Romans 8:16-17 (NET) The Spirit himself bears witness to our spirit that we are God’s children.
Benise was a believer who lived a very disciplined life but was also a very miserable believer because she lived in the fear of going to hell and had no assurance of salvation. Because of this fear, other fears found expression in her life and she was now a slave to fear.
She got delivered from the dominion of fear after she heard and meditated on the words of an Anointed song that went thus: “I’m longer a slave to fear, I am a child of God… ”
After listening to the song over and again, she realized that all the fear in her heart was devilish. She sought to be delivered permanently and realized that the answer was in being filled with the Spirit.
The infilling of the Spirit takes away fears (see Romans 8:15, 2 Timothy 1:7).
One of the surest signs that a believer is filled with the Spirit is that he would have the assurance of salvation. This assurance takes away the fear of death(both spiritual and physical). It gives us boldness and boosts our faith in receiving from God because we know that He is our heavenly Father who loves us even more than an earthly father loves and cares for his children.
Go into today thanking the Lord for the Holy Spirit that brings assurance of salvation and gives you boldness to walk in your liberty as a child of God.
Prayer: Ask the Lord to deliver you from anything seeking to hinder your devotion to spiritual disciplines that make for a spirit-filled life.
