The devil rules his kingdom by fear.
If you are making decisions based on fear, you are letting him run your life.
Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has come and has redeemed his people…to rescue us from the hand of our enemies, and to enable us to serve him without fear… -Luke 1:68-74
For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. -Romans 8:15
How do you make your choices? Are you afraid of what people will think of you? Do you hold back from giving because you’re afraid you’ll run out of money? Does fear of being hurt hinder your relationships? Are you afraid you’ll fail, so you just don’t try?
Jesus came to set us free from the kingdom of fear. We need to see fear as an enemy, rebuke it, then run into prayer for the courage and faith we need.
“Fear is really faith in anything other than God.” -John Dawson
