A Look at Fear . . . Part 3

2 Timothy 1:7 ~

“For God did  not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but (He has given us a spirit) of power and of love and of sound judgement and personal discipline (abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control)” AMP

So God has given us power, love and sound judgement.

Power ~ The ability to change the atmosphere.

Love ~ The very characteristic of God that casts out all fear.

Sound Judgement (or mind) ~ A mind that has been delivered, rescued, revived. No longer affected by absurd, illogical and unfounded thoughts, and/or ideas.

This is the arsenal of weapons we have to defeat fear in our minds, and therefore, the enemy.

Fear

 We need to get back our roar. Our fight. Go on the offensive instead of spending all our time on the defensive. It’s tiring, to say the least.

When a lion roars you can hear it 5 miles away! When they roar it’s to ~

  1. Declare their strength.
  2. Warn others that this is their territory.
  3. Declare their hunger (for us, spiritual appetite) Psalm 34:10
  4. Declare to other lions where they’re at.
  5. They roar in the morning and in the evening. Psalm 92:1-2

I think this is cool . . . “Fear knocked at the door, Faith answered . . . And lo, No-one was there!”

(The majority of the content in his post is credited to Pat and Karen Schatzline. I saw them on Foxtel on the Daystar channel on Joni Table Talk. They have a book called, “Restore the Roar.”)

Whenever I feel fear I declare ~ “Get out of my head Satan, In the Name of Jesus!”

Did You Know That . . .

He’s surely alive and in control . . .

And to quote an old Sunday school song . . .

“He’s got the whole world in His hands” . . .

And He’s not letting go!

Help us to look to You, Lord God . . .

We cry out to You ~ and ~

Pray 1

Heal us, O Lord, and we will be healed ~

Save us, and we will be saved ~

Our praises are for You alone!

Jeremiah 17:14

Jesus Red

Life ~ Protection ~ Comfort ~ Mercy ~ Grace ~ and lots of rain!

The Love of God . . .

This is from the Amplified Bible. I looked up more than in the concordance, because I thought how can I be more than a conqueror?

Greek ~ Hupernikao ~ to vanquish beyond. From Nikao ~ to subdue.

So, in other words, I don’t just conquer, I vanquish, gain a decisive victory. I subdue, which gives a picture of those I’ve conquered under my feet.

Vanquish ~ crush, quell, rout(is to totally destroy)

Subdue ~ bridle, control, silence.

So of course this is in relation to conquering the things that the enemy (the devil) tries to bring against us. We can rout him, and silence him, and get the victory over his annoying persistence to destroy our lives. We must persist in breaking his power over our lives. Using the WORD of GOD will certainly help to do that.

Praise God, Jehovah Shammah, the One who is there for us always!

Be encouraged, God is with you, just call out to Him and He will always answer you if you call from your heart. This section of Romans says it all ~
