Fear we conquered and conquer

Isaiah 41:10
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Fear is known as “phobia” , a dread of an anticipated harm or something.
God encourages Israel not to be consumed with fear like we often are; because He is with thee and He is a God of unfailing strength, One who strengthens your weary state, helps you when there’s need and lifts you up when you feel overwhelmed and incapable, overcoming seemingly impossible challenges empowering you to boldly step on intimidating paths, and break through obstacles like Cyrus. Like Cyrus He enables you to break through, like Moses, he enables you to conquer the Amalekite, the fear that so dreads you. His words carry a reassuring tone, reminding Israel that with Him as their guide, nothing is unattainable.

Fear is indeed a powerful force that can paralyze us and prevent us from living our lives to the fullest. We have many phobias for instance; fear of what will be in the future, fear of the unknown, fear of the past, fear of failure, fear fear fear of whatever you may call it.. Nevertheless scripture says;

2 Timothy:1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Fear is a spirit, when overwhelmed with fear what’s your response: Cringe in or arise in boldness? We have seen great men respond and overcome fear despite daunting challenges: David as relates to Goliath said unto Saul;

1 Samuel 17:36
Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.

What is it that gave David the courage to go forth and face the dreaded Goliath? It was God’s past victories in His life. what is it that drove Moses off His feet, he that ran in fear from Egypt returns as a hero to deliver his brethen? Certainly God’s assurance of His presence: I will be with You. What is it that gave Daniel’s friends courage to withstand the fire? I say Faith drove their courage!! What is it that gave Esther the courage to rise up for her people? Purpose and prayer .
It’s natural to fear, fear gripped Jesus at the thought of the cross nevertheless He prayed.

Luke 22:42-44
..Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

The Lord said:

Luke 4:18
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised…”

The Lord has not given us a spirit of fear , rather He is upon us to break forth and do mightily, He has set us Free from fear as He has given us Sonship in Him, children to call on Him and rely on His righteousness.

Gideon and many are reminded to arise and not fear, take courage, courage is not the absence of fear but rising up to conquer your fear… Take a step forward, arise And pray, arise in faith, arise in your past victories in God, reflect, re align, paralyze the paralyzing fear, conquer, remember we are empowered.
Regardless of the feeling, God is with us, Let us gain control, the future is certainly certain in Him, all fear is faded in His light.

Prophetic Utterance:

Psalms 46:1-3
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.” I am the city of God, I shall not be moved for God dwells in me, I overcome certainly I conquer in Him that gives me strength.
