FEAR looks for something to GRAB onto in our lives. It needs something to grab hold of otherwise it can’t affect us and has to pass us by. The GRAB HOLD it looks for is usually a LIE. A lie that we believe that is contrary to the GOSPEL. BELIEVING that lie gives fear something to grab onto in our life.
Most bad behaviour and thinking is a MANIFESTATION of fear in our life. If we don’t deal with the root of fear or the holds of fear we’ll always be combating the manifestations. Insecurity, anxiety, depression, self deprecation, jealousy, manipulation, controlling others, bullying, cowardice, can’t take risks, can’t trust, can’t be confident are all manifestations of fear. That fear is there because it found a lie to grab onto in our life. What is THE LIE you are believing that is causing these things to manifest in your life? “I’m ugly. I’m stupid. No one loves me. I’m not valuable. I deserve punishment. I deserve to be hurt. I don’t deserve to be loved. I don’t deserve good things. I can’t succeed. I can’t be happy. Something bad will always happen. Everyone is against me” and so on and so forth.
There are TWO ELEMENTS to BREAKING fear off our life:
The first is simply the POWER OF GOD that sets us free.
The second is we have to ALIGN our THINKING and BELIEVING to the TRUTH of CHRIST. In other words we need to RENEW OUR MIND. God’s power can set us free from fear but if we don’t renew our minds the fear could keep coming back because it has something to grab onto. REMOVE THE LIE from your life by REPLACING it with the TRUTH of the GOSPEL and that fear will have nothing to hold onto in your life! Consequently all the manifestations of that fear will begin to disappear from your life too!
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].”
“For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,”
“For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
“Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.”
