There is fear all around us! Troubles and tragedies and turbulence pervade the news media, as such, the level of fear we are presently experiencing in the world is unprecedented.
Fear comes to every one of us irrespective of race, gender, or social status. We live in the days of fears where the strong unexpectedly become anxious and alarmed.
Fear is ubiquitous as it is multidimensional. Fear is evil both in its content and operation. It is a major tool in the hand of the enemy which he uses to achieve his aims – to steal, kill, and destroy.
The mother of all fears is death. Every other fear takes its toll from the fear of death.
The purpose of lack, loss, poverty, wretchedness, miseries, sicknesses, diseases, and hardships is that it ends in death.
Yet there is a Person – Jesus Christ – who lived without fear. The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave guarantees your survival from all your troubles.
The reason Jesus was born is so that He could deliver people who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage (Hebrews 2:15).
Fear is simply faith in what you do not want, and it is on the basis of that fear that you attract what you don’t want.
Fear reduces you so as to reveal your humanity. Fear is incipient death, and it is a weapon in the hand of the devil.
2 Corinthians 4:4 makes us understand that the devil is the god of this world, and he uses fear as a tool to help him carry out his evil agenda.
Why do people fear?
- There is a spirit of fear. 2 Tim 1:7
- Wicked acts of sin. Prov 28:1
- Adam’s lease is running out. Rom 5:14
In spite of the situation that may come to you, do not fear. It is only in Jesus Christ that you will find victory and deliverance from the scourge of fear.
Sometimes, your needs and expectations can be so overwhelming but Jesus Christ has available resources that would make them come under.
In order to live above fears, you would have to hold on to the victory of Jesus Christ.
What Jesus Christ represents1. He is Omnipotent. Matt 28:182. He is Omniscient Hebrews 4:133. He is Omnipresent. Psalm 46:1
Though many fears fill the world, your heart does not have to be filled with fears.
There are many needs and there would always be needs, but when you are in fellowship with Jesus Christ, He will take care of you.
You can enjoy much much more even now!
No combination of calamities can sink you as long as you are with Christ.
Fear not, be assured that Jesus Christ will provide, protect, and guide you through the Year 2021 and beyond.
