Satan is your enemy and he uses a lot of different tools against you. One of his favorite tools to employ against Believers is fear, because he knows that if he can overcome your faith with fear, that he can leave you on the side of the road in a ditch, wondering what hit you???
At some point when we are just tiny children, fear begins to make its way into our lives. It may be the fear of being left behind, the fear of punishment or the fear of loud noises. Most of our childhood fears can be overcome with just the assurance and realization that we are not alone.
Live life long enough and your fears get bigger and you discover that there are some times that you cannot be anything but alone. Our fear becomes so much more than a feeling, it becomes a leaving, breathing enemy that often paralyzes us and leaves us helpless, afraid and defeated.
In order to overcome this tool of the enemy, we have to remember that we are never alone, because God has promised that He will never leave us or forsake us. The simple reminder that God is with us is often just the power we need to break out of the stronghold of fear.
“The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” -Deuteronomy 31:8
Never allow fear to overcome your faith, instead place your faith in God and allow God and His love, strength and power to overcome any fear that the enemy happens to bring your way. In God, your faith will always overcome fear and lead you to blessing and victory…
