Fear Not and arm yourself daily with the sheild of faith in Christ! Faith is all about reacting to natural situations in a fearless supernatural manner. Fear is all about reacting to natural situation in a predictable fearful natural manner. Fear is inevitable when we walk by sight. In order for us to walk by faith, we must hold on to Jesus every day. When we walk by faith we see God’s presence and His solutions for us in the midst of problems. However, when we walk by fear, all we see is ourselves in isolation going through it all alone without God.
Faith is to do with believing the Word of God as wholesome truth and evidencing our believe through relying on it without wavering. We need to believe and rely on God's Word in order for us to be able to reject evidence of fear as nothing but false evidence appearing as real. Faith basically enables, but fear cripples. We need faith in order for us to keep trusting in the supernatural working power of God in our lives and to keep believing in it as truthfully working everything together for our good irrespective of how negative or daunting our natural circumstances or situation. We need faith in order for us to remain obedient to God and serve Him diligently in all things. We need faith in order for us to remain fervently prayerful and continually worship God in spirit and in truth no matter our natural circumstances. Our victory in all situations from start to finish is indeed assured by us believing and having faith in the Word of God!
The Word, power and authority of God made flesh is Christ Jesus (John 1:1-14). Christ as God's Word made flesh is the Spirit of truth, love and life itself. And all we need to do in order for us to remain consistently victorious over Satan who is the spirit of; lies, hatred and death: is continually surrender our all to Christ who as Spirit of truth, is the author and finisher of our faith.
Whatsoever circumstances you might be going through today as a redeemed of Christ, fear not! Don’t be deceived by Satan's fearful tactics or by his lies that you are going through it all alone. God never leaves nor forsake His redeemed and He is always faithful to make a way for us where there seem to be no way. Shut down the gateway of fear and magnify the LORD today with your riotous praise and worship. Fix your eyes on Christ and be rest assured of victory in all circumstances through the effectual working of the power and authority that is in the name of Christ Jesus. No matter your situation or circumstances, call upon the name of Jesus and believe without wavering, that you are by the holy authority of His name destined to always win unfailingly. The presence of Christ in your life is all you need to overcome the spirit of fear. When the spirit of fear, which is the devil sees that you are fully surrendered to Christ who is the author and finisher of faith, the devil will surely bow in defeat in all circumstances and he can never succeed in crippling you!
Live daily by faith and not by sight. Irrespective of how daunting or impossible the situational outlook of the natural situation you find yourself in, keep holding on to Jesus every day and never let go of your faith in Christ. Jesus Christ as the author and finisher of our faith has the power to change your circumstances and bring you out of any situation you are in full of His might and strength to the glory of the Father. Therefore, fear not for as long as Christ is in the boat with you, your life boat can never capsize no matter how heavy the storm!
I pray the spirit of fear will never have its way in your and that you will by God's grace through your faith in Christ Jesus reach His predestined destination of glory for your life in Jesus's mighty name. Amen.
