Don't Talk FearFebruary 25, 2018
"Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth" (Prov. 6:2).
With your mouth, you are either going to give God or Satan dominion over you.
When you were born again, you confessed the lordship of Jesus Christ (Rom. 10:9-10). You confessed Jesus as your Lord. Jesus began to have dominion over you and to rule in your life.
But, when you confess Satan's ability to hinder you, to keep you from success, to cause you to fear - even though you are a Christian - you are giving Satan dominion over you. And, naturally, when Satan has dominion over you, you are filled with weakness and fear.
Don't ever confess your fears.
"But what if I'm afraid?" you might ask.
"You" are not really afraid. The Bible says that God has not given you - the real "you" - the spirit of fear, but He's given you the spirit of power, of love, and of a sound mind. Fear isn't something that is coming from the inside of you, trying to get hold of you.
Fear is from the enemy. You have a spirit of power - so say you have! You have a spirit of love - so say you have. You have a spirit of a sound mind - so say you have. When you confess it, then it will begin to dominate you.
Confession: I am never afraid. I do not know fear. I have a spirit of power. I have a spirit of love. I have a sound mind.
