Shalom, I LOVE the devotional for today on Jerry Savelle's website!
FREE FROM FEAR
You cannot afford to allow fear into your mind or your heart. It is a faith destroyer and opens a door for the devil to work in your life.
Fear activates Satan, just as faith activates God.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for. Fear is the substance of things dreaded.
Faith is a spiritual force that works for you; fear is a spiritual force that works against you.
“Whom shall I fear, of whom shall I be afraid” (Psalm 27:1)?
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear” (1 John 4:18).
Remember:2 Tim 1:7:
7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control. AMP
Faith comes when your eyes are opened to truth in the Word of God. Find out what the Bible says about your particular fear and meditate those key verses. As faith rises in your heart, fear evaporates, and you close the door on the devil.
Confession: Holy Spirit, I ask you to expose any fear in my heart. I choose to combat every fear inside me with the Word of God and fill my heart with faith.
This site is dedicated to the Truth. The Bible says:
John 17:17 (Amplified Bible)Sanctify them [purify, consecrate them for Yourself, make them holy] by Truth; Your Word is Truth. For the believer in Jesus Christ, knowing God's Word, the Truth, is vital for living the victorious Christian life.
John 8:31-32 (Amplified Bible)31 So Jesus said to those Jews who had believed in Him, If you abide in My word [hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them], you are truly My disciples.32 And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free. The goal here is to provide nuggets of Truth to help you add layer upon layer to your knowledge of God's Word so you can be set free and stay free. Shalom in His love!
