Why are you afraid?
Fear is the big bully. Fear speaks loudly. Fear shouts at you. Fear comes at you in your sleep. Fear and faith in God do not mix. Fear and happiness do not mix. Fear and courage do not mix. Fear and hope do not mix. Clear thinking and fear do not mix.
Imagine living one day without rejection, regret or failure. Imagine one full day without fear.
God gave you a Spirit of courage in HIM, strength in HIM, love in HIM, confidence in HIM, and trust in HIM. Fear takes away your sound mind. God gave you a sound mind. You can invite in fear or slam the door on fear. Open the door and invite in the Spirit of God’s power, love and a sound mind. In Christ Jesus there is no fear because perfect love, perfect trust, and perfect confidence in God cast out fear.
Imagine yourself as a walking dead person. Your body is dead yet your Spirit is alive. This is a fearless state of living. The Apostle Paul saw himself as a walking dead man.
However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me-the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace. Acts 20:24
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. Philippians 1:21
Your life in Christ allows you to live without fear. You can rest on the promises of God. You can rest in HIS strength and love. You can rest in what HE has done.
When fear shapes your life it becomes your god. It becomes what you bow down to and worship. Don’t fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Matthew 10:28
Walk in the confidence of the resurrected Christ Jesus who set you free from the prison of sin and death. Claim your identity in Christ as an heir of God and a joint heir with Jesus Christ. You are a child of God. You are in the family and body of Christ. You are a son and daughter of Jesus. You are holy and righteous and sealed with the blood of the lamb of Jesus Christ. You walk in the favor of being a King’s Kid. Walk today in the confidence of God and speak of the hope you have in Christ Jesus. You have an eternal home. You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
