Conquering Fear

Fear, if unchecked and eliminated, can stop you in your tracks. It can overwhelm you so that you don’t think you can do anything. Fear is the enemy’s tactic to keep you unable to enjoy the benefits of your new covenant rights as a child of God. Fear puts the attention and emphasis on “what if” scenarios, and when you let your mind follow those thoughts, you’ll end up with not only a headache but more fear. You haven’t been given a spirit of fear child of God, but of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).

How do you counter attacks of fear? You can’t just out think fearful thoughts because sooner or later you’ll be right back thinking fearful thoughts. It’s when you declare what God’s Word says that you’ll be able to overcome. It’s pulling those thoughts down (2 Corinthians 10:5), if they don’t line up with the finished work of Jesus for you, you cast them out—don’t think about them but think on God’s promises—He will keep you in perfect peace when your mind (thoughts) stay focused on Him because you trust Him (Isaiah 23:3, ESV).
