Conquering Fear: The Robber of Your Purpose

Fear: To be afraid of something or someone; to expect or worry about something bad or unpleasant.

 Let me say this now, fear hinders you from becoming all that God has called you to be.  God has great things in store for you and with seeking Christ we already know that we will have to endure some things, go through challenges and test, but praise God everything works together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purposes (Romans 8:28), and you're going to have to have courage, strength, and faith....beloved there is no room for fear.  

So what is fear?  Fear is a spirit, imagine a little demon running around your mind, your home, and your life telling you what you can and can not do, basically running your life, and living your life based off fear.  Fear of failure, fear of stepping out in faith, fear of rejection, and the list goes on and on.  Let me bring you to John 10:10, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; but I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full".  It is Satan's mission to steal your destiny, your promotion, to hinder you, he longs to kill your dreams, he desires to destroy your future, and one of his tactics are to induce fear into our lives to accomplish his goals.  Oh yes he has his plans, but our God has plans as well...He wants us to have life and to have it to the full in abundance. God has so much in store for us, yes it won't always be easy, but we can not allow that to stop us from living the life that God has called us to.

Understand this beloved, fear is like glue or some type of adhesive that prevents you from moving, it's like you're frozen unable to more forward into where God wants to use you, promote you, and grow you.  Know this, God already has your life worked out...did you catch that? If not, here it goes again, GOD ALREADY HAS YOUR LIFE WORKED OUT!  Meaning He already has each day of your life already written in His book, He is sovereign (in control) and has a beautiful story for your life.  I say all this to say, you have NOTHING to fear...why? because God is in control, He is an awesome God, and whatever you may come up against in life know that He is already there and has already provided a way, His way which is the BEST way. 

Understand that fear is a distraction from what God wants you to do, do not give fear a say in your life anymore!  Fear has no authority and no place in your life.  When fear tries to come, and you'll know because a specific thought will come and you will begin to "feel" fear and worry, there will be no peace. This is NOT of God, so cast it down in Jesus name and say aloud and declare "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me".  That is written in the Bible, Philippians back to fear and realign yourself with TRUTH, which is God's word and He says YOU CAN do ALL THINGS through CHRIST who STRENGTHENS YOU.  Beloveds, that is a promise and God always keeps His promises. 

If you do not remember anything else from this post, please remember this FEAR IS A CHOICE.  You can choose to stand on those little negative thoughts of "what if this or what if that" or you can choose to stand on God's word, and His word NEVER fails!  He will see you through wherever you are in your life journey, regardless of how low the valley is or how high that mountain seems, HE WILL SEE YOU THROUGH!

Remember you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you, not some things, or most things, but ALL THINGS!  Stand firm in your faith and in His word, we are more than conquerors.

I pray this has encouraged you.
