1 John 4:18
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
Today’s Inspiration: Extreme fear dawns on men as their adversity seems to grow worse. The Bible speaks much of the heart and the mind. Prophet Isaiah wrote in Isaiah 8:13 &14 that we should fear only Him who is holy and our dread as He has become a sanctuary for us. He has made us to be in His image to be for signs and wonders. Isaiah 8:18.
The spiritual authority given to us demands freedom from fear for perfect love casts out fear. 1 John 4:18. Instead of fear of the uncertainty, our delight should be in the fear of the Lord and our reliance for breakthrough is upon Him exclusively. We should not judge by the circumstances we see nor decide by what we hear. Isaiah 11:3. When we make choices based on what we see, without consulting the Lord, there is likelihood of failure. Our choices determines our future.
Fear and anxiety comes from our heart. If we truly believe in Christ and that He dwells in us, there is nothing to fear. To fear means there is a problem with your faith and relationship with God. We can only overcome obstacles and attain victory by our faith. Romans 5:4.
Our goal in life is to have the heart to know the Lord of the Bible where truth is revealed to set us free. John 8:32. We must not be distracted from the truth that Jesus is the way, the Truth and the Life. John 14:6. To be distracted from the devotion to Christ would result in flesh taking control of our life instead of the spirit resulting in wavering of faith. Those with fullness of faith have seen miraculous provision beyond their expectation.
We are in the transition stage of the birth of a new movement with God’s people emerging in power as they work on their new inward man during this period of circuit breaker. It is in this transition stage that we have more clarity of purpose and strength to take great exploits for God as we earnestly seek Him with all our heart. Therefore remove anxiety from your heart and rest in the Lord for spiritual renewal that grant you strength and faith to be an overcomer. God be praised.
