Topic: Don’t Allow Fear A Place in Your Life
Scripture: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10 (KJV)
Message: Fear is one major tool of the devil to hold you captive; he knows that if he can keep you in fear, he literally paralyses you. But I declare you free from the bondage of fear today in the name of Jesus.
How does fear come? Fear like faith comes from what you hear. What are you listening to? Fear comes by hearing the words of the devil. The world has no good news for you. Yes, listen to the news on TV, radio and internet; be very aware of the happenings in your environment, but you must not allow it get into you. You must be ready to sift the fact from the truth. Whatever does not align with the Word of God concerning you should be discarded; otherwise, if you dwell on it, you have opened the door for the devil.
TREM Daily Devotional 31 December 2018 – Don’t Allow Fear A Place in Your Life
So, how do I overcome fear? Stay in tune with the Word of the Lord. Have a word from God to counter every suggestion of the devil. When the devil tells you about hereditary diseases and reminds you of how your parents and sibling died of a particular disease and begins to suggest that you have the same thing. Stop and read to yourself the scripture that says, “By the stripes of Jesus you have been made whole”. Meditate on it, say it over and over to yourself and declare that your case is different. Remind the devil that you are now in Christ and your DNA is now from Jesus and since no disease was found in Jesus, none can be found in you because you are now in Christ and you are a new creature (2 Cor. 5:17).
Job said what I feared has come upon me. Refuse that thought to take a foothold otherwise it will become a stronghold and before you know it, you are a captive of fear. I declare you free today by the Word of God in Jesus’ name. 2019 is your year of remarkable testimonies in Jesus’ name.
