The Lord is saying, "Fear Not!"

Walking in fear as a child of God is a great disappointment to our father God. He has not given us the spirit of fear, but of love, power and sound mind.
Read 2 Timothy 1:7
"For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline."
God has given us everything. All it takes of us is to dominate and overcome.
Read 1 John 4:4
"You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world." And has equipped us for battle
Read Ephesians 2:6
"And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,"
As a child of God, God has given every power and authority to subdue the enemy. There is a need for you to discover your position in Christ.
You have to abide in Christ and exercise power and authority given to you. There is no way the devil (principalities and the powers of darkness) can touch you.
You need to know: -
1. Who you are in Christ
2. Where are you seated with Jesus.
Say - I am a child of God and seated in the heavenly  realm with Christ Jesus.
The Lord is saying 'Fear not!'
Fear is a weapon of the enemy.
Fear becomes a gate for the enemy to get access into our lives.
Fear is one of the weapons of witchcraft.
It brings confusion and no peace.
Read 2 Kings 9:22
'When Joram saw Jehu he asked, “Have you come in peace, Jehu?”
  “How can there be peace,” Jehu replied, “as long as all the idolatry and witchcraft of your mother Jezebel abound?”'
Say - I will not open the door for fear to come in. I open the door of my heart for Jesus to come in.
Read Revelation 3:20
"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me."
Now Christ is in your heart and He is greater that the devil, who is in the world.
Say - The Lord is saying 'Fear Not!'
1. You are a child of God.
Read John 1:12
"Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—"
2. You are the apple of God's eyes.
Read Deuteronomy 32:10
"In a desert land he found him,
  in a barren and howling waste.
He shielded him and cared for him;
  he guarded him as the apple of his eye,"
3. You are an over-comer.
Read 1 John 4:4
"You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world."
4. God favors you.
Read Romans 8:31
"What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?"
So what are you going to do?
Say - Pursue peace!
Say - The Lord is saying fear not!
You must know that the agenda of the devil is to make you sin. Thus sin becomes a gate.
Avoid physical confrontation.
The battle is not physical but spiritual.
Sin will not allow the peace of God to rule over you.
So what must you do?
1. Initiate reconciliation to the best of your ability.
2. Do not turn your anger to wrath.
3. Do not quarrel or argue.
4. Love your enemy. (The devil uses family members or people around you to go against you.
Say - Pursue peace!
Say - The Lord is saying fear not!
5. Be tolerant and have wisdom of God.
Read Job 20:4-5
“Surely you know how it has been from of old, ever since mankind was placed on the earth, that the mirth of the wicked is brief, the joy of the godless lasts but a moment."
6. Ask the grace of God to be upon you. Do not be tempted to react in the flesh. It is a spiritual fight.
7. Pray for everything it will paralyze the demonic activities.
8. Don't rush to speak unnecessarily.
Read Micah 7:5
Do not trust a neighbor; put no confidence in a friend. Even with the 
woman who lies in your embrace guard the words of your lips."
Father in the name of Jesus.
I release the fire of God against the spirit of fear. I believe Jesus
lives in me always.
