Whenever the enemy brings fear to us we must always remember 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.” Then we must apply the power or activate the power Jesus gave us in Luke 10:19 to tread upon serpents, scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt us. David said in Psalm 56:3-4, whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You – referring to God. In the Bible there are so many scriptures that assures us that God is our refuge, strength, help and everything. So why do we allow the enemy to plant doubt and fear in our mind.
Yes, it’s normal for the person who does not believe in God nor His Son Jesus. But as a born again Christian you better apply the Word like Jesus did in Luke 4 and let the enemy know that though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death we shall fear no evil because God is with us as Psalm 23:4 says; His rod and staff comforts us, which are His implanted Holy Spirit when you accept and believe in Jesus’ death, resurrection and His Word in the Bible which has documented all of His promises. Fear should never be a factor in the life of a child of God because Jesus made us more than conquerors as Romans 8:37 points out to us. It’s only when we trust God, that fear will never have dominion over us.
It’s when we look at the size of fear and not our God, who is bigger, that fear paralyzes us. When we start to think of how we are going to handle the problem we fail to give it to God who cares for us and is able to handle the problem as Psalm 55:22 and 1 Peter 5:7 tells us. Instead, we do the same thing He tells us not to do in Proverbs 3:5-6 and that is lean on our own understanding instead of just trusting Him.
So as children of God when trouble, fear, heartache, pain or anything else that’s not of God comes your way instead of wishing you had wings like a dove to fly away as Psalm 55:6 says, let us renew our minds and follow and say what Psalm 55:11 suggests, “In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid of what can man do to me?” The only person we should fear is God, who is able to destroy you completely (Luke 12:4-5; Matthew 10:28-31).
Luke 12:4-5 and Matthew 10:28-31 tells us that God knows everything, even when a sparrow falls; and we are more valuable than the sparrow. So why are we even fearful, because Psalm 91 tells us, He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High God shall abide under the shadow of the almighty and say that He is our refuge and fortress.
