Anti Fear!

Let me just say this right up front – I hate fear, with all my heart and soul.  I will wage war against fear in people’s lives until the day I leave this planet.  

If fear drives your decisions, they’ll never be good ones. No matter what we call it, you know all the terms, anxiety, nervousness, insecurity, it’s all the same, it’s fear. 

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

2Ti 1:7 NKJV

See!  Scripture reveals fear to be a spirit. It’s not an emotion it’s something living and it’s dark and it wraps itself around our hearts, torments our minds, twists a knot in our belly and leaves us in a foggy, shaky, lead footed, state of confusion.  It yells shamingly “make a decision, quick quick, your life is in danger, flee flee, fall down in the fetal position and whimper you whoose!” all at the same time.

I’ve been told time and time again (by far greater men than I), never make big decisions in a trough (the opposite to a life peak). They’re never good decisions. They’re always filled with over compensations and fear based knee jerk reactions.  The decision we need to make in a trough is this . . . I will turn to God, I will trust God, I declare God is my hope and my fortress.  Holy Spirit speak to me from your perfection and love!

You see i’ve got another announcement to make. Scripture states “perfect love casts out all fear”- so there should not ever be a scared or frightened or confused Christian . . . That’s right!  No condemnation intended here. Keep reading.

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.

1Jo 4:18 NKJV

The perfect love of God has enveloped our lives in the form of the perfect sacrifice, the perfect act of the perfect Love. His name is Jesus. That’s the amazing scenario that happens when we make Jesus Lord.

The last sentence in the above scripture reveals our battle over fear is a journey.  The closer we get to God, the more we surrender to HIS love and HIS leading, the less we’ll fear. We are being perfected as we grow, some instantly, some in line with the growth of walk and freedom in time. But I tell you, this world needs us, the fearless people of the most high God!

He is amazing and makes us amazing!
