“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind”.(II Timothy 1:7 NKJV).
So if God didn’t give you fear, who did? That low down good for nothing, lake of fire bound devil. So reject fear, tell the devil to go to hell with it.
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love”.(I John 4:18 NKJV).
The devil’s job is to steal, kill, and destroy. Don’t let him lead, nor entice you down that highway to hell.

No One To Fear
At some point in our life we need to be reminded of God’s love and faithfulness and give Him all the praise, honor and glory.
“The Lord is my Light and my Salvation.
Who is there to fear?
The Lord is my life’s Fortress.
Who is there to be afraid of?
Evildoers closed in on me to tear me to pieces.
My opponents/enemies stumbled and fell.
Even though an army sets up camp against me, my heart will not be afraid.
Even though a war breaks out against me,
I will still have confidence in the Lord.
I have asked one thing from the Lord, this will I seek:
To remain in the Lord’s house all the days of my life in order to gaze at the Lord’s beauty and search for an answer in His temple.
He hides me in His shelter when there is trouble.
He sets me high on a rock.
Now my head will be raised above my enemies who surround me.
I will sing and make music to praise the Lord.
Hear O Lord, when I cry aloud.
Have pity on me and answer me.
When You said, ” Seek My face,”
My heart said to You,
“O Lord, I will seek Your face.”
Do not hide Your face from me.
Do not angrily turn me away.
You have been my help.
Do not leave me!
Do not abandon me, O God my Savior!
Even if my father and mother abandon me,
The Lord will take care of me.
Teach me Your way, O Lord.
Lead me on a level path because I have enemies who spy on me. Do not surrender me to the will of my opponents.
False witnesses have risen against me.
They breathe out violence.
I believe that I will see the goodness of the Lord in this world of the living.
Wait with hope for the Lord.
Be strong, and let your heart be courageous.
Yes, wait with hope for the Lord.
Dear Lord, I thank You, that You, the God of heaven and earth, are also my Light and my Salvation. You give me strength and guard my heart. When I remember that You are with me and for me, I realize that I have nothing to be afraid of, and no one to fear. Nothing can violate the love You have for me. As I go my way today, Lord, I will keep in mind I have nothing to fear, and trust, believe and follow You Lord Who love me deeply. Thank You Lord. In Jesus loving and precious name, I pray, Amen…
