Fear is defined in Webster’s dictionary as, “an unpleasant, sometimes strong emotion caused by an anticipation or awareness of danger” or ” anxious concern”. Fear is the great paralyser. It will keep you from making positive changes in your life.  Fear often makes you give up just one step short of your goal.  Fear is more than a mental state. If effects both the physiology of the body and the chemical balance of the brain as well. When people are afraid it generates stress. Extreme stress can manifest itself physically in a number of ways, but you don’t have to allow fear to rule in your lives.  God will give you victory over fear.  If you need help in this area, repeat this confession:

“Father, in Jesus’ Name, I confess and believe that no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and any tongue that rises against me in judgment I shall show to be in the wrong.  I believe I dwell in the secret place of the Most High.  I shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty God whose power no foe can withstand —this secret place hides me from the strife of tongues.

I believe the wisdom of God’s Word dwells in me, and because it does, I realize that I am without fear or dread of evil.  In all my way ways I know and acknowledge God and His Word: thus, He directs and makes straight and plain my pathway.  As I attend to God’s Word, it is health to my nerves and sinews, and marrow and moistening to my bones.

I am strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in my innerself by the Holy Spirit Himself Who dwells in me.  God is my strength and my refuge, and I confidently trust in Him and in His Word.  I am empowered through my union with Almighty God.  This gives me the superhuman, supernatural strength to walk in divine health and to live in abundance.

I take comfort and I am encouraged and confidently and boldly say, ‘The Lord is my Helper.  I will not be seized with alarm.  I will not fear or be terrified, for what can man do to me?’

This Word of God that I have spoken is alive and full of power.  Is is active and operative.  It energizes me, and it affects me.  As I speak God’s Word, it is sharper than any two-edged sword.  It is healing to my flesh.  It is prosperity for me.  Glory to God for casting all negative fear out of my life!”
