2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Uche was a very fearful person and he knew this. Somehow he knew that this fearfulness of heart was greatly limiting him in life. One day he read the Bible verse above and realized that he could walk above fear through the power of the Holy Spirit within him (Rom 8:13). He realized that fear was a work of the flesh and not a fruit of the Spirit, and he started resisting fear in his life by confessing the word of God and determining never again to act according to fear.
Fear is not a virtue but a vice. It should be fought with all diligence. Whenever a believer observes that he is becoming fearful, he should fight it and ensure that he overcomes it by the power of the Holy Spirit. Remember that we wrestle through prayers (see Eph 6:12, 18).
A fearful person cannot truly consistently walk in love, power and sound mind. A fearful person will easily become suspicious, and a suspicious person cannot be a loving person. Remember that Perfect love drives away fear (1 John 4:18).
A fearful person will not be able to walk in God’s great power because fear inhibits faith. Fear limits spiritual capacity and power. Satan used fear to root unbelief and hinder the people of Israel from entering the Promised Land and receiving their inheritance.
A fearful person cannot have a sound mind because his judgments and vision in life will be distorted by fear.
Go into today knowing that through the power of the Holy Spirit, you have power over fear. Do not let it rear its ugly head in your life.
Confession: I walk above fear in Jesus’ name. Amen.
