Fear is an assassin — it comes to kill, steal, and destroy.
We are not to welcome it into our hearts: minds, wills, and emotions. It is a spirit.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind,” 2 Timothy 1:7.
We have the authority in Jesus’ Name through His Blood to deny this spirit access to our inner man.
The mind is the great battlefield. We must retake any ground that fear has encroached upon.
Then we must plant the flag or banner of Christ in the soil of our hearts. Consider how the US Marines planted their flag on Iwo Jima. Our internal battle is like that intense natural battle fought and won through much sacrifice and heroism.
I searched the Scriptures and found much comfort in the Word. Search this out for yourselves: “fear not” and “not fear.”
The LORD cautioned His people (Old and New Covenant) not to fear. These numerous warnings indicate a foe that is constantly trying to attack our minds, but we are instructed to resist fear.
We must fight it like our lives depend upon winning this battle for in truth it does. The LORD would never command us to do something that was not possible. With Him and through faith in Him all things are possible to the believer.
After studying the Word, I waited on The LORD to hear what was on His heart. This is what I heard.
I pray it will bless you and encourage you.
Blessings and Courage in Jesus’ Name!
“Fear Not, I have overcome the dark one for you
Fear Not, I have opened up the Door to the Kingdom to you
Fear Not, I have given you authority to use My Name
Fear Not, I AM for you; I AM forever the same
Fear Not, My Spirit is greater than fear
Fear Not, My Spirit is speaking into your ear
Fear Not, My Spirit is with you to guide and protect
Fear Not, My Spirit reveals the lies for you to reject
Fear Not, My Children, I’ve given you much grace
Fear Not, My Children, I’ve brought you to this place
Fear Not, My Children, you must listen to My voice
Fear Not, My Children, you must make a choice
Fear Not, It is time to consider your ways
Fear Not, It is time to redeem your days
Fear Not, I come to bring clarity and vision
Fear not, I come to restore with great provisions
Fear is an assassin, so don’t let him in
Fear is a deceiver, so don’t believe in him
Fear is a defeated foe; so laugh in his face
You are the overcomer; Now come take your place.”
