Conquering the Spirit of Fear

What strikes fear in your heart? Is it circumstances, people, the dark?

fear num 14 prov 29a

Numbers 14 What does Satan send your way that sends you into a tailspin? The most destructive tool he has in his arsenal is that of fear. Of what are we fearful? After hearing the report of the 12 spies the Israelites, one by one, dismissed the words that the land before them was flowing with milk and honey; even after seeing the cluster of grapes carried on a staff between two men. It was when they heard about the strong inhabitants and the fortified cities they lost all courage. Over their cries, Caleb and Joshua cried out: “If the Lord delights in us, then he will bring us into this land and give it to us.” Yet one cry led to another and then another and finally, the cries of fear rose above Caleb and Joshua’s testimony.

Satan used the words: the land devours its inhabitants, the people are of great stature, and we seemed like grasshoppers both to ourselves and to them. Solomon was right; The fear of people becomes a snare,…[Prov 29:25] and Satan uses that fear to trap us.

Where does Satan have you in his grip of fear? Remember this truth: If God is for us, who can be against us?[Rom 8:31 ] and this: “whoever trusts in the Lord shall be exalted” [Prov 29:25]

May it be said you as God said of Caleb:

“he has a different spirit and has followed me fully,”
