The spirit of fear is not from God; fear is fueled by the devil himself. If you fear you lose your power, you lose your love; your confidence and you begin to doubt the word of God. Fear brings condemnation and paralyzes you in your battle. This gives the devil leverage to use you to his maximum advantage.

When you start looking through the eyes of fear and only see the negative, it cripples your prayer life and you become double-minded; and a man that is double-minded is a man unstable in all his ways (James 1:8). Because of fear we neglect our relationship with the Lord and it brings guilt.

When guilt steps in faith and hope walks out because you cannot have fear and have faith at the same time. So what are you feeding – fear or faith? When fear dominates your life it will cause you to accomplish nothing, you will always feel insecure, you will always feel like the world owes you. The devil will never stop with his onslaught against you; it is a daily renewing of your mind to stay focus on your goal that God has set before you. The devil will tell you to give up and that the Lord doesn’t care. When you begin to question the presence of God, you need to know that you are no longer a slave to sin, you are redeemed and forgiven by the grace of God. God is never far from you and He will never give up on you; once the Spirit of God reveals His heart to you; a clear understanding of God’s power and His authority will be released in your life.

Allow God’s Spirit to direct you into all truth and make a conscious commitment to His word. To be reprimanded in love and to allow people to speak into your life, will break the hold that Satan has over you. Turn at my rebuke; surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you (Prov 1:23). Your mind will be steadfast and committed to the ways of the Lord. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. (Prov 9:10).

Prayer: Father God please forgive me where I have allowed fear to rule in my life, I repent of all kinds of fear and lay it at your throne of grace; Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus consume every spirit of fear that is not of you in Jesus name. Amen
