Have you ever noticed that we live in a fear—based society? All you have to
do is turn on the news or read the newspaper, and you'll see that doubt and fear
have peaked and become the pattern for millions. People are afraid they'll die of
cancer, afraid they won't be able to pay their bills, afraid they're going to lose
their jobs, afraid they'll never have children. What's worse, many people have been
deceived into believing that fear is just as normal as breathing, but I beg to differ.
Fear is anything but normal!
Fear is actually tainted or contaminated faith. While faith is a practical demonstration
of confidence in God and His Word, fear is a practical demonstration of confidence
in Satan and his word. Every day we must ask ourselves, who am I connected to—God
or Satan? If we want to be connected with God, we've got to have faith.
Conversely, we must consciously realize that if we are void of faith and full of
fear, we're actually connected to Satan. Just as God uses faith to gain access into
our lives, Satan perverts faith and uses fear to gain entry into our lives.
Every day fear and faith are in an unyielding battle to reign supreme in our lives.
When people accept or tolerate fear, they're unwittingly being lured into Satan's
plan to control their lives. However, using the Word of God to abolish fear creates
and develops fearless faith that is bold and unstoppable, and it's that faith which
allows you to obtain the victory God has given you through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Did you know your born—again spirit is not even capable of producing fear?
God has not given you the spirit of fear which leads to bondage. In fact, He's freed
you from bondage, and He doesn't want you going back to it. So, if fear doesn't
come from inside you, where does it come from? Fear is produced and comes as a result
of things you've learned, heard, seen, and experienced. It is a byproduct of your
soul—your mind, will, and emotions—which is the area Satan desperately
wants to control.
Ultimately Satan uses fear to cause you to think God's Word won't come to pass.
If you fear God's Word won't come to pass, then you most certainly are not operating
in faith. And if you are not operating in faith, you're not connected to God.
Now do you see why it's imperative to uproot fear and the spirit of doubt from your
life? I urge you to do whatever needs to be done to abolish fear from every area
of your life, now! Pray and ask God to lead you to the source of your fears. Attacking
your fears from the source literally destroys them at the root, and creates a foundation
for fearless faith.
