There is a fear zone, an imaginary place in which seems real and it tries to control us. It is a place in where we agree with the enemy to hold us captive. It is a zone in which we have created to protect from our own insecurities. Somehow we must learn to get past the fear in this challenge. Many people don’t want to even admit they have a fear zone and I will be the first to tell you, I don’t fear anything because I have the protection of God. However, there are times when the fear zone, no matter how hidden or small, it is there, waiting like an empty room to be filled. You fill it with your thinking and with the power of your mind and with the words you speak. Some zones are higher than mountains in which were created with years of labor, adding to the fortress wall. The zone consists of fear of the what ifs and of what people are saying or thinking. Along with the fear of getting out of the box, of trying something new, breaking a tradition, pulling out of the comfort zone, and the fear of failure. As I sat there in church yesterday listening to my husband’s sermon, he has a way to motivate people and pull them through the fear zone. He screams passion with his entire body as he proclaims the message of “Greater things shall you do!” Getting through the fear zone is a place where you can turn people and the world upside down. It is where you can make a difference in the Kingdom of God. It is bringing alignment to His will to our lives with purpose. It is by faith you move this mountain or fortress wall or even the substance in which you have painfully created in your fear zone.
One of the Scriptures in which I taught my boys at a very young age was 2 Timothy 1:7 where it states: God didn’t give us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and sound mind. Wow, doesn’t that Scripture wrap it all up for us! God has given us the power to push through the fear zone. He doesn’t want us to compare ourselves to others or to our circumstances but to His power. It is through the power that knocks down the walls of fear and dissolves the fear zone.
It is through His power we gain strength for a new day and conquer. His Spirit in which lives within us, wants complete control of our entire world. IF we allow His Spirit to move on our behalf and IF we allow His Spirit to be in absolute control, there is no stopping a move of God.
He wants us to push through the fear zone with His love. When you have His love, it rids us of fear. When the love of God creates passion you will say and do those things beyond the fear zone being an example of His love. It is with the power and love that God pushes you toward reaching out to others. Praying for others, laying hands on them as their soul awaits in their fear zone hoping that someone will help them knock down walls.
He wants us to have a sound mind. A mind that is free from worry, doubt and torment from our thoughts, our past or what lies ahead. God has given us the ability to escape the fear zone. We don’t have to exist in fear for it is not of God nor is it His will for us to remain there or even agree with it.
God has given us the power, the love and a sound mind, which will carry us through opposition to triumph over the fear zone. By His power it gives us the ability to bust up the fear zone. Will you be willing to come out and change the world?
Prayer: Lord, I want no fear zone in my life. I want you to have complete control of my very soul and world in which I live in. I want to meditate on you and your will for my life with your promises of your word. I thank you for giving me power, love and sound mind. Jesus name, amen.
I John 4:18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. NIV
2 Timothy 1:7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. NIV
