“For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and love and a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
First, I want you to sit back and carefully ponder. Can you recall vital ‘fails’? I mean failures you have had in the times past. What can you categorically identify the ‘fails’ to? How many percentages did fear contribute to those failures?
Fear can be described as the seed sown to reap failure (fails). When fear is sown, great is the harvest of failures. No major or significant life can live in an atmosphere of fear and fully prosper. It is indisputable that life offers many uncertainties such as life itself due to daily life crises, the possibility of the future, the uncertainty of the economy, and so on.
However, let me reminds you that these uncertainties seemingly appear to be minute. Still, underneath every fear, there is discouragement, indecisiveness, insecurity, reluctance, laziness, and procrastination that falls on the seed of fear that has been sown. Even, when you embark on a very tending successful and profitable endeavor, the seed of fear that you have sown rapidly grows and leads to a harvest of failure.
The spirit of fear did not accompany the new life of Christ Jesus given to us. Instead, that which has been given to us is the spirit of power, and love, and a sound mind. When we are afraid, our minds become weak, and our hearts lose faith in God. Why not embrace the spirit that has been given to you? Fear fails; the spirit of fear makes you fail. The Bible says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
1. This day by the Blood of Jesus, I break and destroy every yoke of fear in Jesus’ name.
2. I am overcome with joy. My heart is filled with peace and joy through the blood of Jesus that made me whole.
3. Lord God, I accept the spirit of power, love, and a sound mind that you have given me, and I live by your spirit. Amen
