As we get ready to go through the month of August, I believe that God wants for everyone reading this blog to recognize that there is no need to fear anything. Just as my friend reassured me, I am here to reassure you, God’s got you covered. Whenever you are afraid, or feel fearful, put your trust in God (Psalm 56:3 NIV).
As you progress throughout the month, know that the Holy Spirit dwells within you and will always help you overcome any fear you may encounter along the way. Don't flinch at fear, but instead, walk with radiant confidence right past your fears knowing that because you are a child of the most high King, fear is simply a tactic by satin meant to try and intimidate you so you don't succeed or may easily become distracted. Through the Holy Spirit, God grants us the power to live a bold and courageous life fearing nothing but God himself, remember that fear is a liar. If you ever forget this and find yourself letting thoughts of fear invade your mind, remember that one of the best ways to face fear is through prayer (Philippians 4:6 NIV). Prayer will allow you to reconnect with God so that you may be reminded of the divine protection that has already been placed over your life and ask for whatever it is you may need to overcome fear.
Have you ever heard of the saying "new level, new devil"? It means that every time God elevates you, the devil will try to attack you in a new way. No matter what angle of fear the devil tries to attack you from this month, do not be fooled, the power to prevail over fear has already been instilled within you.
I come to you today with a desire on my heart to let you know that I love you and I need you. It is a privilege to be able to slip into your presence giving you glory, honor and praise for being the holy God that you are. Thank you for being my redeemer, my healer, my intercessor and my protector. I pray that you cleanse and deliver me from any means of fear right now in the name of Jesus (Psalm 34:4 NIV). I pray for the ability to operate through the month of August with a fearless attitude knowing that through your Holy Spirit that dwells within you will never leave my side and that I have automatically been equipped with dynamic power to overcome all fear (Deuteronomy 31:6 NIV & Isaiah 41:10 NIV). Pull me in closer and continue to mold me into the person you want me to be God. As I advance higher, I pray that the spirit of fear flees from my presence knowing that I have divine protection in you. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
