Wake up child of God! Wake up! Put on your strength which is the armor OF GOD and cloth yourself with HIS beautiful garment of salvation! May you no longer allow a place for idols in your mind, heart, and soul! Stand up! Be who you are purposed to be! Shake the dust off yourself for you have been sitting far too long! Remove the bonds of strongholds from around your neck and be a captive no longer! (Isaiah 52:1-2)
It is time to stand FEARLESS and face of the enemy. No more hesitation, no more cowardice, no more hung heads, shrugged shoulders, turned backs, plugged ears, or blinded eyes! Let’s forge through life FEARLESSLY. That is my goal. Are you in?
Here are some things we can FEARLESSLY do:
We can bravely say goodbye to ‘seasons’
We can courageously live the life God CREATED us to live
We can valiantly forgive immediately, completely, limitlessly, without holding back, without remembering
We can audaciously hope
We can lead boldly (by words and deeds) towards The Truth we currently know
We selflessly take 2nd, 3rd, 4th…or last place
We can dream of a wonderfully exciting future both now and for eternity
We can aspire to be…
We can sing with a happy, joyful heart that is free
We can love without reservation
We can encourage
We can LOVINGLY speak to strangers
We can pray out loud
We can intrepidly expand into unknown places with God
We can expectantly search the deep things of God
We can find our confidence in who we are IN Christ Jesus and be fearlessly unwavering
We can firmly believe God IS who He says He is and can DO what He says He can do; we also can be heroes of faith
We can stand unwaveringly on God’s unshakable ground with clarity of mind and face EVERYTHING
We can fervently proclaim Truth to our own heart
We can stand against the enemy’s tactics with God’s powerful weapons
How do we know we can do these things? Because…
“You will not be afraid of the terror by night, Or of the arrow that flies by day;” Psalm 91:5 We FEARLESSLY believe that with the armor of God we are positively able to obliterate all the fiery darts of the evil one and when we lie down to sleep at night God gives us His peaceful rest. God’s love and power make us FEARLESS.
“The LORD is for me; I will not fear; What can man do to me?” Psalm 118:6 God is our Father. Because we FEARLESSLY believe we get our strength from Him, there is NOT one threat man can muster or that WE can manufacture in our minds that trumps the good God has for us. Not one. If you are born again you are equipped to lead a FEARLESS life.
“I sought the LORD, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears.” Psalm 34:4 God IS our deliverer. His plan of deliverance breaks ALL of the enemy’s strongholds. EVERY SINGLE ONE. He WILL deliver us from ALL our real and fabricated fears.
“Each of them will sit under his vine and under his fig tree, With no one to make them afraid, For the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken.” Micah 4:4 God has the final word. Period. We will sit peacefully and be fulfilled with what HE has allocated to us. NO ONE has the power to rob us of our peace.
“To grant us that we, being rescued from the hand of our enemies, Might serve Him without fear” Luke 1:74 God has rescued us out of the hand of the enemy. We will NOT allow the defeated enemy to continue taunting us with his worn-out, moth-eaten, grasshopper invested, rust laden, rotten lies.
“For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” Romans 8:15 We were ONCE afraid of countless things because we were slaves of fear. But NOW we have the spirit of adoption! Now we are NO LONGER slaves.
“And it will be in the last days, says God, that I will pour out My Spirit on all humanity; then your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. I will even pour out My Spirit on My male and female slaves in those days, and they will prophesy.” Acts 2:17-18 Yes, evil will erupt and become greater in the last days as we are seeing. HOWEVER, God promises that in these days He will POUR OUT His Spirit on all humanity! EXPECT to see an increase of Spiritual things in yourself and in others!
“Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Your heart must not be troubled or fearful.” John 14:27 Jesus is telling us we MUST NOT be fearful. How do we accomplish this? RECEIVE His peace.
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.” 1 John 4:18 God’s perfect love poured into your heart suffocates every bit of fear that desires to hold out and wait to see if you really believe God’s truth. He loves you. So live FEARLESSLY.
In His grace,
