FEAR… God Heals and Delivers ( 2 Timothy 1:7)

FEAR has been my topic the last few days. The last 2 postings were FEAR… A “Thriller” to Some or a New Reality Show for Abuse Victims and FEAR… PTSD and Triggers (2 Tim. 1:7). Now, I want to continue with the third part about FEAR.

The Bible says in 2 Timothy 1:7, ““God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.” I lived with fear and even PTSD from the abuse. This verse was repeatedly given to me as a new Christian but I did not understand. I did not realize at that time that the fear that I lived with is from Satan. In my mind, it was totally my ex. However, Satan loves to use anyone that he can and will keep many people in bondage to their past with fear.

Now, many Christians told me to let go of the fear. That made no sense to me and I thought that they were CRAZY!!! How can you let go of a fear so strong that it absolutely consumes you? How can you get over the pain and suffering that contributed to the fear? It took me a long time to realize how to let go of the fear. To let go of the fear, you have to hold onto God. God heals and delivers, but we can’t hold onto the past and the fear and pain that goes with it. Now,  WE CAN DO NOTHING ON OUR OWN… BUT WE CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS US!!

The Bible tells us:
“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ (Isaiah 41:10 NKJV)

I did not believe that there was no fear in God’s presence until I experienced it. I will share with you one of my favorite worship songs called “IN YOUR PRESENCE.” I have found this Presence, and I can tell you that in that Place of HIS PRESENCE, ALL FEAR IS GONE!!   I have felt that Peace that is indescribable, like another realm not of this earth… I  pray that many more of you will find this place of total peace where no fear exists.

  1. Fear tolerated is faith contaminated. Fear paralyses faith and trust in God. This is where the devil wants Christians to be in. Because in this rut is where the church is ineffective and powerless in the commission of Jesus Christ (Mark 16:15-18 & John 14:12-15) Throughout the entire Word of God, from Genesis-Revelation (beginning & end) mentions “fear not” 365 times. This is Almighty God’s literal daily reminder. But the Fear of The Lord is to be afraid to sin against God, because sin separates us from God, severs our communion with Him (Romans 8; James 1:14-15) Fear not is the commandment against the flesh. Fear The Lord is the commandment of the Spirit. Where there is fear tolerated is the evidence of the lack having a real true intimate relationship of knowing God and being grounded in the Word of His promises.

    When I received this revelation I sought The Lord and dove into His Word like never before in order to know Him. And I now refuse to live in fear. I learned to walk in the Spirit of God, through the blood of The Lord Jesus Christ. And this we have to learn. “Teach me O Lord all your ways.” When you feed your faith, doubts and fears have to starve and die, let them die. Where does faith come from. By hearing the Word of God daily, constantly (Romans 10:17) This post is a great reminder. God bless you sister.

    • This is awesome!! Thank you so much Brother Steve. God has had me on a path for 2 years now of what I call “stair-steps of faith” after losing my job and having to totally trust the Lord, not living in fear. I feel like He has had me on a training ground with no income but just walking in obedience to what He tells me to do and waiting on Him to provide for me and my children. Walking in the Spirit is where He wants all of us. Thanks again for this beautiful word. Many blessings to you my friend!!

  2. Part of me still lives in fear of failure because you are told many things about yourself that you come to believe. I had many fears over the years but now with God in my life I am putting my prayers and faith in God I am moving on with my life.

    • Amen!! I am the same way and have to keep reminding myself at times to hold onto God and walk in faith with Him. We need to remember that nothing is impossible with Him. He is healing us and teaching us as we go. God bless you, bjs!
