Our God is powerful and mighty. He is the God of Angel Armies and is always by our side when we need Him. Therefore, why do we fear? He has everything under control. He is not worried about the battle ahead so we shouldn’t be worried either.
Fear can rob many Christians of the compulsion to move forward and accomplish that which God has ordained for them to do. Fear can paralyze even the strongest believer. The enemy knows our weak spots and aims his fiery darts right at them. Putting on the spiritual armor of Christ will protect you from such attacks.
Fear need not be an obstacle in our life, if we remember God is at the head of the angel armies doing battle on our behalf.
We need not remain in the Family of Fearings crippled by doubt and terror. We need not cower at the feet of these retched relatives. Rather, we must learn to resist or ignore their threats….. but how?
The Word of God is our instruction manual. We need to read it and seek out the promises of God. It is our responsibility to ACTIVELY pursue a right heart and walk with Christ. God does not like a lazy child! He has given us all we need to make it on this planet and His grace is sufficient when our trails seem too much for us.
God hears the petitions of His beloved children. He strikes fear in the hearts of our foes. He goes before us and stands behind us. He will hedge us in and protect us when we cry out to Him. Be strong and very courageous, you soldier of God.
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them.
2 Timothy 2:4
No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs--he wants to please his commanding officer.
