“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”(Acts 1:8 NKJV).
“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.”
Luke 10:19, ESV
I should say “Since but not If.” Since God be for you, who dare be against you? Quit telling yourself, “I’ll always struggle in this area. I’ll never lose this weight. I’ll never get out of debt.” Change your perspective. You are not weak, defeated, or inferior. You are full of “can do” power. The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives inside you. Tap into that power. Greater is He that’s in you than he that comes against you. You are more than a conqueror.
Now start putting things under your feet. Think of that word tread in today’s Scripture. One translation says “to trample.” God has not only put it under your feet, but He has armed you with authority and strength to be victorious. He has already equipped you. If you will see these obstacles as being under your feet, as being already defeated, a new boldness will rise up. Your faith will activate God’s power in a new way.
I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.
- In Christ Jesus we are completely delivered and set free from all fears. The Perfect Love which is the Love of God casts out all fear.
- NOT living in the Love of God makes us accessible to all kinds of fears.
- Fear has torment.
- Fear is a demonic spirit under the rule of satan.
- When we completely delivered from fears:
A. We will be Bold and Strong in the Lord.
B. We will freely demonstrate love to others and function in the sound mind of Christ.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
