I was on my way to church on sunday my house and the church takes just ten minutes walk.
Before I reach the church I have to cross an express way, the road was very busy so I have to take a style to cross the road without wasting any time.
As I cross to the middle of the road to cross the other side of the road I meet a lady who waited for a long time but could not cross the road. As I cross she asked "fear no dey cash you? I laugh and asked her fear to cash me? She say yes for dis kind road na em you come cross like say you dey me were I stand here since still dey stand. I said to her, na me go cash fear no be fear go cash me. She hmm before she knows what happens I was in the other side of the road she asked again how you take cross? I said to her your mind is overwhelm with fear before you can cross you have to bring that fear in you into subjection else you will remain there, I cross to her again and asked her, do you believe you can cross this road? She said yes I believe, I said then put away that fear in you and cross over now, by the grace of God she took a bold step and cross over. It was like children play but its was a message.
Now I want to tell you why God should be respected, why only God should be feared, why we should not resist the Spirit,
Why God is a Miracle God and why you should be of help to someone else no matter the tribe, no matter the circumstance try and be of help to your fellow one when they need your help, though somes may not asked for your help but there is a Spirit that works in us and direct us to do what is good and run away from evil.
While I was still heading to the church I continue meditating the word "FEAR" not knowing that the minister would be preaching on FEAR. As he began the message what I encounter on my way to the church flashes on memory and I realise that I already summarize the message on the way, that's how God works, He can use any you time any how any where if only you hearken unto His commandment, follow His direction, and listen to His ministeration He can shows you the hidden things, He can use you to the extent you where not expecting, but fear is the most strong holes that have been hindering us from hearing from God and carrying out His assignment.
Many of us gives fear a chance to manipulate their mind, when fear manipulate your mind it manipulate your whole body, spirit and soul but the Bible says in Romans 8 vs 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
But many people even as they answer a "Child of God" still subject themselves to fear.
Why are you subjecting yourself to fear when you have the mandate in you to subdue it?
Why are putting your life to danger by letting fear pernitrate on you?
Now read this, For God hath not given the Spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of sound mind 2 Timothy 1:7
It is fact that people see themselves as a failure because of fear, you have this power in your hand then why wasting your time with fear? Go ahead and do it you can do it.
Why do you fear an ordinary and visible human being like you? I know this ember many people are running up and down to secure protection because of fear the Bible says we should fear not him who is able to destroy the flesh but unable to destroy the soul, we should only fear Him who is able to destroy both the flesh and the soul and that is God-Matthew 10:26-31 in this case only God is who we must fear. Many of us even fear ordinary beast some fear birds. Daniel 11:32b "those that know their God shall be strong and shall do exploit" why can't you do exploit instead of fearing?
Do you know that peter also walk on the sea? He began sinking when he was overshadowed with fear-Matt. 14:30.
In whatever you do be focus God is there with you, put fear far from you if you really want to succeed in life.
Stand up today and take your stand put away fear and possess your possession, paul and Silas put away fear before the prison gate opened to them. If you want to get out of that situation make sure you put away those fears in you.
Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Now you see the power has been given to you so why panic then? Just call that name (JESUS) and there you are.
Psalms 91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
Now that you know what you can do what are you waiting for?
May God give us the grace, power, strength and courage to avoid fear in Jesus name.
