I am fearful of many things. I tremble in fear at times. I go into my bedroom and cry over all of my fears that plague me, which in turn has had a negative effect on my self-esteem and how I see myself. Every time that I feel fear, I pray. I pray in order to fight off the fears that face me so that I have no fear of the future and whatever comes. This is because I know that whatever comes, fear will not control on my life anymore.
~”For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”~2 Timothy 1:7, NKJV~
Today, I have decided to not give into fear. I had a choice to make: I could either allow fear to control my thought patterns and how I think or I can take the thought of fear captive to the Lord and allow for Him to deal with it in the way that He wants to handle this negative emotion. Fear has run my life for far too long, pushing away my friends and family and holding me in bondage to myself and the devil.
Even though I could go back to the old way that I used to think (which were most of the times thought patterns related to fear), this would be a hindrance in my walk with Lord because it would hinder me from walking in the victory that my Father bestowed upon me, as His adopted daughter.
I am not afraid. I am unafraid. I am not frightful. I am brave. I am not fear. I am fearless, in the Name of Jesus Christ. This is because God gave me, His daughter, a spirit of power to put fear to death, unconditional love for people of all different walks of life, and a sound mind (meaning I can control the thoughts that I think and the words that I speak over my life with unshakable confidence).
This means that in this moment, I am not going back. I won’t go back. I am never ever going back because God meant for me to live out and walk out in victory all of the time. Therefore, I have no reason to surrender my life or give me up to fear. Fear has no control over my life anymore. I am brave by the power of the Holy Spirit. I am brave for Jesus Christ. I am brave by the saving grace of my Heavenly Father. I am brave, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
~”Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”~John 9:62, NIV~
I thank God for freeing me today. I thank God for delivering my soul from fear. I thank God for liberating me from that controlling and demonic spirit called fear. I thank God for freeing me from the control that fear had over my life. I have a spirit of self-control, by the power of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, I think brave thoughts instead of fearful thoughts as I give up fear at the feet of my King.
I don’t do fear. I don’t do fear because I am not fear. I am brave for my friends. I am brave for my family. Fear no longer controls my soul. I won’t let it dictate my life. The power of the Holy Spirit broke this thought free from me today as I took it captive to the Lord. Therefore, I am free because my Deliverer set me free from fear today, in the Name of Jesus Christ. THANK YOU JESUS! HALLELUJAH!
