We are no stranger to fear. Fear is our enemy and it attacks any and everyone. It is Satan's biggest way of keeping us from enjoying life and fulfilling the purpose God has for us. Fear brings torment and it paralyzes us. When fear enters your life it has a way of overtaking you, closing the door on God and not allowing you to hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. Fear attacks your mind and your emotions and will keep you in a state of anxiety. When overtaken by fear you cannot accomplish God's will in your life and every dream and goal that you have for yourself just takes a back seat and lay dormant. 2 Timothy 1:7 reads, For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and of a sound mind; so take comfort and be encouraged today. Know that God is your helper and there is not anything that man can do to you. God is on your side, He is with you. Rather than give in to fear, learn to boldly confess that God is helping you. Know that He is your refuge and your strength. Watch always and pray often so you will not succumb to fear. Be alert and watch for the attacks that the enemy launches against your mind. Learn to pray immediately because prayer releases the power to counter attack the fear and every other circumstance that may be present in your lives. I encourage you to live in the freedom that Christ has given to us. It is only then that we can overcome the wiles of the devil. I encourage you to dedicate yourself to prayer, draw close to God and He will be close to you, then His presence will increase in your life and His perfect love will drive out all fear (John 4:18) and you will have the victory!
