Fear Is A Liar

I was saved at forty- four years old. I was addicted to pain medicine, filled with fear, anxiety, worry, and depression. I was living, but I wasn’t alive. Just going through the motions. Living on borrowed time. There was no Emotion or Love . I had put a defense wall so high around me, no-one was getting in and I couldn’t get out. No Emotions and no feelings meant no -one could hurt me anymore.

One morning I had a nervous breakdown grabbed a bag of clothes and left my house. I drove for hours shaking like a leaf, not know where I was going or where I would end up. I ended up at my sisters home five hours away. That night I feel to my knees and said ‘God, I can’t do this anymore. The way I’m living my life isn’t working . I even tried living like others thought I should. That’s not working either.’ I wanted a new plan for my life. I didn’t know what to do anymore. I was just done. I had hit rock bottom. I didn’t know God, but I knew His plan for my life had to be better than anything that I had come up with. I gave Him my life. I asked Him, “Lord I give you my life, the life of this messed up woman, and if you can do anything with my life, to do it.” After He did, He delivered me from addiction, anxiety, worry, and depression. I had lived my life in fear every waking day for forty – four years. He delivered me, from panic attacks. I had been in-prisoned by fear, and anxiety but now it was over. Psalm 34;4 says, I cried out to Him and He delivered me. After I prayed the prayer of salvation and truly meant every word shackles fell from me. From that point on. I had to renew my mind according to the Word of God. As I did I became able to maintain my deliverance.

Fear is called by different names: worry, anxiety, and panic. The dictionary calls it a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain; whether the threat is real or imagined. Fear can be rational or irrational. God defines fear as useless, a waste, the enemy of faith, and in direct opposition of Him. Fear makes things appear one way when God’s Word says something completely different. Fear is a deceiver. As believers, we are not to take part in any of it.

There are consequences if we allow fear into our lives. It wastes time, potential, and destinies. Fear paralyzes you. It stops you from following God’s call on your life, either, it becomes a generational curse, it infects children, grandchildren, and so on until someone decides to stop it. The delivered will lose their deliverance. Allowing even a little fear in your life allows Satan into your life.

There are some beliefs about fear that are absolute lies. First fear is a natural part of life. It’s believable because there are many who make fear a way of life. It’s not normal for believers though. 2 Timothy 1:7 says “For God has not given us a spirit of fear…” Reading that, we see two things: fear isn’t of God and it’s a spirit. Therefore it’s not natural m but supernatural. To a demonic spirit that stops you from fulfilling God’s call on your life.

The second lie is that rational and irrational fears. The American Psychiatric Association lumps fears into two groups of fears that makes sense and fears that don’t. God doesn’t group fears because there are no rational fears. All fear is irrational. It’s not logical to be fearful when you claim to trust God. There is no one fear that makes sense in the eyes of God.

The next lie is a good amount of fear is healthy. Philippians 4:6 answers this by saying “ Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything; by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Which transcends all understanding, will guard your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus.” The peace of God commands us to not worry about anything. He means it. We’re not to worry about the future. The unknown, our children, our jobs, our finances. The Scripture says that if we ask it of God, we will receive peace.

Another lie is fear and worry are ways to show love and concern. Living this lie will destroy your children. Satan will take your good intentions, distort them, and still your children’s destinies. If they don’t draw the bloodline of Jesus, they can expect it to continue down the family line.

Jesus’s words in Matthew chapter 6 commands us not to worry about our futures. He compares us to the birds of the air and the grass in the field. They don’t worry about their futures, but God sustains them. He goes on saying, “So do not worry saying, “what shall we eat?” Or “what shall we drink?” Or “what shall we wear?” For the pagan run after all these things, and your Heavenly Father know that you need them. But first seek His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things shall be given to you as well. Tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Pagans – the unGodly – act in fear. When believers respond to situation with fear, we’re teaching others that fear is acceptable and that God can’t be trusted. We’re the redeemed of the Lord and have nothing to be anxious about.

The final lie is there are people who are attacked with fear more than others. This is absolutely false. Satan delights in attacking believers. The difference between defeated and victorious believers is the defeated give in to fear while the victorious stand again fear. When we live in defeat, we’re not making decisions based on faith.d contrariwise, when we live in victory, we’re only making decisions asked on faith. Even if fear is still present, the victorious believer will continue on. They take up their faith shield, hold it high, and follow after God.

They enemy will do anything he can to delay you. It’s possible to have peace in your spirit. But have anxiety in your mind. You can also experience peace in your while you have turmoil in your spirit. Learn the discern between the two. If your mind is at peace and your spirit is in turmoil, though, your heading down a path of devastation. Too often people wait until they get their head wrapped around a situation to move forward in life. And they never get anything done. Always be sure to check your spirit.

There’s a song written by Zach Williams called Fear is a Liar. Zach says it’s for anyone who struggles with fear or going through something. I hope this song gives them hope, to call the devil out.
