Taking Power Over Fear

The Bible tells us over and over not to fear yet it’s something I find myself struggling with. Fear is clearly not of God, it’s a weapon used by the devil to cripple our faith and leave us powerless. God started speaking to me fear and showing me I wasn’t alone. This year it’s time to put the devil in his place and bury fear once and for all. How? Let’s learn what the Bible says about it. I’ll share my fears and I invite you to share yours. We can’t defeat what we sweep under the rug. No, it’s time to call out those fears and say no more. In the name of Jesus I will not fear because my God is with me, He has gone before me and cleared my path. fear cannot and will not abide in me from this day forward.

The first verse I found telling us not to fear came to Abram in Genesis 15:1, “After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.” God then goes on to give him a promise of his seed being compared to the number of stars in verse 5, “And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.” Verse 6 says, “And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.” Abram BELIEVED Him! You can’t read those verses and not get excited.

The Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance tells us fear in this verse means, “A primitive root; to fear; morally to revere; causatively to frighten: – {affright} be (make) {afraid} dread ({-ful}) (put in) fear ({-ful} {-fully} -ing). (be had in) reverence ({-end}) X {see} terrible ({act} {-ness} thing).” To make afraid, put in fear. Fear not, (insert your name). Just as the Lord instructed Abram not to fear then, He’s instructing us not to fear today. I don’t know what He has called you to do, but He’s equipping you to do it. I don’t know what He’s bringing you out of, but He’s giving you what you need to bring you out. Don’t give way to fear, He has all you need to conquer whatever is before you! 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
