I pray that uncommon testimonies will be our portion throughout this month, in Jesus’ name. Our prayer focus for the month is Boldness: confronting your fears.
So how can we move beyond fear?
Do have a project that you desperately want to get underway but you feel so overwhelmed that you don’t know where to start?
I think it is absolutely imperative that we have faith in ourselves and our ability to achieve what it is we really want to achieve. Because if we don’t have that, then all the divine help and spiritual guidance in the world can’t help us
Finding freedom from our OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) involves facing fears, accepting obsessions, surrendering our anxieties to God, believing in the truth, and finally, postponing ritualizing thoughts. If we courageously do all this, we can experience more and more victories from this illness – if we only habitually choose to stay connected to the Vine.
Lord, thank You that You have set Your affection on me, loved me and chosen me. Help me today to fear You, to walk in all Your ways, to love You and to serve You with all my heart and all my soul.
From now on, you must not be fearful. Fear is faith polluted. Fear is faith in the enemy. Faith is trust in God. When you fear, you are saying to God that the enemy has more power than He has.
Life is not one big happy joy ride, everyone goes through trials and experiences times of discouragement and disappointment. We must expect such times as well as better times of joy, satisfaction, and achievement. However, there is no need to fear such trials, because when they come, Jesus will be there, ready to help us deal with them.
