“For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.”—Job 3:25
It is time to negate fear and worry from our lives—please read the previous post on this subject.
There is nothing good about fear. Fear will stop the Blessing of God from taking place in our lives. When we give over to the element of fear, we give ourselves over to things we really do not want to come to pass. Your love and service for God does not remove the fact that fear will open the door for a lot of unwelcome things in our lives.
This is truly what happened in the life of Job. In the verse above, Job explains his state of mind when he was giving sacrifices for his children’s sin. He was in a state of fear in the midst of being loyal to God. Although Job loved God and served Him, his fear opened the door for Satan to have free course to destroy his family and livelihood. Death and destruction; sickness and disease; poverty and lack; are all elements of the curse and are not ever given to us by God. Nevertheless whenever we leave God’s protection by fearing instead of connecting to it through faith, we leave ourselves unprotected.
God wants us to walk in faith and not fear. Faith connects us to the goodness of God and everything He desires for us to have in our lives. Faith in God and His Word is the foundation for every Believer. When we live a life of faith, we express our trust in God to be everything we need to sustain us. Conversely, when we are in constant fear of ‘bad’ things happening in our lives, we empower those very things to come to pass.
It is the will of God that we experience His best but we hinder that when fear is allowed to go unchecked. Therefore, whenever you find yourself embracing fear rather than faith; turn to the Word, begin to focus on faith and root fear out—you will be better for it.
So, make the decision today to eradicate ALL fear from your life.
Father, we recognize that fear does not come from you. Therefore, we denounce fear and its power from our lives now. We make the choice to turn to faith in you and make the choice to walk in and live by that faith. Thank you for the power to make this change, in Jesus’ Name…Amen!Have Faith1st ©2013 Faith1st Ministries
