Fear You Don’t Own Me!
This is lengthy, warning! But, it will help you I believe. Pulled it from a book I’m writing (slowly lol). I didn’t want to cut any of it bc there is someone who is going to read it all….. and that is worth the writing of it, even for one!😘👍❤🙏🙌🏼
Stop allowing fear to drive you.
You don’t have to push people or have a fear that people are not going to “catch” the things of God. You don’t have to worry or fear that if you “don’t do this” then they could possibly “do this” or “get this” or “become that”. When things seem to be a struggle; you see physically a slow slipping away of good things- you don’t have to start grabbing them, freaking out in fear that if you don’t do something to stop it, it could be the last!
What happened when you were in that state? Did you drift off and never come back to the Lord? Did you listen when others spoke to you? Well, I’m sure you did at some point, but it was when you were ready to listen. Does it mean you should not talk to them? No! Show Christ? Absolutely, you should! Stop giving them encouragement? Nope! Mark them as a lost cause, I sure would hope not!
That’s where perfect love comes in. That’s where the peace of God that surpasses all your understanding to guard your heart, soul, and mind by Christ Jesus comes to play. The most powerful thing you can learn to do is PRAY. Declare. Know the Word of God and make it known to the enemy that you know how to fight this spiritual warfare, that you know the promises of God and that with God, you cannot be stopped nor can His promises for you and your family when the Word of God is spoken, believed, and stood on!
I think of a scripture
“And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?””
Acts 19:15 NKJV
I grabbed ahold of this scripture the first time I heard it and read it. I remember saying to myself, “oh, the enemy is going to know who I am, and He’s going to know I know who I am and the power I am coming with!”
With this, there is no more room for fear to operate. We have ALL of heaven backing us up. When we open our mouth and even just say the name of Jesus, God and His Holy Spirit step on the scene and begin working on our behalf! Imagine if you had some scripture of what Gods word says about the situation! The enemy wants to stop that flow by getting our minds thinking on all the what if’s and the could be’s, but we can squash that with Gods PERFECT work- His love that came down in the form of a man, lived a blameless life, walked with the Father, heard His voice, was guided in His life, died on the cross taking ALL of our guilt, shame, sin, regrets, and imperfections- nailing them in place once and for all…. going down to hell, snatching the keys of life!!!!! And power!!!!!! And then ascending to heaven to hand them to our Father, brought back once more for us to begin tapping into what He has fulfilled in prophecy, and what we are to carry out until He comes back again! The same spirit that raised Christ from the dead DWELLS, LIVES, RESTS ON THE INSIDE OF US!
The power to move mountains!
The power to calm a raging sea!
The power to speak His name!
The power to heal the sick!
The power to raise the dead!
The power to speak words into life,
Causing the Word to begin producing!
This power sits in your mouth, in your belly,
And is always ready to be launched into motion!
The ONLY ONE that can stop this, is you.
Fear will cause you to keep your mouth closed. Say you can’t. Say it works for everyone else but me. Well let’s address that lie:
“Then Peter opened his mouth and said: “In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality.”
Acts 10:34 NKJV
He wants to set us ALL free! Redeem us all! Give US the kingdom and ALL that is in it. He wants US to walk on this earth with the same power & authority as JESUS did.
Jesus went to the poor, the sick, the hungry & hurting. I didn’t find it where he stayed “comfortable”. It’s time to kick fear out once and for all. What is there to be afraid of when God is for you? God is on your side? The creator of heaven & earth, the creator of you & all you are in and around?
Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land. For I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
God loves you. He is for you not against you. He cares about you, your family, and what goes on in YOUR day (as ultimately it is His day He has created just for you to live in). Get intimate with Him- meaning find Him behind closed doors! Open up your heart and let Him remove the heart of stone, and all that is ugly, filthy, and things that He never put in there when He created you…. and FIND LIFE! Then, live it to the glory of the Lord God, being about your Fathers Business until the day of the Lord! You will find more joy, peace, fulfillment, and purpose than you have ever known before, trust me!
