Overcoming the Spirit Of Fear
As long as you live in this world you will have an enemy; because Satan will always contend with the will of God in your life.
1 Peter 5:8, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour”.
Among many strategies of Satan to frustrate the fulfillment of God’s will in your life is the spirit of fear.
Fear is not from God; fear is of the devil. Devil is behind every tormenting and scary feeling. It is a satanic scheme to disarm you.
2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind”.
- Satan has employed the weapon of fear to intimidate you so as to rob you of your inheritance in God.
Ephesians 6:10-11, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil”.
Fear is an intimidating weapon of the enemy. It causes what does not exist to appear real. Fear is always in the negative. It makes you think that you have already lost the battle you are destined to win.
2 Corinthians 2:11…”lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices”.
The Bible says in:
Ephesians 6:13, “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand”.
It is not a matter of ‘if’; it is a matter of when. Satan will challenge your place in destiny, but you cannot be defeated if you refuse to be intimidated. You mind is the battleground of faith.
Hebrews 2:14-15 “Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage”.
Fear gathers all negative references that relate to your situation to deceive you so that you can never come out.
It tells you that the pain you are feeling is going to result in fatal diagnosis. Fear makes you think the worst of every situation and it allows Satan access to your life.
Job 3:25, “For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, and what I dreaded has happened to me”.
Fear opens the door for the devil to invade your life with inferiority complex, low self-worth, jealousy, anger and anxiety.
Fear makes you feel helpless and steals your confidence
Psalm 118:6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
Without the spirit of boldness, you will feel naturally helpless. Fear blindfolds you from seeing the victory of Jesus on your behalf. It disconnects you from all the blessings of the resurrection of Jesus
Psalm 34:1-4 “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2 My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; the humble shall hear of it and be glad. 3 Oh, magnify the Lord with me, And let us exalt His name together. 4 I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears”.
Your confidence is in the Lord! Every root of fear in your life is destroyed in the precious name of Jesus.
Jesus is Lord!
Confession of Faith over the Spirit of Fear
I believe beyond any doubt that as you declare your faith in the power of God’s word, you will begin to experience total victory over the spirit of fear in all areas of your life. Below are four powerful scriptures over the fear of death, the fear of poverty, sleepless nights and the fear of recovery from sickness that cannot be resisted by the devil. Remember faith is what you do with what you know from God’s word. Faith is the application of biblical truths.
- Psalms 34:4 (NKJV) I sought the LORD, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears.
- Psalms 34:19-20 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all. 20 He guards all his bones; Not one of them is broken
- Psalms 3:5 (NKJV) I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.
- 2 Corinthians 8:9 (NKJV) For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.
Supernatural Debt Cancellation!
About three years ago, my company was selected by the IRS for audit. During the auditing process, they noticed my business card was being used to fund the Moment of Breakthrough TV Broadcast, and they requested to know what it was and why it was so. I was so vexed in my spirit that I told them to look up Moment of Breakthrough online by themselves and never bothered to answer them again. After reviewing my case, IRS concluded that I owed $66,000 in taxes. I had several meetings with them but on the last day of the review, which took place in May at my company premises, I anointed everywhere and declared that I would not labor for another to eat. In addition, as we prepared for Bethel 2018, I decided to get fully engaged in every way possible. By faith, I used my business credit card to sign up for the advertisement on the social media platforms designated by the committee and I sowed a seed towards the program. To my surprise, a day after Bethel ended, I received a letter from the IRS stating that after further investigation, it was concluded that I no longer owed them anything and my balance was $0. I am here to return all the glory to the God of Bethel for cancelling my debt. Praise be to God! ~ E.I
A couple of months ago, my husband was diagnosed with TB and his chest was getting enlarged. After going through the routine treatment regimen in isolation for several months, he was cleared to return to work & life as usual. His doctor then told him he’d have to have surgery to remove the lump that was found in his chest. My husband decided not to opt for surgery but instead stood in faith for his healing. He began to read scriptures & books on healing and ensured that he was fully connected throughout the Bethel program, watching online when necessary. After the conference, he went back to see the doctor and after a checkup, was told the lump had completely disappeared and could no longer be found. I praise the God of this Commission for divine healing! ~ R.S
I lost my job sometime around the beginning of June. After staying for a week without a job, I decided to send Pastor a text message letting him know of my situation. He replied and declared, “By next week, you will be working.” I received it by faith and from that moment on, I started receiving job offers from so many places and I’ve had my hands full with work, lacking nothing. Praise be to God for honoring the word of His servant in my life! ~ A.G
