Unexpected occurrences can catch us off guard 

at times. We must not allow anything to derail, 

paralyze, or prevent us from becoming the people 

God created us to be.

Fear is a deceptive emotion that

can lead to an unfulfilled life.

The enemy promotes fear, whereas 


 God encourages faith.

Fear, whether actual or imagined, can have 

serious consequences in our lives. Fear that 

is imagined has spiritual underpinnings. 

Lack of peacefulness and joy are spiritual 


"Don't be afraid, for I have redeemed you; 

I have called you by name; you are Mine," 

says Isaiah 43:1.

God truly instructs us not to be afraid or 

worried. The phrase “Fear not” is mentioned 

at least 80 times in God's Word, most likely 

because God knows the enemy uses fear t

weaken our faith, crush our spirit, steal our 

joy, and limit our successes.

It is really difficult to be simultaneously 

grateful and dissatisfied. When we give thanks, 

something extremely powerful happens, 

especially when we are going through difficult

 circumstances and feel shackled by fear.

Paul says that we express gratitude for what 

God has done and given us, that we applaud

 God for satisfying our needs, and that we trust 

God's timing.

Many individuals underestimate the value of 

maintaining a clear mind and a grateful attitude, 

especially in the face of adversity. We may be

 letting Satan, the instigator of dread, to invade 

and launch an all-out assault on the priceless real 

estate of our minds in far too many cases. His

strategy is directed at our minds.

Fear is a thief and a foe. The thief, our opponent,

 and the father of lies is Satan. The thief is only 

interested in stealing, killing, and destroying. 

Satan's job is to keep us terrified, perplexed,

 and immobilized. Satan, if permitted, will 

obscure the intellect and completely undermine

 our joy and happiness.


Fear tends to focus our hearts and minds on what

 is wrong or lacking. Satan does not want us to be

 cheerful or at peace. Satan wants us to be

 perplexed, unappreciative, skeptical, and scared,

 and to seek 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 devil is a liar, and he does not speak the

 truth! Setting one's mind on something means 

deciding to think about it. Our thoughts

 determine our objectives and direct our actions.

 Let us no longer accept cues from the outer world. 

We must spiritually put to death the old self and 

everything associated with our worldly sin nature.

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 to "capture and remove"

 any lies, illusions, and false narratives and ensure

 that our thought life, particularly in regards to any

 shackles we may still be in, 

lines up with the Word of God.

Spending time honestly confessing our fears to 

God and asking Him to lead and guide us tends to

 produce an indescribable peace, confidence, 

and joy.

We must reject the terror that comes from the 

evil spiritual realm, as the Scriptures warn us.

"If we resist the devil, he will flee from us."

James 4:7

May we thank God for these and all of life's 

wonderful blessings. Perhaps most importantly, 

give thanks for what God will do in the following

days, trusting that He will bring everything 

together for our ultimate good.

The more time we spend with God, the more 

amazing, astoundingly mighty, and powerful

 God is. The more glorious God reveals Himself 

to be... the more insignificant our difficulties


God is faithful. 

Whatever the future holds, God wants us to 

know that our lives are so much more than the 

fear we may be experiencing. God has the 

power to transform our circumstances. With 

God at the center of our lives, we will 

overcome our fears and become fearless.

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

of self-doubt and fear of failure. We can then 

overcome all of the painful self-limitations. 

 “Fear not” 

appears in almost every 

book of the Bible.😇
