One of the greatest enemy of humanity from generation to generation is FEAR. This enemy has crippled many destinies. This enemy has reordered the life of men and women who ought to be great achievers in life. FEAR is not just an enemy if man, but the greatest enemy man has. I have written couple of articles on Fear, but Holy Spirit told me His not yet through with me on this theme called Fear. He instructed me to pick up my pen and write and so I obeyed. I begin to write.
The man God made was not made to be fearful except to have the fear of the Lord. Adam has never entertained fear or has any reason to display fear. But for the first in the History of mankind Adam said ” I heard your voice in the garden and I was AFRAID because was naked, so I hid myself.” Genesis 3:10 The seed of fear have been sown into Adam as a result of his fall, immediately he got separated from God, there was no more boldness, confidence, faith all that he had when he stood with all the wild animals Lion, Cheetar, Tiger, Bear etc and gave all of them names. That same confidence, faith, boldness in God had been stolen away by the Devil. Don’t forget that, that his job description is to steal, kill and destroy according to John 10:10. So he steals away the faith and replace it with Fear.
Look at the last sentence of Gen 3: 10 ” so I hid myself” that’s what fear does. Fear will hid you from greatness. Fear will barricades you from moving forward in life. FEAR has killed potentials inside many people. Many dreams have been slaughtered by the knife of fear. The poison of fear has killed and crippled many great destinies on earth. Fear: the enemy of man.
If Adam was still connected to his maker, the seed of fear will not be sown in him. Because in the arms of God there is nothing to be afraid of. CCC popular hymn 537 sings FEAR not in arms of the Lord Jesus, nothing exists to be feared. The fire that burns cannot come near thee, devil’s uprisings are subdued. You cannot be truly in the arms of Christ and still be afraid. NO never! Peter did not understands this, the wind of life scared him and suddenly he began to sank, Jesus had to help him. Fear has sunk many lives in different spheres of life.
Look at what this great enemy of man did to Job. Job 3:25 says “For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.” Fear nearly finished him thanks to the grace of God. This same fear that made Barak to lost honour which was handed over to a woman, Prophetess Deborah in Judges 4.
Fear of the unknown has made many to commit great mistakes in their lives. Just because of the fear of not been left behind many choose husband and wife wrongly, because of the fear of what people will say many did abortion that cost them great mistakes which they cannot finish paying for till they die. (Listen up! I did not support sex outside marriage) But if you make mistake, you go back to your maker, you cannot hid yourself just like Adam, the father is merciful, loving and caring, he wants you back home. Yee! The fear of being killed by hunger that made many to soil their hands and sold off their birth right just like Esau did. The fear of tomorrow has made a lot of people to belong to secret cults, occultic groups so has to have a better future. Hmmm! alais! all are lies.
May be it’s because of you the Holy Spirit ministered to me to pick up my pen and write this article I want to admonish you there is no record what so ever any where that established that fear give births to greatness but rather we have proofs and records that fear is a killer of visions, greatness and the future. That is the singular reason Apostle Paul re-emphasized in his first letter to his son Timothy Chapter 1:7
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
Celestial wonderful hymn 458 sings
FEAR ye not, fear ye not
Fear ye not, fear ye not
Jesus Christ the conqueror in heaven
For we members of Celestians Church
Fear ye not, fear ye not. Amen.
That’s why when you search the scripture from Genesis to Revelation from King James Version you will find 365 Fear Not! Meaning that each time the day breaks God want you to use each spiritual capsule of fear not every single day. And doing this there is no reason so be carried away or imprisoned by fear. And that’s why the scripture says “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” Heb 4:16. God is your father. Jesus Christ is your Father and Friend. Holy Spirit is your Partner and Companion therefore lean on them, trust them, get connected to them and you shall overcome every battle of fear in your life in Jesus Mighty Name.
