What are you most afraid of?  What fear goes beyond the temporary shock of something like a snake, clown or spider? This month, let’s attack the “scary things” that have tried to debilitate progress and become permanent in our lives.  With the power of God, now is the time to conquer our deepest, darkest fears!

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power,
and of love, and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7

Here are some of the fears many of us encounter:

  • Running out of money, resources, or food
  • Making a wrong decision with family or business
  • Fear of failure and the shame or judgement that results
  • Generational curses or demonic influence
  • Rejection in relationships or career path
  • Getting sick or dying from disease
  • Losing control and becoming stressed or depressed

When waging a spiritual assault against fear, you need to know what God’s Word says about overcoming it. This is a serious war – fear wants to control, torment and keep you in bondage. Unforgiveness, jealousy, bitterness and anger are all some of the tactics fear will use to oppress you.  Meditating on God’s Word and hearing the good news of Jesus Christ weakens the grip of fear over your life.  Instead of fear causing anxiety and making you afraid to live victoriously, you can confront it with the powerful promises of God!

There are so many, but here are two scriptures you can store in your arsenal…

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand
of my righteousness. – Isaiah 41:10

In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths. – Proverbs 3:6

Friend, God loves you and wants you to be free. Let Him show you how to live a fearless, blessed life. Seek Him and unleash the supernatural power residing in you. Today is a perfect time to begin a new relationship with your Heavenly Father and…Live Fearless!

Access to Power

Access to Power

Let’s get right to it.  The extra strength and guidance you need for victory in every aspect of daily life: relationships, work, family, dreams, finances, decisions, wellness, self-esteem – is readily accessible through the power of God and His anointing.

Yes, this anointing is not only responsible for miracles, but it is also necessary to do the following in and through your life:

 –  heal and restore any type of brokenness
–  strengthen and empower your spirit
–  overcome and destroy any demonic oppression
–  set you free from bondage: emotional, mental or physical
–  demonstrate God’s pure love to the world
–  help to discern the truth
–  guide you to accomplish your purpose in life

Many of us are not aware that we have access to God’s powerful anointing right now! And that God desires us to flow in this anointing every day as we live out His purpose in us.   Without it, the challenges of life tend to wear down our faith, distract our attention away from God, and hinder our spiritual progress. (The book of Acts in the bible gives further explanation of God’s anointing.)

Maybe you can relate to being a Christian who has experienced feeling exhausted, frustrated and powerless. You come to a point in which you are no longer thriving.  It feels as if you are suffocating in fear, worry, anger and condemnation.  You find yourself becoming resentful and bitter; no longer helping others and sharing the love of Christ.  Thankfully, God is the ultimate power source to overcome all we will ever encounter in life!  This power is essential to living a victorious life.  Even better, you and I have access to this power through God’s anointing today!

Any person who has received the gift of salvation also has access to this power.  You do not have to be a preacher or work in ministry to be anointed.  God can and will work through anyone willing to “work” for Him.  He loves you and does not care about your race, age, sex, occupation, status or background – only your heart.

Now it is God who makes both us
and you stand firm in Christ.
He anointed us,
set his seal of ownership on us,
and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit,
guaranteeing what is to come.
– 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 (New International Version)

You can access the anointing of God through the baptism of the Holy Spirit.  When you are ready, simply pray and ask God for this powerful gift of being anointed and filled with the Holy Spirit.  Once received, continue to seek God and His word to learn more about this extraordinary way of living!  He is ready to do a mighty work through you!

In the next blog post, we will talk about how to flow in His anointing.  If you want to learn more about God’s anointing through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, go to Week 4: You Are Anointed in the Power Over All book.
