DO NOT FEAR
We do not live by what we fill, rather we live by what we know!
Brothers, we as children of God have not been given the spirit of fear. Before you were born again you may have been fearful of lot's of things. You may have been filled with worry over your own life, and the life of your loved one's.
It is possible that many of you tried to put fear out from your life, but was unable to do so. You only have to look around you in this time in which we live to see all of the worry, and fear which seems to be every where in this hour.
The news media is selling fear 24/7, and every day of the year. They are constantly putting fear in your face. Be it on television, or on your computer home page, your phone, your face book, your radios, your co-workers, your friends and family. Fear is being put in your face continually, and it is sad to say that a lot of our Christian brothers are also speaking fear.
Brothers, fear only serves one purpose, and that is to separate you from the peace that God has given us. Satin uses fear to take away your peace. But, he can not take away our peace when we both know and speak Gods promises to us.
Do you know that we have been commanded not to fear? We are told 365 times in the Holy Bible NOT TO FEAR! That is more than any other commandment that we have been given. Do you see that you could put aside fear with a different Bible verse every day of the year.
The lost world tries to sell us fear because this is a way to get control of people. If you live in fear then you will do what the world tells you to do. Satin can not know your thoughts. Did you know this. He can however hear what you speak. If you are casually speaking to someone and you say to them, "My co-worker has the flu, and I have felt bad the last day or two. I sure hope that I don't get it." Now you have given the devil a way to attack you. After you have spoke this negative thought, he will use in against you, and before you know it you are thinking, and speaking only flu into your life, and you will have the flu.
Do you know that we as children of God will receive whatever we speak. We only have to speak it, and believe it in our hearts, and it is ours. That means, as it says in:
Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Brothers, this works both ways, you can speak the mountain out of your life, which is what God designed for you to do as His child. Or you can also speak a mountain into your life which the devil wants you to do.
God spoke the earth into existence, and he created us in his own image. Once you have been saved, cleansed from all unrighteousness, by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are to choose life.
We choose life not death. We choose blessings not curses, brothers fear is a curse of satin. God says that he did not give us the spirit of fear. Therefore we are told and we know that fear is of the evil one.
2 Timothy 1:7; For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and of a sound mind and this includes self-control. We are to control what we say and do. As children of God who know Jesus we are to take control of our words.
Here you are told that God did not give us the spirit of fear. He did give us power over all things. He gave us love, both His love and our love for our brothers, and for the lost. He gave us a sound mind which means we have self control, and brothers we are not to give up our control, our self control to satin, or to the world.
Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Anxiousness is of satin, not of God! If a feeling of anxiousness comes on you, then you are to rebuke it for what it is.
Say aloud, "I rebuke you satin, I will not accept this lie which is coming from you. My Lord and Savior delivers me safely in his blessings. I choose life and blessings. Praise God. He provides for ALL of my needs." There is no greater number than ALL.
Brothers when you speak against satin do it by saying aloud. Remember that satin hears what you say he can not hear what you think. So rebuke him loudly and send him on his way. We are told that when we rebuke him that he will flee from us. Not just leave us, but he will run away as fast as he can. Flee means to run.
Romans 8:15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
We are the adopted children of the living God. We do not fall back into fear!
Hebrews 13:6 So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”
Indeed, what can man do to us, absolutely nothing. 'I will not fear.' If man kills you, where is the fear in that, for to be absent from the body is to be with the Lord. We will be made immortal. Praise God!
We are to renew our minds every day by exercising self control. We have control over satin and all of the fear, worry, anxiousness, that he can muster. We are to be fearless in this life my brothers in Christ Jesus!
John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
Brothers, when fear comes, the Holy Spirit of God Himself lives inside you, and he will remind you of all that God has said about fear or any other negative thoughts. He will teach you. He is our helper, our guide, our counselor, He delivers all truth of His word to us, and last but not least He gives us His strength. For it is not by our strength that we walk through this life, but rather He gives us His own strength. Is God strong? His strength is ours. Take it and walk in it every day.
1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.
Please understand ALL that God the Father and Jesus our Lord and Savior has freely given to us. We as His children have been given His power over ALL things of this world.
1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
Brothers, Jesus is our mediator. Who do you have on your side as you walk through this fearful, evil world? You have both God the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Brothers, Jesus defeated satin and this world, and He told us that ALL power was given to him. When Jesus died for us, and we accepted Him as our Savior, then did God's very own Holy Spirit come to reside inside us. God lives in us, and we live in him.
I have one last thought to share with you my fellow saints. Satin nor this world can take control of you. The only way that they have control is because you gave control to them. Brothers take control for Jesus gave you all authority and power over satin and this lost and dying world.
God Bless you my brothers. Walk in peace through this life.
