There are so many things in this world right now, that tempt us to fear.
I’m sick of seeing the enemy rob us of peace because we are distracted, discouraged, and gripped by fear.
The enemy really uses that.
But here’s one thing I’ve learned that has disarmed him time and time again in my life:
When I hear the enemy telling me all the bad things that could happen…the “what-ifs” ….
I’ve learned to say “EVEN IF”.
Even if the worst nightmare or scenario the evil one can can throw at me comes true…
Even if THAT happens…
God is still good. (Ex 34:6)
He is still faithful. (2 Thess 3:3)
He will not leave me. (Deut 31:6)
He can receive glory even through that hard thing. (Rom 8:28)
I’ve learned to let my mind temporarily go to the worst-case scenario, and say, “even if that happens” the above is still true.
This disarms the enemy.
As I do this, I have learned to enjoy my blessings I have instead of being gripped by the fear of losing them or fearing I won’t get others.
Friend, let’s not be afraid to possess the land God is giving us because of the giants we worry might be there. (Numbers 14)
Let’s remember truth. Let’s help each other walk past the lies and fear and remember our eternity is secured! God has great plans for us! Nothing can change that! (John 10:28)
One day, one glorious day, our faith will become sight. And all the hard things that happen, or we worry might happen, will be no more.
But until then, let’s walk in truth…. fear-killing, joy-bringing, peace-giving truth!
Yes… God is still good.
He is still faithful.
He will not leave us.
He can receive glory, even through hard things.
So, let’s not give into fear, but walk forward and really enjoy the blessings of this day.

One thought on “One thing that defeats FEAR!”
Thank you so much for sharing this today. I struggle with chronic pain, and the disfigurement of it. So I need to keep hearing this since I know there isn’t a cure and it’s getting worse. God Bless you for always being a light in this world.
