DAY 10- COMMANDING THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER TOPIC: OVERCOMING YOUR FEARS (1)
TOPIC: OVERCOMING YOUR FEARS (1)
READ: Romans 3:21-6:23
TEXT: ‘’You will be secure because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety.’’ Job 11:18 NIV
Famous people throughout history have suffered from phobias. Napoleon III was crippled by ailurophobia, an irrational fear of cats. Queen Elizabeth, I was allegedly terrorized by anthophobia, an abnormal fear of flowers. Billionaire Howard Hughes was practically incapacitated by mysophobia, a pathological fear of germs. Both Edgar Allen Poe and Harry Houdini are believed to have suffered from claustrophobia. Even the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, is said to have wrestled with agoraphobia, a fear of crowds and public places.
The trouble is that many of us deny dealing with any kind of overwhelming fear, and rarely consider it a serious problem. But the fact remains that our fears hinder us on our journey towards change, and unless we face them we’ll never reach our God-given potential. Maybe you don’t view the thing that’s bothering you as a fear at all. It could be a feeling or situation you habitually avoid or leave to others to handle.
Whatever it is, the only way to overcome it is to call it what it is, confront it, draw on God’s strength, and make a decision to change. And today he offers you his strength to do it. Here’s a promise you can stand on:
‘You will be secure because there is hope; you will look about you and… rest in safety’ (Job 11:18 NIV). Where does that promise originate? The Bible – God’s infallible Word! And here’s another ‘fear not’ promise: ‘Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand’ (Isaiah 41:10 NKJV).
I rebuke every spirit of fear out of my life, in Jesus name.
I am as bold as the lion of the tribe of Judah, in Jesus name.
I am more than a conqueror, in Jesus name.
I am moving to my promised land in Jesus name.
I shall not die before my time, in Jesus name.
