“I win battles that I don’t even have to fight in. The good fight of faith is the fight I win! I win by faith because the Lord fights for me!”
We are studying how fighting the good fight of faith gives us total victory over fear. According to 2 Timothy 1:7, "...we have not been given a spirit of fear; but of power, of love and a sound mind. Quit giving place to it. The worst thing you can do is act on fear. If you see it rising up within you in any way, take authority over it. CAST DOWN that imagination that would exalt itself against the knowledge (the Word) of God. Fear is not a natural force to the human spirit. First John 4:16-18 tells us "...we are of God. God is in us and we are in him." God is Love. THERE IS NO FEAR IN LOVE. Perfect love casts out fear. Faith is natural to us. Not fear. Fear has to be received through the mind and then conceived in the heart. Jesus said the lust of other things must ENTER in before they can choke the Word (Mark 4:19). Fear must “enter in” to have any effect. Don’t let fear in today! You are the gatekeeper! As we act on the Word fear is kicked out. Fear is dominated by faith.
Application: Read 2 Timothy Chapter 1.
Affirmation: “The Lord is on my side, I will not fear!
As you pray this you are praying God’s perfect will, because you are praying the Word back to God. Do it in faith and you will see phenomenal results.
I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of our understanding being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. In Jesus Name, Amen.
