In the Face of my Fears I Believe that I'm more than a Conqueror...
Opposition and adversity will come, but we must stand firm on our faith. Fear will try to rob us of our victory, but we must face our fears in faith.
1 John 4:18 tells us that there is no fear no love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. My very next book will focus on fear and the years that I was actually tormented by lies from the enemy. It is so important to stay focused on Christ and remain in prayer and the word of God because our battle always starts in the mind. We have a battle in our minds and that is where our enemy is focused. Those fiery darts are coming to bring fear, steal our peace and cause us to doubt in our Heavenly Father.
We have to be encouraged, inspired and motivated to keep looking up to the one that has all power. We have to depend on a loving Father that is not surprised by our failures, fears and doubts but loves us unconditionally. We have to believe that Christ is for us and not against us when the storms of life hit us hard. We have to stay focused and keep our whole Armour of God on (Ephesians 6:10-18) for the day of battle is at hand. God's people are being attacked and the spirit of fear is coming against us like never before. We have to stay prayed up and trusting in the promise that was already made. We already have the victory, but we have to walk by faith and not by sight. Once we take our eyes off of Christ fear will come.
Stay focused, and stay in faith believing that God is fighting our battles. We are not alone and God loves us with an everlasting love. Don't be afraid, but trust and know that this life is temporary, and we have a Heavenly home prepared for us. Let's not get so caught up in these earthly things, but keep our affections above (Matthew 6:33).
Be blessed beloved and remember that we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us (Romans 8:37). As always thanks for the visit and keep looking up!!!
