Fear has torment and it tortures its victims before manifesting, if it ever manifests. 1 John 4:18. It cripples every sense of reasoning and weakens one’s faith. Fear is so terrible that it can kill the victim before the thing being feared even happens. Fear is a terrible monster and it has a spirit. There is a spirit called the Spirit of Fear. 2 Tim. 1:7.
Fear is defined as false evidence appearing real. It is the conceptualization of imagination such that it becomes more real than imaginary. It can lead to a state of paranoia, hallucination, despondency, suicidal tendencies and insanity. Fear is truly powerful and can keep you sleepless all night and restless all day.
However, as terrible as fear is, there is an effective antidote designed by God to neutralize fear. Please note that there is a difference between godly fear and ungodly fear. Godly fear is a reverence awe for the things of God which leads to repentance, salvation and abundance, while ungodly fear is the type that cripples and renders one useless. All fears, except godly fear is from the devil. The devil and his demons are the ones responsible for painting those pictures in your mind and making them so real that you begin to fear them as if they have happened. They are all lies. I have been there before and I can tell you that no matter how so real they appear to be, they are like mirage in the desert.
The only antidote to fear is Faith. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things hoped for. Hebrews 11:1. Faith is the accepting of promises as if they had happened. There is no vacuum in is. You either have faith or fear. You can feed your faith by constantly recounting what God has done in the past, hearing the word of God, meditating on the word of God, acting on the word of God and praying in the Holy Ghost. You can also feed your fear by constantly feeding your mind with news of terrible things happening all over, avoiding the word of God, believing enchanters, diviners and sorcerers. When the devil throws a fiery dart of fear, counter him with the word of God. This is why it is important that you are loaded with the words of God and always be mindful of what He has done in the past.
The intention behind sending the spirit of fear is to make you believe God less and weaken your faith. The devil is a liar and full of lies. There is no truth in him, when he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own. John 8:44. So when next he comes with his lies, tell him he is a liar and there is no truth in the picture he is painting. Resist him firmly by telling him what God has promised, which is the thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. If you feed your faith, your expectations will come to pass and if you feed your fears they will manifest eventually. Job 3:25.
Stop feeding your fears by believing the devil. He is a pathological liar and cannot tell the truth. You cannot die before your time. You cannot fail as long as you are in Christ. You will not remain childless. You will not die single. Your future and destiny is certain as long as you walk with God towards the fulfillment. Put the devil where he belongs today by telling him he is a liar. Victory is certainly yours., because you are born of God. 1 John 5:4.
God bless us all.
