I will no longer allow you to control my emotions and cause me to guess the anointing over my life. I refuse to let the fear of rejection hold me back from giving love. I refuse to let the enemy use me as a pond in his game. I will operate in the obedience of the Lord. I will dwell in the fullness of MY calling. I will walk with no apologizes for God’s grace is sufficient to cover my needs. I will no longer except others to fill me up because it’s only by Christ that I can drink the living water that can fill my cup and provide the overflow. Your presence ,FEAR, in my life can no longer take the front seat. You must get in the back and watch God work.
You better understand your place,

Have you ever let Fear control the decisions in your life, and then get frustrated with how it worked out? Have you ever not been obedient to the word of God because of what others may call you?
Well, I can say Yes……Yes……..and…….Yes again! I have operated in the fear of disappointing my parents so I completed a degree I really didn’t want. Then I had the nerve to be frustrated about wasting my money and time. I have let someone speak over my life and followed their word because they were “older”, causing me to not be obedient to the Lord, only for God to send more people to ask me
“ What are you doing? “
I have let fear completely shut off my emotions and place a 50 foot wall to guard my heart. I have let fear of others opinions cause me to be ashamed to be apart of Christ. I would hide my drive to know the Lord in order to please people in my own family.
I could go one and on with stories of me limiting my capabilities and the Power of the grace of God over my life. BUT, it wasn’t until I realized Fear’s position and that I didn’t have to be controlled by fear that I became FREE. Somethings you gotta get sick and tired of before it can break in your life. This attitude creates a desire to find a solution to your problem without someone trying to beg you or twist your arm because it’s all how you perceive somethings.
Fear by itself is a rightful thing. It’s a holy thing. It’s a Godly thing when it is placed in the right position. Fear helps us understand danger. It allows us to measure the effect of something may have in our life. A holy fear causes you to honor God due to his position. When does fear become improper? Fear is improper when you let fear dictate your life….. now it’s a distracting spirit!!! So how do you get released from this improper label in your life?
You ask what is the root cause of your fear? Does my fear come from a place of honor or distrust? Does my fear come from a place of man’s power over the power of Christ ?
What is the root?
Once you understand the root, next thing is what does the word say concerning the matter?
2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
1 John 4:18
18 Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love.
3 But when I am afraid,
I will put my trust in you.
SO What Does That Mean??????
We have a choice to go before God and ask him to remove the spirit of Fear surrounding our situation. And when he removes it, he will empower us with the peace of Christ. As we receive his peace, we can walk in power, love and the self-discipline to walk in wisdom.
You have not because you ask not! Could we be operating in fear because Satan has tricked us to believe we can’t ask God to remove it? We believe the situation has more power than the God who created it all. We have placed the power of God under the Power of man and his ability to manipulate people, things or opposition. And because of that we are suffering when we do not have to. So how long do you need to suffer?
When I realized this, my spiritual eyes opened and I started operating in the authority I didn’t earn, but was given as my birthright in Christ. It’s like a prince begging for food when he has the authority to command the Kingdom not because he earned it but he was given something due to the relationship he had with the KING.
Are you using the authority of God he has already given you? Or are you letting what you are suppose to command….command you???
Well, you can choose to change or remain the same in your relationship to fear. The choice is yours, so what will you choose????
