“Don’t let it in”
2 Cor 4:13 But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed, therefore I spoke,” we also believe, therefore we also speak,
2 Tim 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Num 14:24 But My servant Caleb, because he has had a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land which he entered, and his descendants shall take possession of it.
Heb 2:14 Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless (Destroy) him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery (bondage) all their lives.
FEAR AND BONDAGE GO TOGETHER
2 Cor 7:5 For even when we came into Macedonia our flesh had no rest, but we were afflicted on every side: conflicts without, fears within.
WE CANNOT CONTROL EVERYTHING THAT IS OUT SIDE OF US. WE CAN CONTROL WHAT IS INSIDE US.
THE ENEMY CANNOT PUT FEAR IN YOU.
2 Cor 11:28 “Apart from such external things, there is the daily pressure on me of concern for all the churches.”
JUST BECAUSE WE FEEL IT, DOES NOT MEAN WE HAVE LOST A BATTLE… IT JUST MEANS DON’T LET IT IN.
John 14:1 Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.
26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.
27 Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.
IT’S UP TO YOU WHAT GETS IN YOU.
WE ARE TO RESIST FEAR.
Isaiah 41:10 Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
