Isaiah 41:10 ” So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous hand”.
Fear is not my portion but Jesus is my portion. Fear is only a hinderence sent by the enemy to hold us back, to keep us stuck in the same place. Fear is something in our minds that will prevent us from walking into our purpose. It will prevent us from claiming our restoration season and make us doubt the blessings of the Lord. Fear’s design is to keep us stagnate. It usually tries to creep in right when you are on the verge of your breakthrough, your miracle, your biggest blessing. Fear almost always try to overtake the hearts and minds of believers but it is our responsibility to learn its attack and to also learn how to overcome it, to defeat it.
The good news is that God has given us strategy to defeat the enemy and his games. God gave us power, love and a sound mind that will help us to triumph over fear everytime. We must be strong and boldly declare what God said about us in our atmosphere. We must declare the word of God over our lives and the lives of our family. When we become anxious and fearful, God tells us in Isaiah 41:10 to not be afraid because he is with us. That he will give us strength and help us. He said that he will uphold us with his righteous hand. The enemy uses fear to intimidate us, to steal our faith, hope, peace and joy. When fear sneaks in like a thief we must combat it with our faith. We must reject it and replace it with the hope and trust of the Lord. As long as we know that God is with us protecting us and keeping us, as long as we do the work we will have victory over fear. We will be able to do everything that God has called us to do and be able to enjoy the blessings of the Lord while remaining peaceful and joyful in our restoration season.
