February 27, 2020 Seeds Of Destiny Devotional :- More Therapies for Fear
TOPIC: More Therapies for Fear
SCRIPTURE: This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear of thee upon the nations that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble…. Deuteronomy 2:25
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What you hear determines what you fear.
MESSAGE: Life is said to be warfare, not funfair; a battlefield and not a playground. And if we must live a victorious life on earth, fearlessness is a non-negotiable requirement. This is because to fear is to be prone to danger, defeat and death. That shall not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
Previously, we saw some of the therapies for fear, and today, we shall be looking at more therapies for fear:
1. The Presence of God
Seeds of Destiny 27 February 2020: The Presence of God is the killer of fear (Psalm 91:1-7). To live in absolute fearlessness, ensure that you live with a feelable, palpable, tangible Presence of God. Ensure that nothing disconnects you from God’s presence; ensure that the way you feel in church, you feel like that at home. The devil that can waste you before your time has not been born.
2. The right input
Beware of what you hear; avoid fear-provoking sights and sounds (Deuteronomy 2:25). What people hear can cause them anguish and trembling, especially if it borders on negative events and news (Deuteronomy 13:11). What you hear determines what you fear.
3. Upright living
The Bible says that the righteous are as bold as a lion (Proverbs 28:1). If your heart is clear, your fear must die. Where there is nothing to hide, there is nothing to fear. These are dangerous times to compromise, live with a man you are not married to or live anyhow you want. You cannot afford a guilty conscience in a time of war; it weakens a person, and if the person dies in a state of compromise, he goes straight to hell.
Beloved, you cannot escape fear until your conscience is clear.
REMEMBER THIS: What you hear determines what you fear.
1. Refuse to give your ears to sources of news that transmit fear.
2. Live uprightly; run away from sin.
3. Spend time with God to assimilate His Nature and be surrounded by His Presence.
