Fear is a spiritual force. It is one of Satan’s greatest tools to get an open door into your life. It could manifest through the fear of not being good enough, the fear of lack, the fear of rejection, the fear of failure.
Satan will try to intimidate you through words, actions or external signs. But none of those things can become a reality or come into manifestation until you act upon them.
Negative or fearful thoughts may come into your mind, but you can refuse to meditate on them and chose to immediately reject them. Circumstances may appear discouraging, but you can refuse to let go of your confidence and faith in what you know about God and His Word.
If you respond in fear and act on intimidation, those fears can become a reality in your life. Fear will bring things to pass just as faith will. Job said, “The thing which I greatly feared has come upon me” (Job 3:25).
The devil can not do anything that he wants to do anytime that he gets ready to do it. If he could, why would he have to deceive you first? Satan is limited when he can’t get you to act on his threats through fear.
1 John 4:18 (NIV) tells us, “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear…” And we know from 1 John 4:8 that God is love. Run to God, spend time with Him, act on His Word and fear will have no place in you.
Take courageous steps of faith and you will see God move in your life in amazing ways!
Confession: I refuse to fear! Regardless of how I feel or what my circumstances look like, I will stand in faith on God’s Word.
