Declaration of faith: I have not been given me the spirit of fear, but I have been endowed with the power to overcome every obstacle, perfect love that conquers every hindrance and a sound mind to make the right decisions.
There is always one or two things to be afraid of in this world. There is the fear of death and the fear of people. The fear of death because nobody wants to die young. We all want to enjoy this life and spend eternity on earth rather than in heaven. We want to live forever if we have our ways unfortunately we do not hold the power to eternal life, Christ does and we must account for our lives when we’re eventually face to face with God after death. We’re also afraid of people for so many reasons because we have exerted our power to them. We believe that they can make or break us with their power while we think less of ourselves, even though we also have the same power as them.
We’re also afraid of past mistakes and its consequences in our lives or the fear of failure. We’re sometimes afraid of the unknown, afraid for the future and afraid of danger that looms around. If we’re not fearful of the danger in the day then we’re afraid of the harm in the night. There is always something we’re afraid of, but if we don’t face the fear head on and fight it with God’s word, there will always be a fear of something or someone that will control our lives forever and stand in the way of the fulfillment of God’s promises in our lives.
Haven’t you heard it that there are at least 365 fear nots in the Bible? One scripture verse for each day of the year will help you combat fear in any situation or circumstances. 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 also believing that we will win this battle for as long as we hold on to God’s word.
