Psalms 34:4-5 (NET) I sought the Lord’s help and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him for help are happy; their faces are not ashamed.
Funbi was really afraid of failing again because she had failed several times in her life. From failure in important exams to failures in trying to start new businesses, she had seen the different colors of failure and was now feeling like a complete failure in life.
But someone shared the gospel of the Lord Jesus to her and she believed it. After accepting the Lord Jesus and beginning to pattern her life according to His word, she realized that her terrible fear of failure was alien to the new life she now had in Christ.
She just entered a relationship that was headed for marriage, but she was so afraid that the relationship wasn’t going to work out. This was how this fear of failure hounded her.
One morning during her quiet time, she came in contact with today’s scripture when she realized that the most effective way to deal with her fears was to seek the Lord and cast them upon Him. Over time, as she learned to do this, she observed that each and every time, she conquered her fears and could now live the victorious life Jesus paid for her on the cross. It took her time to adjust, but with this secret, she conquered all her fears.
Fear is one of the strongest weapons of the enemy against people. It weakens faith and diminishes strength. If a believer can conquer his fears, he has already conquered most of his battle.
David could defeat Goliath because unlike the rest of Israel, he was not afraid of Goliath. Because of this, he could connect to the supernatural dimension through faith. Fear always hinders this connection, so it is important that we learn to overcome our fears because as believers, we are to live the supernatural life naturally.
Go into today knowing that the most effective way to deal with your fears is not to deny them or run away from them, it is to seek the Lord and cast them upon Him (1 Peter 5:7). David understood this secret and could conquer his fears and walk in the faith that ensured his victories. The victory that overcomes the world comes through our faith (1 John 5:4). Fear is one of the biggest inhibitors of faith.
Prayer: Lord, help me always remember to seek you and cast my fears upon you. Help me to always walk in the victory of faith. Amen.Want to be saved? Go here: streamglobe.org/33
