When I think of the word fearless so many stories of heroic women from the Bible flash before my eyes. Ester was an orphan who rose above her circumstances and saved an entire nation. Tirzah, the youngest woman, stood firm and broke the barrier to received her inheritance while changing the culture. Ruth didn’t let fear of the unknown or the pain of her past keep her stuck from moving forward towards a better future. Hannah didn’t let fear of an “unanswered” prayer dictate her heart posture towards God and she didn't let bitterness or a wrong mindset change her attitude. They turned towards the Lord. None of these women could have overcame some of their life’s greatest hurdles without God on their side. They are just like you and me. They made the right choice and stepped into their destiny unwilling to let fear overtake them.
Can you take a moment and close your eyes, think about your past, present, and future? Can you think of one time you felt fearful of your enemy, the unknown, the outcome or simply fear of lack? Fear keeps you in bondage. Fear is meant to keep you locked in that past hurt or old label. Fear keeps us in place and keeps us from the destiny that God has for our life. We all have a choice either to press through fear or succumb to it. Thankfully Jesus came and changed all of that for us! In Christ Jesus, we really can do anything and overcome ALL obstacles.
The opposite of fear is COURAGE. Courage is stepping forward and doing exactly the thing that makes you feel fearful. Joshua 1:6 says “ Be STRONG and CONFIDENT and COURAGEOUS, for you will give this people as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers (ancestors) to give them.” The next time you face a person or circumstance instead of running from it, face your fears. Know you are never alone. When we keep our focus on Jesus, we gain the higher perspective. It takes us to a place that makes us untouchable.
Bible Verses to meditate on and grab onto:
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].”
Isaiah 41:10: “ Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do NOT be afraid, for I am YOUR GOD. I will STRENGTHEN you, be ASSURED I will help you; I will CERTAINLY take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation]”
Psalms 118:6: “ The Lord is on my side, I will NOT fear. What can a [mere] man do to me?”
Prayer: Jesus thank you for the Cross. I can live life bold, fearless, and FULL of courage because You are FOR me! Jesus may all I do bring You the glory! Holy Spirit remind me quickly when the enemy speaks lies against this truth. Lord I want to become the fearless Warrier you have created me to be! Fear has NO hold on me in Jesus mightey name amen.
