Topic: Avoid The Trap Of Fear
Everywhere fear is born strength dies; you cannot be afraid and be strong at the same time (Deuteronomy 31:6).
SCRIPTURE: For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me. Job 3:25
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Fear is the forerunner of evil.
It is obvious that we live in times where there is palpable fear in the land as if we are in the midst of war. The truth is that the devil uses the weapon of fear to facilitate defeat; wherever the devil wants to work, he sends out fear first. So, we must avoid the trap of fear.
Why must we avoid the trap of fear? We will now see three reasons why fear must be avoided:
1. Fear is a magnet of disaster and destruction. Fear is the forerunner of evil (Job 3:25) – be it the fear of war, terrorists, herdsmen, disease, curse, etc., it magnetises disaster.
2. Fear is the paralysis of strength. Fear paralyzes strength. Everywhere fear is born strength dies; you cannot be afraid and be strong at the same time (Deuteronomy 31:6). The choice for fear is the choice against strength and the choice for strength is the choice against fear (Joshua 10:25).
3. Fear delivers torment (1 John 4:18). Fear is a demon; it is a spirit that torments. And the torment of fear can be worse than the torment of disease.

As a matter of fact, the torment of fear will be a precursor or a kindergarten for what is called anxiety neurosis; where the victim’s whole body is miserable, shaking and vibrating; the person can even run at the shaking of a leaf or can bind the devil because a mosquito just flew around him. That will not be your portion. Make up your mind to kill fear by all means.
