“As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, be not afraid, only believe.” Mark 5:36 KJV
What the devil works with is fear; that is why the Bible is full of ‘fear not’. If there was nothing to fear, God won’t tell you not to fear because once fear arises, faith goes out of the door. Fear is the weapon the devil uses, that is what he introduced in the garden. God called Adam and said to him ‘where are you?’ Adam’s reply is ‘I was afraid’. Child of God, I come to tell you not to give room to fear.
Fear not when the situation seems to persist or when it seems to be getting worse. Fear not when your meal barrel seems to be running dry. Fear not when your creditors come. Fear not when it looks as if the job or the business is not coming. Fear not when it seems as if you are ageing and husband is not coming. When you are going into an examination or when you are going to submit your LPO, don’t be afraid. The Bible says that the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. The people you are going to meet are under God. Have you not heard that the heart of the king is in His hands and He will direct him to wherever He wants just like a river?
Let me tell you a secret you don’t know; you are in the company of those who have the greatest advantage, the exclusive few that God has gathered together. Opportunities abound around you. So, fear not!
Another reason why you should fear not is that you have the Word of God in you. Stand on the Word and keep standing until your testimony manifests. Don’t give up too easily. Keep on standing on the Word. The problem with us is that we approach God as if He is a man. He is not a man! He is God! He will come through for you.
