Today’s Positive Words of Affirmation and Encouraging Words to Live By: “Today I will walk fear free, bold and unhindered!”
LIVING FEAR FREE
What would you do if you had no fear? Would you open that business, write that book, or buy that house? Would you be bold enough to believe God for His best?
I am here today to encourage you that you can overcome fear! Through Christ who lives in you, there is no need to fear and no need to be hindered. You are not only a Superhero on assignment you are a Christ filled, Holy Ghost inspired man or woman of God. We have a saying in this house – “No fear here!”
How though? How can you live fear free?
FEAR IS A SPIRIT
Scripture says that fear is a spirit. 2 Timothy, …”For God has not given us a spirit of fear…” Since fear is a spirit, and you through Christ have overcome all things that try to come against you, you can overcome that spirit of fear simply by not receiving it!
The key to overcoming fear is to become confident in who you are and the power that you have to cast down anything that tries to exalt itself above the Word of God. If there is no Word of God in you… here are some scriptures that will certainly help!
“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” John 14:27
“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
“Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.” John 14:1
“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
“Peace be with you.” John 20:19
“And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Phil 4:7
“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Col 3:14
“We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Cor 10:5
BIND THE STRONG MAN
In Matthew 12:29, Jesus asks a very simple question, “How can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man?” The devil (or thief) has no power over you unless he can first overtake you. He can not overtake you if you don’t let him tie you up! What is the rope he carries? FEAR! Fear entangles you, and paralyzes you are keeps you from being fruitful. The devil doesn’t want you fruitful.. he wants you tied up! Today is a day to focus on overcoming the enemy in faith, casting down and binding the enemy, and a day to stand in faith that Christ has overcome the world- that we could live FEAR FREE. Today is YOUR day! Victory is the Lords!
If you have never cast the enemy down, many preachers preach deliverance in different ways. I always thank the Father for binding the devil, and in authority we can ‘cast’ out demons. My prayer usually goes like this, “Thank you Father God for binding the devil in the name of Jesus. Thank you for binding him from our finances, our home, our family, our friends, and our children. Thank you Lord for your blood and for Your Word that says that we have been given the power to cast out demons. I speak to the spirit of (xyz- you can put anything here, fear , stress, anxiety, anything that comes against the Word of God) FEAR in JESUS’ name and I command it to be gone! Fear be gone!”
My Prayer today-
Father God be with Your children today and lift them up. Show them that there is no need to receive the spirit of fear. Show them Father God that is it by Your power and the faith that they have in You, that they can go about their day fear free, overcoming all fear and intrepidation. This is the day that You have made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. We will drive out fear with a shout of praise, and we will remember You in our victory! Thank You Father for Your Word, we love You and love YOUR peace of mind that following You brings! In Your Son Jesus’ name… AMEN!
God Bless you today as you walk fear free!
Did you know??
Did you know that on August 7, 1974, shortly after 7:15 a.m a small in stature French man tightrope walked between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center?!
Philippe Petit walked the wire for 45 minutes, making eight crossings between the towers, a quarter mile above the sidewalks of Manhattan. In addition to walking, he sat on the wire, gave knee salutes and, while lying on the wire, spoke with a gull circling above his head. An observer of the miraculous feet from 1,368 ft below said,
“I observed the tightrope ‘dancer’—because you couldn’t call him a ‘walker’—approximately halfway between the two towers. And upon seeing us he started to smile and laugh and he started going into a dancing routine on the high wire….And when he got to the building we asked him to get off the high wire but instead he turned around and ran back out into the middle….He was bouncing up and down. His feet were actually leaving the wire and then he would resettle back on the wire again….Unbelievable really….Everybody was spellbound in the watching of it.”
What has God given you a vision to do? Today is a good day to get that project started! NO FEAR HERE!
