No Fear!

Do you know we’re not supposed to fear the devil? We are supposed to fear God. We are to have so much reverence and respect for Him that we immediately make any adjustment in our lives just to please Him.

When He tells us to do something that looks risky from a natural point of view, we ought to be more concerned about what we will miss if we don’t obey Him, than of what will happen if we do. In other words, when He tells you that you are more than a conqueror, and instructs you to march in and take back some part of your life that the devil has stolen from you, you shouldn’t sit around debating about whether or not you can do it. You should just start marching!

‘Well, I just can’t do that. After all, I’ve been defeated in that area of my life for so long, that I have a poor self-image.’ If that’s what you are thinking, let me tell you something…

If you will serve God, your poor self-image will begin to change, and you will start to see yourself as He sees you. We look so much better in Him! We’ve got to get away from being so self-conscious, so aware of what we think we can or can’t do. That’s what keeps us from entering into our promised land. Instead of simply obeying God, we start to wonder what people will think of us if we march according to His words.

What if I lay hands on someone and they don’t get healed?

What if I start believing for prosperity and go broke?

What will people think of me? How will I look?

Darling, it doesn’t matter how you look! What counts is that you obey God. Once you do that, your reputation will only get better. Once you lose that desire to protect your image, your image gets better in Him. Why? Because when you give your life to Christ, then the image of the Lord Jesus comes forth instead of that image you have of yourself. “Certainly I will be with thee.” God promised that to you just as surely as He did to the Israelites (Exodus 3:12). So whatever God is telling you to do today…or has been telling you to do for some time now, do it! Grab hold of His promise to be with you. That’s what will cause you to live in the supernatural and do the impossible things. Don’t fear the devil. You are more than a conqueror! Rise up and obey God. You’ll have victory for everyone to see!

Declare His word to yourself at all times: “In all things I am more than a conqueror through Him that loves me.” (Romans 8:37)

With love,

MSM.

    MSM, I love this post. Thank you so much for it.

    For me, it’s a reminder of the endless pit of possibilities within me and how I have been stopping myself from tapping into that pit because of fear. Fear of am I good enough? Will it work out? Crippling fears that made me forget I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me and I am more than a conqueror because I have Him. Jesus on the Cross said ‘It is finished’ before He gave up the ghost. I am taking that statement to also mean Fear is finished. Go out and be all I see you as.

    You are so right about the consequences that might result from failure to listen to God’s instructions. If God tells us to do something, definitely He knows we can do it. He said it himself that He will not try us beyond the measure of our faith. When he tells us to do something, we shouldn’t question it because He that sends us on a journey will equip us with all that we need and make sure we succeed, but most of us don’t succeed because of lack of Faith which I believe is as a result of fear. Fear comes in when we are about to do something so important, but we should remember that fear is only an illusion. Also, we should never fear the devil who does not have the capacity to destroy us when we have God on our side.

    Thank you so much for this.
