For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
If you want victory, you must expose the place of your doubts and fears. Many of us are not willing to do that. The devil has intimidated so many of us that we hide our eyes from the sunshine of God’s light. There is really nothing to be afraid of when it comes to the devil. “Greater is He [Jesus Christ] that is in you than he [Satan] that is in the world” (1 John 4:4). “And they overcame him [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony” (Revelation 12:11).
Remember, when Satan fell from Heaven, he took one-third of the angels with him. That means two-thirds never fell. They still serve as God’s ministering spirits, and they outnumber the devil’s crowd two-to-one!
Do you know what fear is? False Evidence Appearing Real. You can be fooled by false evidence. Take a bank robber with his hand in his coat pocket pretending it’s a gun. His power comes from the power of deception. His power is the power of fear!
Friend, victory’s arrows cannot be shot through closed windows. Is there any area of your life that you have been unwilling to open the window on? Turn your face to the light and give it to God.
