On Friday, Pastor Donald Chisholm (Latter Rain Cathedral, Lockport, NY) shared these words on the Weekly Wrap-up Show:
“Jesus had no fear. Suppose you had no fear? When you heard God you responded right away because you would have no fear of what someone would do or say. The power of God could flow through you uninterrupted. Fear interrupts the power of God in your life.”
Wow, those words stuck with me as I developed the teaching for this week.
Suppose you had no fear? How could God use you for His greater plan?
As I shared today on the Morning Prayer Call you can live fearlessly. The word declares in 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
So if the spirit of fear is not from God it must originate from other sources: self and/or the enemy.
What God gives is love. In fact, God is love. I John 4:8 (NIV) reminds us that “whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
Therefore, when we are full of God, we are full of love and can flow in the power of God uninterrupted!
Even if you’re scared, “Do it afraid” (Joyce Meyer). When you do it afraid you chose to take the fearless way and your courage subsequently ELIMINATES FEAR from the equation. Remember, the spirit of fear can only consume you when you give in. But when you step out in faith you give yourself permission to live fearlessly. And oh the places you will go!!!
Join us this week for more on how embracing God’s love allows us to live fearlessly.
