Living Without Fear
Living without fear is a sign of destruction to the adversary.
The Kingdom of God is advancing. God empowers us to do what He calls us to do, but when the adversary attacks, what do we do?
Paul is very clear in Philippians 1:28, that having NO FEAR is a sign of destruction for the adversary, and a sign of salvation for us. The Passion Translation says:
“And then you will never be shaken or intimidated by the opposition that rises up against us, for your courage will only prove as a sure sign from God of their coming destruction and that you have found a new life.”
In 1 John 4:18 it says: “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear.” The moment we experience His love in a tangible way, the fear that was there is expelled and will be a sign of destruction for the adversary. In Greek, the word for the love of God is “agapao” (biblestudytools), and it is the same love that He showed us when He decided to send His son to die for us. (see John 3:16)
Receiving, experiencing, and putting God’s love into practice in our lives is the fruit of having an encounter and intimacy with Him. It comes from us knowing Him, letting contrary desires die in us, and rejecting lies. That is, NOT letting ourselves be paralyzed by fear, but continuing to move forward; renewing our minds (see Romans 12). The Holy Spirit empowers us to continue advancing with boldness.
God is love, and our connection with this love makes all of this happen. Satan has already been defeated and has NO authority. WE are the ones who have the authority.
So, what is it that represents fear for you at this time?
It is time to give that fear to God, but above all to seek Him intentionally, because an encounter with Him is what will lead us to experience the perfect love that casts out all fear.
After having an encounter with the Holy Spirit through a dream in April 2016, Dayanna experienced the heart of the Father, leading her to walk in the revelation of sonship in radical way. Because of this, she started a project called “Royalty – You have a Purpose & Destiny” in stewardship of this truth. Dayis Jiménez
