LET’S TALK ABOUT FEAR
Fear in the dictionary is defined as an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm, but the bible defines Fear as a spirit, how?
- 2Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Fear as a spirit has the ability to study human behavioral patterns, hence, as fear approaches, it recognises the absence of an acknowledgment of inherent power, this observation affords it an opportunity to thrive in such atmospheres.
We're in the times where fear is being projected based on the current earth realities but God gave us victory already in power, love and sound mind.
POWER: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth, which means by identity we host God's power, all he's asking is that we lean in by surrendering and acknowledging. In this lies our victory.
LOVE: He says his banner over us is love and yes he does love us with his everlasting love, EVERLASTING!its time we pause and think beyond the sweet melody of EXCESS LOVE but dig in deep for understanding, sing it as a Revelation! THE VICTORY IS FOUND IN HIS LOVE all he wants is for us to EMBRACE HIS LOVE.
SOUND MIND: That's the grace He made available in his intelligence. He says Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. The rest is the assurance in his promises that you should not Fear for he's with you: be not dismayed; for he's your God: he will strengthen you; yea, he will help you; yea, he will uphold you with the right hand of his righteousness.
With so much negativity in the air right now, fear is what the devil leans on as the entry point into so many areas of your life, presenting fear as an innocent logical delicacy which is unconsciously but voraciously consumed, forming your daily reality.
Fear makes you forget the goodness of God in your life, makes your soul forget to bless the lord with all that's within it.
Fear can be so powerful that it requires three dimensions in the Spirit, His Power, Love, Sound Mind to conquer it.
Never be bullied into thinking that Your faith in God is a denial of all earth's negative realities NO! Faith recognises those realities and speaks to them.
God’s request in this season is for you to lean completely in him and his words so our spirit being finds expression.
It’s time to personalize it!
For God hath not given me(Olaoluwa Alabi) the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2Timothy 1:7
