Fear: False Evidence Appearing Real  

Many people today are consumed by fear.  Fear is a weapon that satan uses to try to destroy us.  It keeps people in bondage to depression, obsession, drugs, alcohol, and even turmoil in their home life.  Fear is a powerful force that paralyzes and keeps people from moving forward to receive deliverance, success, peace, sobriety, and clear thinking.  Let’s be honest with ourselves, what positive, beneficial thing has ever come from fear?  

Job said, in Job 3:25, “For the thing which I greatly fear comes upon me, and that of which I am afraid befalls me.”   In other words, the more we meditate on the fears that come against us, the greater the chance we have that the things we fear will become a reality.   

Since that is the case, we need to do something and right away!  What can we do?  Take a healthy dose of FAITH!  The devil will continue to try to keep fear foremost in our minds, but we can defeat that by what we choose to think and meditate on.  Through the powerful force of faith and the Word of God that we can speak, we will overcome these attacks.  

Just as fear is a force that draws our thoughts to things of past downfalls and a hopeless future, faith is the force of action that draws the Will of God into our life.  In order for fearful thinking to be broken, our thinking must be renewed.  We must begin to refuse satan’s fears and choose to have faith in God’s Word.   

Begin to believe God today for good things to happen.  Speak faith filled words.  Faith and fear cannot occupy the same space.  Get yourself over into the perfect love that casts out all fear!  Choose FAITH!
