Walking in God’s Authority

Inhibitor #4Fear

Walking in God’s Authority!

Second Timothy 1:7-8 declares, “God has not given us a spirit of fear.” Fear paralyzes us and keeps us from wielding the authority we have in Christ to bring healing to others and to ourselves.

First John 5:18 teaches us that “the wicked one does not touch [whoever is born of God]” (see also Luke 10:19). But some people have suffered backlash from the enemy when they engaged in spiritual warfare and are now afraid.

There are many reasons for backlash. Here are some ways to guard against it: Be led by the Spirit; make sure that Satan has no legal right to attack; and obtain prayer covering. We will learn about the results of prayerlessness tomorrow.

After taking these steps, we can confront the darkness because we have the authority to do so. We need not be afraid of obeying God’s directives even if it requires engaging in strategic warfare.

Luke 12:32 gives us wise counsel: “‘Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.'”
