I know you must have heard of the recent happenings in the world right now, of the deadly COVID-19 virus, but no matter what happens, choose faith over fear. It has been declared by the World Health Organisation as a Pandemic, a case which calls for urgent attention all over the world. In the wake of this call, I am writing this post to encourage your heart to choose faith over fear no matter what you might be hearing or seeing.
The bible tells us that in the last days (which we are in), there will be perilous times, but we also have an assurance that we dwell in the secret place of the most high and therefore we abide under the shadow of the Almighty (Psalm 91:1). At times like this, people will consciously and unconsciously inject fear into the atmosphere through what they say and what they do, but then…
There are certain things you must not find yourself doing during this period, which includes:
- Engaging in conversations that increase fear
- Reading negative stuff that pumps fear into your mind
Do you know that what you constantly feed into your system determines how you will respond to situations? So, therefore, it is important that you need to feed the right things into your mind. By this, I mean things that produce faith.
This is how you can do it
- Daily feed yourself with God’s word
- Get yourself prayed up. Pray more in the Spirit and stay sensitive to the Holy Spirit
- When things that make you afraid comes to your mind, speak out and have an answer to fear
As you are well aware, the plan of the devil is to constantly speak fear to you with every given opportunity. But you must always be on guard against whatever tactics he tries to use.
Be reminded that the weapon of our warfare is not carnal, it is spiritual for pulling down strongholds and anything that wants to exalt itself above the name of Jesus (2nd Corinthians 10:4). And hence, we must use the right tactic to fight to win, for ourselves and for the preservation of the world at large.
Get yourself charged up by saying this to yourself continually – I AM NO LONGER SLAVE TO FEAR, I AM A CHILD OF GOD. Please download this song- No Longer Slaves to Fear by Jonathan and Melissa Helser.
