Fear not, I am with you — Jesus Christ

Many times, fear has opened spiritual doors therefore allowing the enemy to keep God’s children in bondage. This is why we find that the bible has the words “fear not” almost in every book.  Fear is the cause of sicknesses, loss of confidence, failure to reach God’s desired destiny, missing financial breakthroughs, and many more problems that God’s children have been through.

It is sad to notice that many people have missed a key to their destiny because of fear. God knew that the enemy will use fear to keep His children in bondage, this is why “fear not”, or “do not be afraid” has been repeated numerous times in the bible.

When the children of Israel were getting out of Israel, they were so afraid when they saw that the Egyptians were following them and cried out to Moses that the wilderness would become their grave. Moses responded by telling them to fear not but stand still and see the Salvation of the Lord (Exodus 14 vs 13).

You can imagine how God looked at the Children of Israel because these are people who had just seen many miracles that God had performed through Moses in Egypt which made pharaoh to agreeing to let them Go and save their God. Looking at their murmurings you will notice that these children of Israel were still looking at things with a physical eye instead of a spiritual eye.

By looking with a physical eye, they saw great chariots getting close to them, instead of seeing God who had just performed the miracles which led to their deliverance. Dwelling or focusing on the problem allows the enemy to bring fear in our lives until focus is completely lost and eventually cannot even pray. This is the enemy’s strategy to defeat God’s children.

When the King of Syria sent horses, and chariots, and a great host to fetch Elisha, upon seeing the chariots and a great host, his servant was afraid but Elisha told the servant to not be afraid(II Kings 6:15).As children of God, we also have the same assurance to never be daunted by that which appears on the surface. This means that we must never walk “after the flesh,” but rather “after the spirit” because our adversary the devil walks about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour

(1 Peter 4:8).

Sometimes we start very well but when a small storm rises up, we are shaken to a point that saying a prayer becomes very hard because we are so afraid. This is exactly what pleases the enemy to know that their tactics have worked because the doors are opened and you become a playground of oppression, sickness and all kinds of financial embarrassments.

Without fear, you will be able to stand with boldness and remind the enemy of His Fall when Jesus defeated powers of the darkness on the Crossof Calvary therefore redeeming us.

Our Heavenly father, is a God who loves us too much to just sit in heaven and allow the powers of darkness be oppressing us.“For he who touches you touches the apple of God’s eye” (Zechariah 2:8).

    “Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Proverbs 9:8

    ” . . . but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” Matthew 18: 6-9

    Is this nothing to fear?

    “For the lips of an adulteress drip honey, and smoother than oil is her speech, but in the end she is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death . . . .” Proverbs 5: 3-6

    Is this nothing to fear?

    Man uses both the carrot and the stick to keep his donkeys on the right path. The Lord uses love and fear. Fear is needed to control those who would abuse love, especially those who, by their actions and words, are stumbling-blocks on the path of the righteous. There are many who, not content to live wicked lives, exert all their efforts to drag others into their wicked life-styles.

    “Woe to the world because of its stumbling-blocks! . . . woe to that man through whom the stumbling-block comes!” Matthew 18: 7

    “The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of the Kingdom all stumbling-blocks.” Matthew 13: 41

    When you deny the need to fear the consequences of your actions, are you not in danger of becoming a stumbling-block, and might you not have good, scripture-based reasons to fear the consequences?

    All things you see today are driven by fear. There is need to replace fear with faith and you will experience exploits. It is a call to all you will never achieve anything with fear
