Breaking The Cycle of Fear: Fear Will Sabotage Your Destiny
1. “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
If you allow fear to remain active in your life, it will take hold of your thoughts, paralyze your forward momentum and suffocate your God-Given Destiny. Through Christ, God has given us Power to overcome every obstacle the enemy attempts to set in our way. No matter the circumstance, God has given us Power to break the spirit of fear from off of our lives and the Strength to fight against and be victorious over the tactics of the enemy in every area of our lives. God has given you Power. Face and conquer fear with God’s Word.
2. “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” Galatians 5:1
When you are in Christ, it is your choice to surrender to the bondage and stronghold of fear. When you are in Christ, you are given the Keys and Authority to overcome the enemy in every area of your life. When you are in Christ, He has set you free. The key is if you are in Christ. It’s your choice to walk in the freedom of Christ or live in the bondage and entanglement of the past. Be released from the yoke of bondage and be free in Christ completely. Remember not the former things push and press toward the things that God has in store for you. You have a great Destiny in store for you. Don’t allow fear to sabotage and steal your Destiny.
3. “And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.” Isaiah 10:27
Fear will wrap itself around your Destiny, choking the very life out of your dreams and your plans for the future. But those who are in Christ, have Full Access to Christ [The Anointed One]. Christ, The Anointing will break you free from under the weight and bondage of the past. If you trust God, He will keep you protected under His Covering as you surrender to Him. The Anointing of Christ will destroy every yoke and burden that’s weighing you down. Step forward in faith, trusting and knowing that God will cover and heal you, destroying the pain of the past.
4. “And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles.” Mark 2:22
Fear will cause you to implement new ideas in an old way. God wants you to implement, the new ideas that He has given you, His Way. You cannot put new wine, (new ideas, new businesses, new revelation) into old bottles – an old framework. Allow God to reshape your mind and renew your vessel to execute His Ideas, His Way.
Sometimes fear can cause us to be complacent, in fear of not excelling or thriving. Fear will plateau your potential. Pray and sit before God so that He can give you a new perspective on what to execute His Way.
5. “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” Matthew 6:24
You cannot serve two masters. In this text, Jesus teaches on serving God or idolizing money (mammon – the exaltation of riches to a God-like status). There is nothing wrong with money. Money is a tool – it is not God. But when you choose to idolize money and exalt it in your heart to a “god-like” status then you’re choosing to worship money over surrendering to The True and Living God.
An overwhelming fear of lack or the fear of being in poverty will torment you, if you allow these thoughts to rule over your “thought life”. When fear rules your thought life, your actions begin to follow after your fears. Your fears begin to shape your actions and you begin to solely trust in your own “power and ability”, to obtain wealth, rather than trusting in God. When you solely trust in your ability to produce rather than believing what God said He’ll provide your fear begins to deceive you and causes you to become self reliant on your power rather than trusting God’s Hand to flow through you. We are to be diligent and good stewards over the supply that God gives us. We are to work as unto the Lord, “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;” Colossians 3:23 . We are to submit to The One who Supplies all your need and not serve fear as master of our hearts. Trust God and know that He’ll take care of you. “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
6. “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” James 1:8
Fear will threaten your stability. When faith and fear are at war, fear competes for a space that only God can fill. When you choose to allow fear to occupy in a dry and void place (a place that’s not flourishing and fed by God’s Word), fear becomes your god and drowns out every other voice… even God’s. Fear will speak louder than The Word of God, if you allow it to rule and have dominion in your heart. When you fill your void places with God’s Word, He will saturate your heart with His Peace and give you Power to replenish your faith tank again.
A double minded man is one who clings to two opinions – faith and fear and will be unstable in every path that he chooses. You cannot walk in faith while clinging to fear. Trust God and give Him your all.
