For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Fear is the enemy of faith. It is one of the great weapons of the enemy to try to paralyze people and keep them where they are. Fear is simply a lie and deception and when we experience fear in our lives we need to strengthen ourselves in the Lord. To strengthen ourselves in the Lord means to spend time alone with Him in prayer, His word, and worship.
When we give our heart to Jesus Christ we are filled with the Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit desires to fill every part of our life and empower us for this journey we call Christianity. But we must open our heart to the Holy Spirit and ask Him to fill us to overflowing. It is God’s perfect love that drives out fear and when we draw near to Jesus and abide in Him daily His love consumes every part of our being.
Don’t allow the lie and deception of fear to keep you where you are today. God desires for you to walk in the destiny He has set before you. This will only be accomplished by His grace and His power. It will not be accomplished in your own strength or wisdom. Simply humble yourself before the Lord and tell Him you simply need help and strength. Ask Him to lead and guide you and simply pray that His will be done. As you seek Him and pray His will be done His hand will move mightily in your life and by His grace and power your life will be transformed into a vessel for His glory.
