I'd like to address something that I'm seeing more and more. Obviously, there is a lot of fear in our world today. Fear of terrorism, fear of zika, fear of natural disasters, fear of governments and leaders. Fear is on every side but there is a different fear that I am finding more and more, the spirit of fear and the attack on our mind.
I'm finding a lot of individuals that are struggling with fears that are not ancored in truth. I myself have struggled with this fear having social anxiety. That fear that grips you and makes you panic, even though there is no danger or reality to what you fear will happen. Sometimes, it's simply a fear that comes upon you to terrorize you and you have no idea why.
There are many young people especially that I am seeing struggle with this. I consult them and pray but it seems the fear is too strong in their mind. I can relate, I know the terror of dealing with social anxiety before people but as i've trusted the Lord over the years, the fear has been more and more conquered.
I believe we need to continue in the truth, even though the lies want to knock us off the road of truth. Sometimes the lies are so loud and realistic that we find ourselves defenseless. But we have hope. The Bible tells us the truth and if we will grab hold of it and not let go, we will eventually begin to renew our mind and be ancored in that truth.
Satan is playing with our minds in this generation but He who is in you, is more powerful than He who is in the world. …
3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming, and is already in the world at this time. 4You, little children, are from God and have overcome them, because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. - 1 John 4:4
The ages range actually, from old to very young. Believers, you must stand on the Word to get through this mental battle against the enemy of your soul. Use the sword that the Lord has given you and rise up in Truth. That sword is the Word of God, the Bible.
I recently had a battle with strong fear and I had to get into God's word and read and seek Him over and over and over again. Everyday. My mind eventually began to mold to the truth and the fear leave me, even though it still tries to overtake me. The Lord showed me that the enemy uses loud threatening tactics but they are empty against God's people. We must learn to do spiritual warfare with God's word because im convinced, the battle might just increase on earth as our enemy sees his end coming soon.
7Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. 8Be sober-minded and alert. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9Resist him, standing firm in your faith and in the knowledge that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kinds of suffering.… 1 Peter 5:8
