For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world our faith. (1 John 5:4, NASB)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Fear always presents itself much bigger than it really is. Its always the worst-case scenario. It always tries to get you worried, anxious, uptight and panicked. Fears goal is to separate you from God by trying to get you to doubt His Word. But when the spirit of fear comes, recognize that it has no power unless you give it power. Dont give it power by speaking what fear speaks. Dont give it power by meditating on it. Instead, let the power of the Word of God rise up within you. Declare what God says; declare that God has given you all authority in heaven and earth. Declare that no weapon formed against you shall prosper.
Remember, no matter how big fear presents itself, its no match for the power of Almighty God. When you yield yourself to Him, you tap into His power. Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. God is bigger than your problems and bigger than fear. Let faith rise up in your heart because faith is the victory that overcomes the world.
A Prayer for Today
