Day 5 ~1 John 4:18 ~ There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.The word fear means ~ an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat.I have heard it preached more times than I can remember that I should FEAR the LORD. In fact, it was that FEAR of GOD, of HELL, and of JUDGEMENT that brought me to more than one altar during my short life.I would pray and beg God for forgiveness in order to avoid the eternal fires of hell. Before long, I'd be back in the same condition I was in before, yielding to the desires of my flesh and avoiding God.It was only after hitting my rock bottom that I began to learn …

2 Timothy 1:7 ~ For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. If you want power practice love and self-control. A person without self-control is like a city without walls. A city without walls is like a country without borders. The wrong ones get in and take over and overwhelm your power. It's also like food addiction. If you don't have self-control you will use food as a solution for stress, for anxiety, and as a substitute for boredom. Without self-control, you have no borders and can easily be overtaken by the enemy...........by addiction. Let the right foods in and keep the wrong ones out. Want POWER over food addiction? Practice self-control.

Day 4 Psalm 27:1 ~ Of David. The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? A stronghold is a place of security, a place of survival. When you feel under attack do not worry. Trust God to fight for you. Remember, God's invisible hand is mightier than any weapon that forms against you. You may not see God's hand at work but you can FEEL God's hand at work. God is Spirit and like the wind. You can't see the wind but if you'll be still, you can feel its effects. When in distress, retreat to your strong tower.

Day 2 Joshua 1:9 ~Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Dismayed means to feel distressed. Distress means to feel extreme sorrow, anxiety, or pain. I am commanded to NOT feel distressed. Don't be dismayed. God is there wherever you go. God goes before you, with you and also has your back. There is nothing to fear except fear itself.
