“I am utterly convinced that Satan asked to sift me like wheat, just as he has many other servants of God, and that God gave him permission because He knew that what Satan meant for evil, He, my God, WOULD USE FOR GOOD.” Beth Moore from Praying God’s Word: Breaking Free from Spiritual Strongholds
If you had asked me 1-2 years ago if fear and worry were a part of my everyday life, I would have answered no. I had no need for 31 verses for overcoming fear. But, God had a work to do in my heart, I have no doubt, and fear has been creeping into my heart like never before. I have known all along that this was a spiritual battle along with spiritual warfare. Yet, when my worst fears would creep into my mind, I would still feel at such a loss.
If this happens, I just won’t survive…
I am learning to WALK THROUGH my fears. What do I mean by this? I mean, think about your worst fear. Now, imagine it actually happening. Now what?
Even if our worst fears come true (and we aren’t promised that they won’t!) God is STILL GOD. God is still ON HIS THRONE. God is still FAITHFUL. God is still TRUSTWORTHY.
If our fears come true, does that change who God is?
I can truthfully answer NO.
So, while I still struggle, I am learning to TRUST. And I am praying Scriptures and meditating on verses that help me to battle the enemy of my soul. How do we do battle with the liar of all time? With TRUTH. Pray these verses, speak these verses out loud. Write the verses. Memorize the verses. In moments of fear, CLAIM these verses. God is faithful!!!
Notice I used the word OVERCOME in my title. The cry of my heart is that these verses will be our BATTLE CRY against the enemy. We will PROCLAIM the truth of JESUS and when we do, we find our VICTORY in JESUS. Christ alone.
I truly believe, like Beth Moore in the quote above, that God will use this time of fear in my life FOR GOOD. He is strengthening my faith. He is helping me to depend on Him and Him alone. He is building my trust in Him more and more.
And He will do the same for you, my friend.
