Do you know that fear is contagious? It’s like watching someone yawn, before you know it, you are yawning. Therefore, it is important that we learn not to fear and the only way to do that is to know the depth of the power that lies within you because you are a child of God.
The 20th chapter of Deuteronomy tells us that when we go to battle with our enemy and our enemy might have a lot of weapons and appear to be stronger than we are, we are not to be afraid for “the Lord thy God is with thee.” It goes on to tells us not to allow our hearts to faint because God will fight with us – to save and deliver us. If we become terrified, others will notice that we are afraid and they, too, will become fearful. Fear spreads quickly and how can you win a battle if you go into the battle afraid to fight.
Speak to your fear; speak to your situation that looks like it will destroy you. Words are powerful and Believers have been given authority over serpents; all we need to do is know who we are in Christ and engage in that divine authority that is there to help us. If you are totally surrendered to God, you will become fearless as the enemy flees from you time after time after time.
One of the weapons we have to fight fear is to pray in the Spirit. Praying with words of understanding is powerful but praying in the Spirit puts you on a higher level. The Holy Spirit is in total control and will direct you in this heavenly language that is just between you and your Heavenly Father. If you do not yet have this gift, ask God to touch you and He will activate this part of Himself within you that will only serve to draw you closer to Him.
“For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand and say to thee “fear not, I will help you.” (Isaiah 41:13).
