One of the biggest things that comes against us in life is FEAR!
Fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of being disappointed, fear of not being worthy, fear of our past, fear of our future. Fear of the “What If’s?”
Fear has been deﬁned in an acrostic as False Evidence Appearing Real. Fear makes you think that the worst will happen!
Jesus said in John 10:10 “the devil comes to rob, kill and destroy, but I have come to give you abundant life”.
We sometimes get a glimpse of that abundant life that Jesus wants to give us, and then too often it is stolen from us by the cares of life, our fears and worry.
The devil is called the “father of lies.” He uses the natural emotion of fear against us to make us feel helpless in resisting him. He wants us to doubt God, and ourselves because it makes him appear stronger than he really is!
The devil’s tactic is to make us feel like we are all alone. His objective is to warp our image of the world and ourselves.
He tries to make us believe we have to strive for success, and achievement before we are acceptable. He speaks the lie that we have to live in fear and intimidation, and all too often we listen!
Only say what the God says in His Word!
We are all created in the image of God, and are precious in His sight. Our objective in the fight against fear is to grab hold of all that God has given us.
To know “who” we are in Jesus and “what He has done for us”.
Imagine if we only believed, and only said “what God said about us”.
What if we only spoke what God said about others and life’s situations?
How different we would be!
God has so much to show us, for us to experience in Him, to “LIVE” this life He has given to each one of us.
Let’s not let fear and intimidation blind us to how much God loves us and How much He is for us!
Declare instead what God says about you, and let that be “your” tactic!
“I know the plans I have for you. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 29:11
