Shout Back To Fear - Go Now In Jesus Name!
2 Timothy 1:7 - For God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.
So, if God has not given you a spirit of fear, who has? Well, it’s the enemy – the devil. He puts thoughts in your mind, and as you meditate on them, they cause fear to arise. God has instructed us to think on things that are pure, good and of an excellent report,
see Philippians 4:8.
Why? Because He knows that if we do, we will stay in faith, focus and positive. The moment we think negatively, start doubting God’s Word, fear overtakes us. Anxiety will cause you to draw back from the promises of God’s Word. It will cause you to doubt that He can help you.
Thinking faith thoughts will allow you to rise up above the mess. The more you focus on fear, the bigger it gets. So you have a choice, what will you think about, fearful thoughts or faith-filled thoughts. The decision is yours. You are in control of your thinking. The devil needs fear to operate in your life, and God needs your faith to operate in your life. The choice is yours; which one will you listen to and follow?
With all the pressure around us today, we need to guard our minds, thoughts and words. There is pressure coming at you from all sides. What are you saying to it? Are you letting it in? Refuse to fear, don’t let it in.
Think thoughts that build you up, that makes you feel hopeful and encouraged, and then speak them out boldly, “YES, I CAN”. Stop yourself from thinking negatively and pulling yourself down. Create an atmosphere of faith in your heart by thinking good, healthy thoughts in line with God’s word.
John 14:27 says, “Peace I leave with you, My peace, I give to you, not as the world gives do I give you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
