Let’s Fight this Fear with God’s Word

Fear has got nothing on you when Christ is your Lord and shield (Psalm 28:7). It cannot rest on you when your trust is in the good shepherd (John 10:11-18). Jesus shed His blood and laid down his life in exchange for our lives. Evil will not overtake us because Christ already subdued it for us on earth and we can have peace in the world (John 16:33). He is like Job who will do anything to protect his children from falling (Job 1:1-5). He is like Moses who is so passionate for the deliverance of the Israelite. Christ will not allow any of these diseases or coronavirus to touch your body neither will he allow them to come near your dwelling place.

You carry the image of the living God (Genesis 1:28), and your body is God’s temple. He will, therefore, protect you during this pandemic, but if you are fighting for your life from the coronavirus, please do not surrender to fear. God allows an affliction for a reason beyond our reasoning but fear penetrates our lives in order to steal, to kill and to destroy. It is one of the instruments of the devil in this season and it wants to dictate the future. It wants to steal our hope for days ahead, and it wants to crush our faith in God. Let us, therefore, stand firm in faith and refuse to be subject to fear lest it subdues our lives.

Power to Overcome Fear

When God instructed Noah to build an ark for his protection from a destructive flood (their own kind of lockdown), he did not only fully prepare Noah for days ahead but he also empowers Noah for the task at hand. Although he safely protected Noah and his family from the impending doom, he also gave them the courage to face the battle for their lives. You are created in the image of God and you have the power to overcome this fear. There is a blessing from God over your life and it gives you the authority to subdue and dominate every living thing on earth including coronavirus. You have the provision you need to overcome in this unprecedented season.

You have the power!

As for me and my household, we are facing this fear with God’s words and we are declaring faith-filled promises of God over our lives while believing that we will win this battle against our minds. Will you join us in speaking these words over ourselves together? Let’s fight this fear together with God’s words. Let us speak faith-filled declarations that build up our faith in God the more and it chases fear away from us. These daily doses of truth over ourselves will help us win this battle with God on our side.

Let’s Get Started
