Thought for the Day #287

 

FREE FROM FEAR

 

Romans 8:15    (New American Standard Bible)

 

15For 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!”

 

Many Christians are bound in fear. Their peace is shattered by worry and concern.

 

Many uncertainties and insecurities confront us every day. Our personal well-being and safety is continually challenged. The principles of Godly America, downtrodden by godless, demonically inspired enemies of righteousness, have been all but erased from our society.

 

Godless depravity rules the land.  The tangible cares of life are increasingly difficult to provide. Family responsibilities, economic, and health issues, weigh heavily upon many. Yes, there is much to fear, if you are an unbeliever.

 

Not so, if you are one of God’s chosen, born into his Kingdom as recorded in Acts 2:38.  As a child of God, you have absolutely nothing to fear. He is your Heavenly Father, the provider of your every need.

 

God has destroyed the power of fear imposed upon us by the Devil. Our Lord and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, has broken the power of fear and death.

 

He has replaced the old bondage of carnal corruption and fear with his mighty power and love. The confusion and daily chaos of worldly living has been destroyed. He has given us the ability of a sound mind. We can think and reason clearly as our mind is quickened by the work of the Holy Spirit.

 

God has not given us a spirit of fear. He has given us the ability to live boldly, un-intimidated by the slashing attack of the enemy. He has given us power and authority to overcome the ways of the world and live in victory.

 

Rejoice this day. Walk in authority. Claim your promises. You are a child of God, a joint heir with Jesus Christ. You are of the household of the Almighty, and the Kingdom of Israel. Every promise of His Covenant belongs to you.

 

Prayer:

My Dear Heavenly Father, I want to be strong in my faith. Help me to remember my position in Jesus Christ, my Lord. I know that fear is a lie from the enemy. I want to accept my authority as a child of God. I refuse to live under a spirit of fear, and I choose to walk in your power and faith in the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
