In the last days there will be wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes and famine (Matthew 24). These are the signs of the times…the last days in which we are living. Fear can become a stronghold in our lives. In her book, Shattering Your Strongholds, Liberty Savard writes that fear “is erected around great apprehension and anxiety over unresolved experiences and memories.” Ask God to show you how to resolve past painful experiences. Practice praising God and meditate on Psalm 91, Isaiah 41:10, John 14:27, 2 Timothy 1:7 and Psalm 56:3-4. When you face your fears they will fall helplessly behind you. Choose to believe God’s word and drive fear out of doors.
Free From Fear
Father, in the name of Jesus, we shall not be afraid of the terror of the night, nor of the arrow [the evil plots and slanders of the wicked] that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor of the destruction and sudden death that surprises and lay waste at noonday. We establish ourselves on righteousness in conformity with God’s will and order. We shall be far from even the thought of oppression or destruction, for we shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near us. Amen.
