(Never Give In To Fear)
It doesn’t matter the persecutions you’re facing right now: be of good cheer; you’ve already overcome the world, its systems and Satan’s manipulations.
To The Bible Hebrews 13:5-6 NIV
‘Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”
Jesus told us we would face persecutions as long as we were in the world, but also assured us of victory by saying: “…In me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33 RSV). The Word declares: “…You are of God, and have overcome them; for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4 RSV).
You’re not a victim in this world; you’re not at the mercy of Satan or the evil forces that pervade this world. Refuse to fear what Satan or his cohorts tell you because they’ve all been defeated. The only tool Satan uses today is fear, which is the reason you must, at all times, never give into fear. It’s a tormenting spirit and tries to take over the life of the one who accommodates it (Hebrew 2:14-15).
No matter what happens around you, don’t succumb to fear, irrespective of what or who Satan uses to threaten you. Whenever you hear a negative report, don’t speak out or act in fear, because that’s exactly what he wants you to do! Instead say, “I refuse to fear! God hasn’t given me the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. I’m bold!” (2 Timothy 1:7).
I’m a victor in Christ Jesus. I’m more than a conqueror. I have dominion over every situation! I live the triumphant life in Christ every day, because the greater One dwells in me. I recognise and put to work my authority in Christ. Hallelujah!
