Rhapsody Of Realities Daily Devotional May 13 2023 Topic: NEVER RULED BY FEAR
SCRIPTURE: There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love (1 John 4:18).
There’re certain negative forces that affect people’s actions, choices and decisions; one of them is fear. Fear is a tormenting spirit. There’re different kinds of fear: The fear of failure, the fear of the future, the fear of man, the fear of death, the fear of darkness, and so on.
Oftentimes, those who are driven by fear can’t even define what they’re afraid of. Yet, they perpetually live in fear. But we’re never to be moved by fear, because we’re born of God and live by faith. In your life, make up your mind that you’ll never be ruled by fear.
Never allow fear to prompt you to take an action or stop you from taking one. The Bible says fear entraps, but if you trust in the Lord, you’re safe (Proverbs 29:25).
There are people who are bound by the fear of insecurity. Even some leaders experience these fears in their leadership roles. But the Bible says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). That means if you’re born again and filled with the Holy Spirit, fear has no place in your life. You should never be ensnared by fear. You have the Spirit of power, of love, and of a sound mind. Blessed be God!
It makes no difference the darkness in the world and how dismal the state of the world economy gets; refuse to be agitated. Trust the Lord; He leads us in perpetual triumph. God has ordained your victory, promotion, and prosperity in the midst of darkness. He already planned that you’ll be a success in this life, irrespective of what’s going on in the world around you. So, live confidently every day, knowing that your faith is the victory that overcomes the world. “For whatever is born of God is victorious over the world; and this is the victory that conquers the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4 AMPC).
