Hello to all you fellow believers. This is me going into a strong offensive position instead of weak defense for a change.
I hope this blesses you and spurs many thoughtful replies, sincere prayers, and above all what I would like to see from this post is an ALL OUT WAR BEGIN AGAINST THE SPIRIT OF FEAR.
Also, to the spirit of fear…I bind you from hindering any reader or poster here in the name of Jesus, and in the name of Jesus I loosen your stronghold on any reader or poster here. If you want to mess around here you must praise the LORD JESUS and walk in the love of God, this I command you in the name of JESUS CHRIST! (if anyone thinks they have something to add to this command and my all out mockery of fear, please feel free add your rebuke of the spirit of fear in the NAME OF JESUS.)
Ok, now let’s get started, in the name of Jesus of course. I’m not sure what to say so I’m just gonna start praying and leave it up to God.
First I want to share with you that I have been battling spirits of fear a lot lately. Fear of death, fear of cancer, fear of shame, fear of rejection, fear of fear, fear of not having enough money, fear of vehicle trouble basically fear of just about everything bad. Fear truly is torment.
I have heard it said, even read in places here on this site that fear is a gift of God. That He gave it to us for protection like a warning system. I disagree. I think that is confusing fear with God given discernment. Therefore I declare to fear to be of the devil. I stand on what the Word says in 2 Tim 1:7- “God has not given us the spirit of fear: but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” So how could fear be from God? It isn’t, and it shouldn’t be confused with the good gift of discernment.
I have decided “enough is enough”. I have declared before heaven, hell and earth to not be a servant of fear any longer. I have declared to fear nothing but God, and by the power of Jesus that is exactly what I intend to do. But I have decided that isn’t “enough”.
I recently heard a sermon regarding a different matter but a scripture stuck with me about David. He had been away and while he was gone the enemy came and took their wives sons and daughters and goods. They were greatly distressed and wept until they could not weep any more. David asked the Lord if he should pursue. the Lord told him to “Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all”. So David went. David pursued and destroyed the enemy and recovered everything without fail! I’ll say that again. David recovered everything he had lost (and more), and utterly destroyed the enemy! You can read about this in 1 Samuel 30:1-19 (I recommend reading further but this will get the point across)
In the name of Jesus, I am going to pursue the enemy and recover all that he stole from me and I am going to destroy him and his influence in my life. I am taking hold of the power given to me by God.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying I am doing this. I am just the Lord’s battle ax.
Again like David said when going up against Goliath (spirit of fear would my Goliath),
“…but I come at thee in the name if the Lord of hosts (the name of Jesus today) the God of Israel, whom thou hast defied. this day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcasses of host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air and to the wild beasts of the earth;that all the earth may know there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the BATTLE IS THE LORDS AND HE WILL GIVE YOU INTO OUR HANDS.” 1Sam17:45-47
So it isn’t so much what I have to say in this post that matters. I thought it would be good to keep a thread alive for the sake of any child of God who is struggling with fear. Prayer requests are welcome but I think it would be good to post them in the Prayer section of the forum. I will start a thread there for this purpose however don’t misunderstand me, I will pray for you as will many others here. do not hesitate to ask.
I would like to see this post be added to with scripture, wisdom, and even testimonies regarding overcoming fear.
Please join me brothers and sisters in a crusade against the spirit of fear. We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus! As for me and my house we will serve the Lord, and i want to do it actively. I’m tired of defending it’s time to PURSUE AND RECOVER ALL WITHOUT FAIL!
By the way the same person I heard the sermon about David from brought up the point that in many cases the word pursue in the Bible means “to chase after with hostile intent”!
I will be posting more scripture about fear here, but in the meantime please feel free to add to this. Please keep in mind I would like this to be a source of information in overcoming fear. Links that are appropriate are welcome to. I know there are some good articles floating around here, I will try to put up some of those links to.
God Bless you all!!! do the devil stomp!!!
P.S. the devil stomp is a dance I do when I want to show the Lord Jesus how much I love Him for loving and delivering me. I stomp once in a while….you can guess what I’m stomping. Try it when the devil is trying to get you down with fear, and recite scripture out loud. Claim your victory in the name of Jesus! Message me if there is any way I can help you or pray for you.
And here is a link to a prayer thread that is connected to this thread:
