No Fear! 24 October Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Did you know were not supposed to fear the devil? Were supposed to fear God. Were to have so much reverence and respect for Him that we immediately make any adjustment in our lives just to please Him. When He tells us to do something that looks risky from a natural point of view, we ought to be more concerned about what well miss if we dont obey Him, than of what will happen if we do. In other words, when He tells you that you are more than a conqueror, and instructs you to march in and take back some part of your life that the devil has stolen from you, you shouldnt sit around debating about whether or not you can do it. You should just start marching! Well, I just couldnt do that. After all, Ive been defeated in that area of my life for so long that I have a poor self-image. If thats what youre thinking, let me tell you something. If youll serve God, your poor self-image will begin to change, and youll start to see yourself as He sees you. We look so much better in Him! Weve got to get away from being so self-conscious, so aware of what we think we can or cant do. Thats what keeps us from entering into our promised land. Instead of simply obeying God, we start to wonder, Now what will people think of me if I do that? What if I lay hands on someone and they dont get healed? What if I start believing for prosperity and go broke? What will people think of me? How will I look? It doesnt matter how you look! What counts is that you obey God. Once you do that, your reputation will only get better. Its a funny thing, but once you lose that desire to protect your image, your image gets better. Why? Because then the image of the Lord Jesus can come forth instead of that image you had of yourself. Certainly I will be with thee. God promised that to you just as surely as He did to Moses (Exodus 3:12). So whatever God is telling you to do today…or has been telling you to do for some time now, do it! Grab hold of His promise to be with you. Thats what will cause you to live in the supernatural and do impossible things. Dont fear the devil and let that fear stop you. You are more than a conqueror! Rise up and obey God. Youll have victory for everyone to see!Jeremiah 33-34; Psalm 79In all things I am more than a conqueror through Him who loves me. Romans 8:37
