DO NOT LET FEAR HOLD YOU – DO NOT BE DECEIVED
To grant us that we, being rescued from the hand of our enemies, Might serve Him without fear.
75 In holiness [being set apart] and righteousness [being upright] before Him all our days.
~Luke 1:74-75 (AMP)
God is telling us that it’s time to quit whining about our fears and time to get moving in our offensive warfare against the devil. God’s Word has already told us why He sent His Son to deliver us.
Bless God, you have heard His battle cry against fear in your heart. You are now coming down out of your high tower of intellectual knowledge and move out onto the battlefield. All the joy, courage, confidence, peace, vitality, and zeal that Satan has stolen from you through fear will be restored to you in the Mighty Name of Jesus.
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].
~2 Tim. 1:7 (AMP)
What happened when you were born again was that you were cleansed from the guilt of all of your sins and fears. You were not automatically freed from the power of sin or the power of fear. That is why there is a spiritual war raging in your life right now, a war in which you:
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Eph. 6:12 KJV. God is coming back for a bride without spot or wrinkle. 27 That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. Eph. 5:27 KJV.
In God’s Army today it doesn’t matter what your fear is. The truth is that all fear emanates from a demonic spirit of fear, who has gained a foothold in your mind and is an enemy of God. If the spirit of fear is allowed to retain its foothold, sooner or later it will rise up to hinder, block, and prevent Christ’s life from flowing through you when you need it the most.
Then they said to Moses, “Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? What is this that you have done to us by bringing us out of Egypt?
~Exodus 14:11 (AMP)
REMINDER: DO NOT LET FEAR HOLD YOU – DO NOT BE DECEIVED!!!!
Love you and the Blessings of God be upon you.
