You have NEVER been called to be in fear. You have ONLY been called to be DETERMINED and to COOPERATE with Heaven.
God said to Abraham in Genesis 15:1 (KJV), “Fear not, I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward“. He said to Joshua in Joshua 8:1 (KJV), “Fear not, neither be thou dismayed“. He said to Gideon in Judges 6:23 (KJV), “fear not: thou shalt not die“. He said to Jacob in Isaiah 41:10 (MSG), “Don’t panic. I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you“.
David knew this and he cooperated with Heaven. In 1 Chronicles 28:20 (KJV) David said to Solomon his son,”Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the LORD God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD”
Why are you in fear? What are you saying to yourself? What are you saying to your children? What are you saying to your body? What are you saying with your mouth in that situation? Are your words filled with fear or with faith? What can you see in that blessed mess? 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV) says, “For God hath not given us the SPIRIT of FEAR; but of POWER, and of LOVE, and of a SOUND MIND“.
David was a man without the Holy Spirit but his words were in agreement with Heaven. He so mastered the Word he was bold enough to ask Solomon to walk without fear. If you are in the Spirit then you need to have the audacity of faith over every situation. If you are in Christ, you were not called into a life of fear. You were called to rule and to reign. Jesus said in Luke 12:32 (KJV), “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom“.
Beloved of the Most High, “God is on your side and you are more than a conqueror” (1 John 4:4). So fear not! The unreal never was and never will be, while the real always was and never ceases to be. Fear not to venture into new vocation; Fear not to transform to a better status; Fear not to give what it takes once you feel led to venture; Fear not to walk on “water”. In whatever street of life you are right now, “Fear not; you will no longer live in shame. Don’t be afraid; there is no more disgrace for you…” Isaiah 54:4 (NLT).
Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.
