Fear is an unpleasant sensation caused by the presence or anticipation of danger. It is also a spiritual condition that is capable of overwhelming the physical. Only a strongman could arrest someone without disturbing his sleep, peace, or tranquillity. The devil also uses this tool to control humanity and keep them out of God’s plans. Believers must not allow fear to prosper in their lives.
Fear and doubt are closely related, and you must not allow them to rule over your days or nights. When you allow fear to rule over your day or night, you will be in trouble.
“10Fear 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. 14Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. 5Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west”Isaiah 41:10, 14; 43:5
