My pastor recently said fear is the enemy’s number one weapon and is like an atomic bomb, designed to wipe out everything…WOW! Seems pretty powerful. Fortunately for us, everything, including fear, was already conquered at the cross through the crucifixion of Christ. We just have to activate our faith and there’s no better time than right now!
Start with this prayer in Ephesians 3:14-21 and ask God to increase your faith to overcome all obstacles.
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Good scripture to highlight:
John 14:27: I am leaving you with a gift–peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
