Here is what The LORD gave to me for the new year of 5780: from fear to fearlessness!
It will be a year of great faith, having the boldness of The Lion and speaking to mountains and watching them move!
“Beloved. I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of Power, Love and a sound mind. Yes, My Child. You are as bold as a Lion.
I have given you a measure of faith. It is not your faith, but MINE. You have been fearful in the past to step out in faith.
But know this, Dear One. It is the Spirit working in you and through you. When you say ” I can’t do it”, you are right, My Child.
You cannot do it alone. You cannot do it with man’s “faith”. Without Me, you can do nothing. But listen, My Precious One. When you depend on MY Faith operating in you, ALL things are possible.
Yes, Beloved. This is the Good News! I AM opening your eyes to see this truth. You say, “I could never do that” and you are right. But you have died and now you are ALIVE in Christ.
I have given you a measure of Faith. This measure of faith is enough, because it is MY FAITH, the faith of Almighty God, the faith of your LORD Jesus Christ. As I AM, so are you in this world. Let your faith ROAR louder than the fear.
As I disarmed principalities and powers at the Cross, so shall you; as I have triumphed so shall you. You shall be fearless, as bold as the Lion of Judah!
Speak in faith and I shall deliver. No more pressure, My Child. You believe, therefore speak for I have given you the Spirit of Faith.
The mountains shall come crashing down. The world shall marvel and KNOW that you have been with the King.”
FEARLESS: Strong’s Greek 3954 Parresia: Free and fearless confidence, cheerful courage, boldness, assurance. Freedom in speaking, unreservedness in speech.
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith OF the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me,” Galatians 2:20.
“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus,”Acts 4:13.
“It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” Since we have that same SPIRIT OF FAITH, we also believe and therefore speak,” 2 Corinthians 4:13.
“Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward,”Hebrews 10:35.
“And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it,” Colossians 2:13-15.
