“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God…”- Philippians 4:6 (NKJV)

One of the worst things that can happen to any man is to live in fear. The reason is that fear is a spirit whose job is to incapacitate you and make you live below your potential. When it creeps into the life of a man, he can never succeed because with fear no man can excel. When God was briefing Joshua on his new assignment of taking the Israelites to the promised land, one of the things He said to him was “…be strong and be very courageous” (Joshua 1:7 NIV) This statement was made twice; and the reason God had to repeat the statement was that God knew that the only thing that could make Joshua fail the task ahead of him was fear, so God had to encourage him, again and again, to be strong and very courageous. In your life, you need to learn this truth, don’t be tempted to walk in fear. 

Don’t be afraid to face your fears, it doesn’t matter how fearful it may look or sound, always remember that you have been given a spirit of love, of power, and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7). The spirit of love and sound mind is a spirit of dominion. God has called you to live a life of dominion not to be dominated. Therefore, make a conscious decision to look at the adversary in the face and face it. It might look big but don’t let sizes, make you cower rather let it encourage you to defeat it. Praise God!


When you choose to face your fears, you have chosen the path of victory and dominion!


Father, I am grateful for this timely message. I chose this day to confront anything that is putting fear in my heart and as I do, I conquer, subdue and overtake in the name of Jesus. Amen!
