Fear is bondage. It is a lying spirit that inhibits our ability to choose Light; it is crippling, and gives darkness dominion in our hearts. Truth is the master key that unlocks the chain of fear. The Gospel of Jesus is Truth - and the ultimate form of freedom is found in receiving this Truth. Jesus alone provides salvation and sets the prisoners free. And in The Light of Jesus exists no darkness.
Brethren, if we are to reflect God’s glory, we must stand firm on Truth, and walk in Light. We are called to live unencumbered by the yoke of fear - to take the yoke of Jesus instead, and invite Him alone to rein in our hearts.
Father, we praise You that we are no longer slaves to fear. In The Holy Name of Jesus, we rebuke and renounce the bondage of fear, and claim the Blood Covering of Jesus Christ. Lord, we declare You are our Master, and we invite You - and only You - to rule in our hearts. Father, You have told us not to be afraid, and we choose to believe Your Truth and walk in freedom! We cast our cares upon You, and claim Your peace that transcends all understanding...so that we will reflect Your Light and Glory! In The Precious Name of Jesus, our Savior and King, we pray...Amen!
I sought the LORD, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears
For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death and broke away their chains.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
2 Corinthians 3:17
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
2 Corinthians 3:18
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into His image with intensifying glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not be encumbered once more by a yoke of slavery.
For you did not receive a spirit of slavery that returns you to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship, by whom we cry, "Abba! Father!"
He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets the prisoners free,
Have I not commanded you to be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
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.
