Withstand him; be firm in faith [against his onset rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined]... (1 Peter 5:9, AMP)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
The very moment you first feel fear, you have to resist it. In other words, you have to act against it. If you make the mistake of dwelling on your fears and start thinking about all the reasons why you cant do what God is telling you to do, then it wont be long before you develop a negative mindset that will keep you stuck where you are.
In the Bible, when God told David to go fight Goliath, it says that David moved quickly toward the battlefield. In other words, he didnt think about it. He didnt allow fear to grip his heart and talk him out of it. He just did what God wanted him to do.
So many people today are just sitting on the sidelines of life. They have tremendous potential on the inside, but they keep letting the enemy talk them out of doing what God wants them to do. Every time they get a vision of victory for their life, the enemy brings fear; and they just swallow his lies hook, line and sinker. Dont let that be you! Instead, obey quickly. Resist fear and boldly embrace every blessing the Lord has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father, today I choose to resist fear. I choose Your Word. I choose Your love. I believe that with You, all things are possible. I choose to obey quickly and boldly embrace the victory and blessing You have for me in Jesus name. Amen.
