Fear is the enemy of your dreams. It’s that silent voice that pushes you to loose your passion for life, for your destiny and makes you loose belief of who you are. It’s a powerful weapon that Satan uses against your dreams, goals and destiny. The enemy will stop at nothing until he destroys you, your dreams and anything that that God has called you to do. The bible says:
Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour 1 peter 5:8.
Always remember God overcame fear on your behalf, so you don’t have to leave in fear anymore. I know so much has happened in your life that has caused you to be anxious, worried and fearful but Jesus destroyed that curse when He sacrificed His life for you at Calvary. Fear cannot hold you captive anymore because you are protected by the blood of Jesus.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
It’s very key that you wage war against the spirit of fear and destroy it from its root in Jesus name so that it doesn’t sabotage your life and destiny. You have to stay constantly in Spiritual warfare against the spirit of fear because the enemy is working day and night coming up with strategic tricks/ways to try to destroy you.
“For though we live in the world, we donot wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
You need to be more strategic in your prayer life. God has given you the power to destroy the enemy. Pray without ceasing because every weapon you need to destroy the enemy God has already given it to you.
“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.” Luke 10:19
When the enemy fills your mind with fear resist him with the word of God. Fear comes to stop you from advancing in God. But you can be free from its stronghold in your mind. You can take authority over fear when it tries to rise up against your soul.
“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Eph. 6:11-17
So every time the feelings of fear and anxiety try to come against you, your dreams and destiny declare the following scriptures upon your life and feed your mind with the word of God daily. Thats how you overcome fear!!!
“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”
2 Timothy 1:7
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.
I promise you what I promised Moses: “Wherever you set foot, you will be on land I have given you … No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live. For I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will not fail you or abandon you. Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them. Be strong and very courageous .
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.
Do not fear, for you will not be ashamed; Neither be disgraced, for you will not be put to shame; For you will forget the shame of your youth, And you will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.
Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.
Declare this prayer:
Father, in the name of Jesus I come to You and ask you to forgive me for giving in to feelings of fear. I rebuke the spirit of fear that is working to steal my dreams, destiny, entrap me, steal my faith, rob my peace, joy and feel me with anxiety, in Christ’s name. I choose faith, trust, and love. I fear and trust the Lord only, in the name of the Christ. Amen.
