Fear - Jesus came to deliver us from it. From Jeffery Stewart

The main thing that came into the world due to the fall was fear. Adam and Eve ran and hid when the Lord came looking for them. Condemnation is a form of fear. Not trusting the Lord with our cares is a form of fear. Stealing, adultery, coveting are all forms of fear, fear that God will not provide our needs so we have to go about getting them ourselves. Idolatry is a form of fear, we fear trusting a God we cannot see so we trust a false God that we CAN see. Selfishness is a form of fear, a selfish person looks out only for himself because he fears. Lying is a form of fear because we fear the consequences of the truth. Fear is involved in every aspect of the fall. Addiction to drugs is caused by a fear of dealing with life.

"I came to set you free from fear. My people have been tormented by fear in all its forms. This is coming to an end. When I am done, all of my children will be entirely free from fear. Fear keeps My children from walking in the miraculous, fear keeps my children from walking in love. Fear keeps My Children from trusting in My Word. The person who is entirely free from fear will walk as Jesus walked and will talk as Jesus talked. I will display My Faithfulness as well as My Glory in this generation, in the days before I return. There is no fear in Heaven, and there will be NO FEAR in My People. You will see this, and rejoice."

This is a wonderful Word for today and so appropriate for me, as I was in fear about the happenings of this past week. I gave the fear to the Lord and, coupled with a good night's sleep, I woke without fear today. The Word that came to me is: "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." (2 Tim 1:7).

I actually woke with anger and resolve to fight this spiritual battle against the dark forces with more prayer and boldness. Hell itself can't win against prayer. Prayer is the KEY.
