been delivered from the power of darkness, why then are you still afraid of darkness? It will amaze you when you hear some believers say things like, “Yes, they know that they have been delivered from fear and Satan but…” Can you imagine that? What does ‘but’ mean? ‘But’ means that ‘contrary to everything that has been said,’ a negation of what has been said. That’s what ‘BUT’ means. If you believe that the Word of God means what it says, then why not go for the Word and lay hold on it. Hebrews 6:18 says “That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie…” God cannot lie. Lift your hands and say “Thank You heavenly Father, for I have been delivered from fear and the authority of Satan. You have delivered me from the power of darkness, and You have translated me into the kingdom of Your dear Son. Thank You Lord, for I have been delivered from the power of failure, from the power of sicknesses and diseases. I have been delivered from the fear of the future. I have been delivered from the power of oppression. I have been delivered from the power of lack. I thank You Father, for lack has no power over me. I thank You Father, for sin has no power over me. I have redemption, a divine buy-back from sin and all its consequences.” Hallelujah! That’s how to lay hold on the truth of God’s Word!!!
Fear is not of God; fear belongs to the devil. God can never be afraid, because God is always in-charge and as God’s offspring, you ought not to be afraid of anything. Proverbs 28:1 says “…the righteous are bold as a lion.” You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. 2 Corinthians 5:21 reveals this clearly, that God has made Jesus to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. So, if you are born again, you are righteous in Christ. So, the Scripture is speaking clearly of you, that you are bold. Say this in faith “I, (Mention your name), I am bold as a lion.” Whatever cannot be found in God must not be found in you. Fear is not of God; it ought not to be found in your custody. Peradventure you have entertained it concerning certain matters of life, discard it right now. Take authority over fear in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. What God has given you is the spirit of power, love and of a sound mind. Refuse to entertain the fear of the future, or the fear of the unknown. Take your reference point from the Word of God, based on your identity in Christ Jesus. You are a victor, not defeated, triumphant not a failure, blessed not cursed, prosperous not poor. That is who you are. Believe it and confess it!
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION):
In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I declare that I am a victor and that I have victory and dominion over fear, for God has not given me the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Amen!
Colossians 1:13-14; Hebrews 2:13-15.
