Do you know that Satan can do nothing to us unless we give him access. We give Satan access to us through our fears and if we don't overcome our fears they can rearrange and change things in our lives, just like faith can. Satan is always looking to inflict fear in us. We have to make the decision to not tolerate fear.
There are different froms of fear such as phobias, worry, doubt, insecurity, etc. The way we overcome them is by keeping our thinking in line with God's Word. When fear knocks let faith answer. God has given us the spirit of power, love, and a sound mind and where there is love, fear cannot freely operate.
No weapon formed against you shall prosper,And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the LORD. (Isaiah 54:17, NKJV)
If you are righteous (acting in an upright, moral way; Dictionary.com) and have no fear then you have authority to speak against foul words spoken on your life (weapons) and condemn them. Learn God's Word, trust it and believe it.
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ (Isaiah 41:10, NKJV)
If you have faith in His Words then this scripture should give you confidence in your trials that you will prevail because God is telling you He will harden you so that the trials will not stop you. They will not pierce you because God has put His Armour on you.
No foul words against you, no bad relationship, being alone, disease, bills, life here on Earth; none of it will scare you because you KNOW God is on your side. He's cloaked you in His Armour.
And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:16, NKJV)
This is the key to overcoming if evil creeps it's way in.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. (1 John 4:18, NKJV)
If fear exist then love is in question. According to this verse there is no feat in His love. If you truly love Him then you know no fear because you KNOW He is with you because you KNOW He loves you. When you know He loves you then you will believe His Word. There lies your power to prevail over any weapons that may be formed against you and you will FEAR NOT!!!
