Do not give the devil an opportunity to work. (Ephesians 4:27, ISV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
So many people today are living with less than Gods best because theyve allowed fear to creep in and take root in their lives. Fear is the greatest weapon the enemy uses to try to hold us back. Fear is not from God. Scripture tells us that fear brings torment. Its designed to paralyze us and keep us from Gods blessings.
The good news is that God is greater than fear. His power in you is greater than any power that comes against you. But, in order to walk in His power, you have to close the door on the enemy. See, the enemy cant have access to your life unless you open a door and give him access. Thats why we have to be careful about what we watch, what we listen to, what we read, and what we say. When we open ourselves to fear, we give the enemy opportunity.
If youve allowed fear to steal from you in any area of life, today you can be free you can be finished with fear. Conquering the enemy starts by making the choice to close the door on fear by receiving Gods love and meditating on His promises. Receive His truth and speak His truth. Let Him set you free and lead you into victory as you close the door on fear.
A Prayer for Today
Father, I come to You in faith declaring that I am finished with fear. Thank You for giving me a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. Fill me with Your peace and joy today as I worship You and move forward in Your victory in Jesus name. Amen.
