Don't Let Fear Stop you
Updated: Mar 23
With so much going on in this world today, I have found that so many of us including a very large portion of Christians are experiencing some form of fear and anxiety privately and to some degree publicly whether they want to admit it or not. However, I'm reminded of Isaiah 41:10,(ISV) which says, Don't be afraid, because I'm with you; don't be anxious, because I am your God. I keep on strengthening you; I'm truly helping you. I'm surely upholding you with my victorious right hand."
Manifestations of the Spirit of Fear is onset because of worry, anxiety or stress operating in your life. Worry, anxiety and stress are all a form of a spirit of fear.
Fear an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger. An instance of this emotion, a state marked by this emotion, anxious concern. Reason for this alarm is: DANGER. (Reference: merriam-webster.com)
When the alarm of fear which is a natural human emotion is sounded the enemy quickly plays on that emotion. He wants us to respond with emotions of fear, doubt, and unbelief rather than having faith-filled courage, assurance and belief,working in our life and resounding from our spirit. He understands that there is life, wisdom, and understanding in the spirit and that we should actually have Godly fear and reverence for the Lord, as stated in Job 28:28 (NIV) He has commanded mankind: 'To fear the Lord—that is wisdom; to move away from evil—that is understanding.'" So his job is to get us off focus which pushes us away from life or the truth of God's word, while he thrives or feed off our responses and negative actions when we feel we are in danger or when we maybe in danger. He the (devil) is moved and laughs at how we respond to danger when in fear.
Fear is also an emotion, so the enemy's main mission is to catch us off guard and turn our attention towards his emotional fleshly works and away from the powerful eternal spirit filled works of our Lord and savior of Jesus Christ. His goal is to make mankind withdraw and forget the healing liberating word of God, which says, for God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7.
Anxiety means apprehensive uneasiness or nervousness usually over an impending or anticipated ill : a state of being anxious. medical : an abnormal and overwhelming sense of apprehension and fear often marked by physical signs (such as tension, sweating, and increased pulse rate), by doubt concerning the reality and nature of the threat, and by self-doubt about one's capacity to cope with it. Mentally distressing concern or interest.
A strong desire sometimes mixed with doubt, fear, or uneasiness.
When anxiety is brought on because of fear an attack occurs, which called an anxiety attack: this usually involves a fear of some specific occurrence or problem that could happen. Symptoms include: worry, tension, restlessness, and possibly physical symptoms, such as sweating and changes in heart rate. Anxiety is different from a panic attack, but it can occur as part of an anxiety or panic disorder. The enemy wants us to worry, why because if we worry long or often enough, we will began to struggle to feel or experience concern which will eventually cloud our judgement, cause confusion, and block our ability to make sound decisions, as well as lose our desire to function in day to day activities.
Worry comes from an old Anglo-Saxon word meaning "to choke" or "to strangle. Worry creates a false sense of urgency which can cause anxiety. Dialectal British : STRANGLE, CHOKE to move, proceed, or progress by unceasing or difficult effort : STRUGGLE to feel or experience concern or anxiety. (Reference: merriam-webster.com)
Negatively the spirit of fear, worry, & anxiety comes to destroy, these demonic spirits are very real and work as scare tactics, sent by the the devil in operation by demonic forces. When the spirit of fear is manifested because of worry or you are over taken by fear, stress, personal struggles and uncontrollable events, these demonic forces, can produce a spirit of anxiety which causes panic or anxiety attacks working in and against the bodies healthy normal functions to choke or strangle the life out of you by creating a false reality that your breath is being taken away, while at the same time, the enemy is thrilled to hear the words spoken out of fear from anxiety into the atmosphere "I can't Breathe'. This spirit primary mission is to control as well as steal, kill, and destroy! However we must remember to stand firm and boldly on the word of God! And remember what Jesus said, I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10 and BREATHE!
I heard the Lord say...I'm Sounding My Alarm..Don’t Panic!..Fear Not! Relax... Slowly & Calmly Breathe In & Breathe Out....Take in my Breath! Get yourself together!..Enter into My Rest...You will Live! You will ARISE! I need you to focus so that you will not overlook and are able to understand what I have begun releasing upon the earth... Behold, I’m making all things NEW!..New ideas, new creations, new strategies, new resources, new relationships, new friendships, new mindsets, New Prophetic Voices will EMERGE, New leadership, New Sound of Worship will proceed out of your mouth, Yes, an authentic integral sound will be released to those that preach my Gospel as well as New PURPOSE down on the inside of you that must be fulfilled through you! Take heart...This is my command! Prophets it's your time! You will EMERGE! I'm sending a fresh wind Now BREATHE and take a NEW BREATH MY RUACH (BREATH OF GOD) Says the Spirit of the Lord!
