Free from Fear

At the cross we obtained freedom from the fear of death.

“Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood,

He Himself likewise also partook of the same,
that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is the devil,
and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives”.
Hebrews 2:14-15

The victory is not to come, but is already ours!  Jesus fought the final battle and the war has been decided!  We win!!!  Satan’s punishment has not been meted out as yet, and we are still subject to his lies and oppression, but know dear brothers and sisiters of mine, that he cannot possess you and you can know victory if you walk according to the spirit and not according to the flesh. 

Fear need have no power over Christians.  If Jesus took away the very fear of death and you believe that He has, then I bet that He can handle anything else that this life can throw at us.  God was in charge when you were born without your help!  He gently led you to the cross and He cares for you still.  If He is Lord of your life, then you can trust that He Is who He says He is and that He will do what He says He will do!  Jesus is still the answer.  We need not fear the circumstances of this life because God allows them to mold us ad make us more like Him so that we will be suited for the heavenly kingdom and the work that God has there for us.

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

Fear is not of God.  Don’t let that temptation lead you to sin.  Take every thought of fear captive, lay all things at the feet of Jesus, and trust and rest and wait to see what God will do.  He does not always change our circumstances, but He promises peace in the midst.  And an eternal reward and purpose.

God is good!
