Conquering Fear And Anxiety
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God (Philippians 4:6).
The Word of God tells us to be anxious for nothing; that means to have no anxiety about anything. Rather, in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving you should make your requests known to God. The result of this is that the peace of God which surpasses all understanding shall garrison your heart and mind in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7).
The Bible is replete with the admonition for us not to fear. God knows you could live without anxiety, panic and fear, that’s why He said to banish fear and anxiety. Be stable in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving as you express your faith in his Word God.
Fear is actually faith in the ability of the adversary to hurt you; fear is faith in the ability of all that is negative to stand against you and defeat you! To conquer it you have to have faith in the positives: faith in God’s Word, faith in His love for you, faith in His grace, power and ability to put you over in life!
The knowledge of God’s Word is the beginning of your deliverance from fear and anxiety. You can’t have faith in God’s Word if you don’t know the Word. Your faith grows with the knowledge of the Word. As faith is stirred in your spirit, fear is dispelled. Jesus said in John 8:32: “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” God’s Word is the truth that delivers you from fear.
It doesn’t matter in which area fear tries to attack you, refuse to fret! Find out the truth from God’s Word concerning the situation and stay your mind on that truth, refusing to be moved by any contrary or negative information.
I thank you for your Word in my spirit today stirs faith and dispels fear and anxiety in Jesus’ Name. I reject every thought of worry and anxiety for I know that my faith in your Word and in your mighty power, love and grace towards me is my victory over the devil and the powers of darkness.
