Deuteronomy 20:8 (MSG)
The officers will then continue, “And is there a man here who is wavering in resolve and afraid? Let him go home right now so that he doesn’t infect his fellows with his timidity and cowardly spirit.”
There were whispers and sighing by several people in a church when a boy with sight disability still couldn’t see after he had been prayed for. Unfazed by this noise, at the end of the service, the minister sent everyone away except a few of his close associates and the boy’s mother. Standing firm with them in prayer, the Spirit of God revealed to him that the boy needed a creative miracle instead of a healing because the retina of the disabled eye was removed in a surgery previously. This time, they spoke that the boy should receive a new retina, and in a miraculous moment, he recovered his sight.
From the scriptures, we learn from Joshua, Caleb, Gideon, and from our Lord Jesus, that the display of fear and noises of doubt coming from others can constitute spiritual barriers which must be cancelled if we desire to see victory (Num 14:6-9, Judg 6:2-6, Mk 5:36-42, Mk 9:19-25).
Fear is highly contagious and it directly opposes our faith. Like faith, it also comes from what we allow ourselves to hear, see, or feel. The way to handle fear is by canceling it with the Word of God.
Therefore, in making our demands, especially during intercession, we must always ensure that we maintain our focus on God’s Word and be bold enough to send away all noisy doubters, till we are all of one mind (Acts 4:31-32).
