Spirit of Power!

Fear not, I am with you” says the Lord throughout the Bible in diverse situations.  It shows that throughout the history of mankind, fear has been a dreadful weapon used by the devil to cease them from moving forward in God’s purpose.  In order to not allow it take root in your life, be conscious at all times that God has not given you a spirit of fear.  He has already deposited a strong spirit in you! This consciousness is the sword that gives victory.

You would have been familiar with a character in the Bible called David.  He is well known for facing his enemies fearlessly.  What happened when he faced the giant Goliath? He chose five smooth stones from the stream, put them in the pouch of his shepherd’s bag and with the sling in his hand he approached the giant. David said to that giant, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hands, and I’ll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord saves; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give all of you into our hands” ( 1 Samuel 17:45 - 47) . What a bold statement by David before conquering his victory! As he confessed, he also triumphed over the giant with just a sling and a stone and not with the sword.
How was David able to do so? By the Spirit of God which was upon him! Yes, the Spirit of God provided him love, strength and clarity in mind.  Bible assures, “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline” (2 Timothy 1:7) to conquer the foe! With the Spirit of God, David’s small pebble became a powerful weapon to defeat the giant.  Today, couple your ‘small pebble’ of talent with faith on this promise and see your enemy fall down before you.  You carry the gene of ‘fearlessness’ in you!
Dear Father in Heaven, You have given me a spirit of love, power and self-discipline.  I pray to be filled with faith to face my challenges with the strength You have given me and conquer the enemy.  I reject the spirit of fear in the name of Jesus.  I choose to armor my mind with understanding and clarity that flows from You.  By faith, I take victory over my enemy in the name of Jesus’. Amen.
