DAY 24 THURSDAY: JANUARY 2019

GIVE NO ROOM TO FEAR!

For the thing I greatly fear has come upon me, and what I dreaded has happened to me (Job 3:25).

Fear is a torment and a killer; it kills faster than any deadly disease that one can ever imagine. A Christian should never give room to fear. When a Christian gives room to fear, he lives a life of bondage. Anyone who lives in bondage is limited in every capacity. The Bible says in the opening text that the thing I greatly fear has come upon me, and what I dreaded has happened to me. This shows that Job was living in fear. Whoever lives in fear is like a coward who will fail to actualize his potentials in life.

God does not want us to live in fear as Christians because whoever lives in fear is limiting the power of God in his life. That is why the Bible says in 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” An adage says that a coward dies many times before his actual death. Therefore, anyone who gives room to fear is like a coward who dies many times. Every Christian should learn to be bold like a lion and be harmless like a dove.

Many a time, Jesus Christ rebuked His disciples for being afraid because He knew the repercussions and the consequences of living in fear. That is the reason why the Bible says in 1 John 4:18, “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” Fear will always limit man’s potentials and abilities in the Lord. Therefore, a Christian should avoid putting himself in bondage in life as a result of fear.

Daily Tip: A Christian should never give room to fear but he should be confident and courageous in the Lord. Shalom!

Golden Text: The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1).
