TO US, HE GAVE THE SPIRIT OF BOLDNESS AND NOT OF FEAR
Many of us have had dreams, ideas, great business plans, beautiful and magnificent visions which we are deeply sure that it is from God but fear has deprived us of actualizing that dreams.
2 TIMOTHY 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control].
Fear, has kept us in bondage that we can't move forward either, have we been able to move from the place we've been for years because of fear and this has kept us from fulfilling the divine mandate we were all sent to accomplish on the earth.
Many of us are afraid of the future because we are still afraid of our past, we've forgotten that scripture says, That anyone in Christ Jesus is a new creature, behold old things are passed away and behold all things have become new.
That scripture knew that most of us fear will deprive us of moving forward and away that was why it said all things, everything in us has and will become new why then do we still fear for what will become when we've not even taken a step?
Gideon who said he was the least among his kindred was given a command "go in thy might", and we all, no matter where we are coming from and our color have been mandated to "go in thy might", do not fear but go in thy might because we were never given the spirit of fear.
We've become slaves to fear that we no longer remember where we are coming from and where we are heading to. Joseph no matters the challenges he faced, no matter how it seemed as though those dreams he had that made his brothers sell him out for slavery will never materialize, he never was afraid, he was still bold enough to stand the test of time. He was filled with the spirit of boldness to say no and flee from the sexual advances of his master's wife because He knew who he was, where he was coming from, and where he was going to even though the dreams looked impossible.
We are heirs of the kingdom and as heirs of the kingdom, nothing is supposed to put us in bondage because we were given power and authority to dominate and as those who have the power to dominate, we are not supposed to be afraid or carry fear about anything but we are supposed to walk boldly and courageously knowing that nothing can happen to us without our Father's knowledge about it.
So let us do away with the spirit of fear because we are in Christ Jesus and because the spirit of fear is one of the devices the devil sends to all children of God who have come to the knowledge of the truth (Christ Jesus) to hinder us from fulfilling the destiny that God has on our life.
