Sometimes we are caught off guard by unexpected


 circumstances. We must not allow anything to disrupt, 


paralyze or stop us from becoming the person God 


designed us to be.

Fear can be real or imagined and can have very


 negative effects on our lives. The imagined kind 


of fear has spiritual roots. Not having peace and 


joy are spiritual issues.


 

Isaiah 43:1 reminds us,“Don't fear, for I have


 redeemed you; I have called you by name; 


you are Mine.” 



God actually commands us not to fear, or worry. 


The phrase “Fear not” is used at least 80 times in


God's Word, most likely because God knows the 


enemy uses fear to decrease our faith, crush our 


spirit, steal our joy, and limit our victories.


It is very difficult to feel truly thankful and

discontent, cooperatively. Something tremendously 

powerful occurs when we give thanks, particularly,

when we are going through hard times and feel

 bound by fear. Paul suggests that we give thanks 

for what God has done, what God has given us,

praise God for meeting our needs, and trust 

God's timing.


Many people do not realize the importance of 

having a sound mind and a grateful attitude, even 

under dire circumstances. In far too many instances,

 we may be allowing Satan, the instigator of fear, to

 infiltrate and launch an all-out-attack on the valuable

 real estate of our minds. His plan of attack is aimed 

at our minds.

 
 Fear is a thief, an adversary. Satan is the thief, our 

adversary and the father of lies. The thief comes 

only to steal, kill, and destroy. Satan's job is to keep

 us fearful, confused, and immobilized. If allowed, 

fear, Satan, will blind the mind and totally sabotage 

us of our joy and peace. 


Why?  

Because fear focuses our hearts and minds on 

what is wrong or missing. Satan does not want 

us to have joy or peace. Satan wants us to be

 confused, unappreciative, doubtful, fearful and 

looking to the world for all the wrong answers.

“Set your minds on things that are above, 


not on things that are on earth.” 


Colossians 3:2


For God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of 


power and love and self-control. 


2 Timothy 1:7

The adversary is a liar and the truth is not in him!


To set one’s mind on something is to choose to think 


about it. Our thoughts influence our goals and guide 


our course of action. Let us no longer take cues from 


the world around us. We must, spiritually, put to death


the old self and whatever belongs to our earthly sin 


nature. We are not there, anymore.

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary,


 the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, 


seeking someone to devour.


1 Peter 5:8


Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be


 able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 


Ephesians 6:11

We must remind ourselves about “capturing and pulling 


down” any lies and make sure our thought life,


 especially where it concerns any bondage we might 


be in, lines up with the Word of God. 


Spending time honestly admitting our fears to


 God and asking God to lead us and guide us 


tends to foster an incomprehensible peace, 


confidence, and joy.


As the Scriptures remind us, we have to resist the 


fear that comes from the demonic spiritual realm. 


"Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."


James 4:7

May we thank God for these and the many other

 blessings of life. Perhaps most importantly, give

 thanks for what God will do in coming days, 

confident that He will work all things together 

for our ultimate good.

The more time we spend with God, the more awesome, 

impressively mighty and powerful God proves to be

The more magnificent God proves to be... the more 

insignificant our difficulties become.

God is faithful. No matter what lies ahead, God 


wants us to know that our lives are so much more 


than the fear we may be experiencing. God is able


 to change our circumstances. With God in the 


forefront of all of our affairs, we can conquer our 


fears and become fearless.


With God in the forefront, we are able to let go 


of self-doubt as well as fear of failure. After that,


we can outgrow any painful self-limitations. 

Almost every book in the Bible 


has a “Fear not” in it.😇
