The devil thrives on fear and uses it constantly to lead us astray, knowing that if we give in to his fear tactics, we will yield up the tools that God has given us to fight the crippling condition of fear. We therefore need to be constantly alert to his strategy of having us live in constant fear: of illness, others, poverty, failure, and the list goes on...
We must therefore let God into our lives and allow His perfect love to bathe us and take over our being. We will in turn acquire His gift of a spirit of love, power and a sound mind. We will find ourselves seeing each other through the eyes of Jesus, feeling compassion and not fear. Once love controls our thinking and actions, power and a sound mind will follow. We will experience a calm peace that is inexplicable in our human terms.
Allow God into your situation of fear and I guarantee that you will come out filled with joy deep in your heart, where no one or nothing will be able to snatch it away from you. It may not happen immediately but if you allow yourself to soak in his love, it is inevitable.
