Fear: It’s an emotion that I need to talk about because I lived much of life feeling it. Of something or of someone, I felt afraid. I am so confident in our power to resist fear because I’ve learned how to do it.
Let’s say our body is a house and the spirit of fear is an uninvited guest. It wants to be more than a visitor, it wants permanent residency! When declaring the name of Jesus, I also had to trust in the power so that it didn’t return void.
I want to tell you about a particular time when God showed up and totally showed off. It was a hard, sad time and I almost slipped into a very dark place…. My mother just died in the most brutal way. Details of this event began preventing me from my daily life: such as cleaning a bathroom shower, and locking the door while I’m in there, not walking next to my bed without the lights on, and sitting in my driveway until family arrived so I wouldn’t be alone in the house. This lasted about a week or two but that day in the driveway something happened. As I sat in my car I just started crying and crying and crying some more. How could this have happened? How will I be the same? The only thing I knew to do was pray.
Dear God, I am dying inside, I am so scared and I know this isn’t how I should live. Please God remove this fear from me and the lies I’m believing. Keep me safe in your arms and cover me with the blood of Jesus. SATAN, I rebuke you in the name of Jesus Christ. I will not be afraid, nothing will happen to me, I will not be controlled by fear. Father, the only way I’ll make it through this is if you lift it from me. You are capable and you love me so I trust you will do this for me. I trust you and I love you. Amen
I promise you after that day, I never felt fear regarding that issue again. I stopped locking the bathroom doors while cleaning and allowed my back to be toward windows. I could be home alone and I looked under all my beds to ensure they were safe. I was safe! I was convinced! I am still convinced in the powerful name of Jesus and I trust Him completely. No one can convince me otherwise.
