Last night, I was speaking with a friend on the phone and I told her how fear is one of the most prominent emotions (and I personally believe a spirit) I remember having my entire life. The bible says that God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of love, power and a sound mind (self-control).
You see, I believe the enemy uses fear as a way to keep us from soaring to our highest and best purpose in life. It’s like an airplane with too much weight, baggage or cargo. Have you ever been on a plane and the pilot wouldn’t take off because they had to get rid of some of the weight or the plane wouldn’t fly at its optimum speed or even worse, crash upon take off? What do they do? They wait until they remove some of the weight. Then, they take flight.
Fear is excess baggage in our lives and until we are free from its domination, we won’t be able to take off and soar the way God intended. So, my prayer for you today is that fear will loose the hold it’s had on your mind, your soul and your spirit. I pray that you will not only defeat that spirit every time it tries to come back, but that you will enter into a place of total deliverance from it’s power. The Lord is your light and your salvation, whom shall you fear? (KJV again. LOL ) In other words, your creator has conquered fear and has made you an overcomer because you are made in His image and likeness. I speak freedom over your life. I declare that you will no longer be afraid of anything or anyone and that you will go from fearful to fearless so you can take off and fly as high as God will take you. If you receive it, say, ‘Amen.’
