God has given us His “Dunamis” Power, the same power Jesus possessed when He walked on the earth. “The Holy Spirit” (Acts 1:8).
Maybe you feel you are at the end of your rope now. The devil’s major tool is fear. God does not want you and I to be bound by the spirit of fear. Yes, Fear is a spirit. A spirit of darkness assigned by Satan to torment our minds and hold us back from advancing and making progress in life. God does not intend for any of us to be tormented or possessed by the spirit of fear. God has given us His own Spirit, The HOLY SPIRIT. The Spirit of Power, Love and Sound Mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)
The fearlessness, the kind of courage and boldness that God intends to release through our lives is imparted to us by the Holy Spirit. “ But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8).
Take for example the disciples of Jesus, they all failed miserably. Every one of them deserted Jesus at the most difficult time of His life on earth, His trial and death. Now, think of the fact that God was willing to entrust His grand plan for salvation of the entire world to these people, it sounds ridiculous! But then, look at what happened to these guys after they encountered the Holy Spirit. They were totally transformed!
In a just a matter of few years, they turned the world upside down. They were able to impact every region of the world with the gospel message entrusted to them without any form of technology or media communication tools of our day. How? Because they were fully yielded to the Holy Spirit working through them. They were willing to trust God’s plan for their lives.
Beloved, please don’t allow your mind to be filled with fearful thoughts. Don’t tolerate the spirit of fear in the least. Learn to recognize fear before it begins to torment your mind and take charge of your thoughts. “For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. 5 We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5)
God as made the way clear. He has given us the Word to navigate our way forward in life. God has revealed His will to us through His Word. And so, we don’t ever have to be in doubt or be anxious, because through the Holy Spirit living in us we can know God’s will and direction for us in every circumstance we face in life. “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” (Romans 8:14). As children of God, we are supposed to be led by His Spirit. Friend, be encouraged, trust and submit to the Holy Spirit’s leading for your life.
“I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].” (Philippians 4:13.).
Thank you, heavenly Father, that you are my shield and refuge. I have found safety under the might shadow of your wings. God has delivered my soul from death and every affliction. I don’t have a timid spirit, God has given me the Spirit of Power, Love and a Sound Mind in everything pertaining to my life. My strength is renewed in the Word of God daily. My head is lifted like an eagle above fear and every lie of the devil. I will never give up on my breakthrough, I command every wall preventing my progress to fall in Jesus name! God has positioned me for victory. By faith I put on the whole armour of God over every strategy of the devil, no evil scheme will prevail over me and my family. I confess that I can do all things through Christ who gives me the strength. Nothing can hold me back. The Power of dominion is mighty in me. I walk in the Authority of Christ. Everywhere I go, I take territories, advancing the kingdom of God on earth by the power of the Holy Spirit. In Jesus Name. Amen.
