Finished with Fear

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

Hola SPARKIES! emoticon

This message truly blessed me! One of the things I emphasized towards the end of '09 is that I need to FACE MY FEARS head on! So this message really RECONFIRMED what was already revealed to me. I pray that it ministers to your heart and the heart of your loved ones!

Don't be afraid to face your fears! emoticon




TODAY'S SCRIPTURE

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline"
(II Timothy 1:7, NLT)

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria

So many people today are missing out on God's abundant life of joy, peace, and victory because they keep giving in to fear. They are afraid to make a decision, they are afraid to confront issues, they're afraid to step out in faith, they're afraid of the past, and they're afraid of the future. But as believers, we don't have to live that way.

Fear is not from God. God has given you power, and His power is greater than the power of any of your fears. You have to make a decision to deal aggressively with fear. You can't be passive and expect to live in victory. The only way to conquer fear is to confront it head on. As long as you're running from your fears, just ignoring them, or sweeping them under the rug, you're not going to get any better. Refusing to deal with fear doesn't make it go away. Instead, decide to be finished with fear. Be strong-willed and determined knowing that the enemy is defeated.

Today, declare God's Word that says you can be bold and strong! Be finished with fear so you can move confidently into the destiny He has in store for you!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

"Father God, thank You for giving me power to overcome fear. I choose to face fear head on and drive it out of my life. Show me any areas of my life where fear is holding me back so that I can press forward into the life of victory You have for me. In Jesus' Name. Amen."

    I am reading, "Fearless", by Max Lucado. You would love this book! I recommend it. It's where I chose to get my new Spark name from, because ConsiderTheLilies was taken. Carol

    Thanks for this! I actually had been thinking about the same thing lately...and this morning heard my Pastor on the radio preaching a similar message and now I read this, so I know I must internalize this a practice a fearless existence in God!

    Thank-you for posting this. I really needed to hear this right now since I have faced defeat and set backs so many times when trying to get fit.Fear threatens to take hold and push me back from being fulfilled in this part of my life, but I am reminded that I must lay it down at the foot of the cross. "There is no fear in love"
