Topic: “The Tragedy of Fear”
Fear is a magnet for evil just as faith is a magnet for good.
Scripture: Job 3:25
For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.
Thought for The Day: Fear is a magnet for evil just as faith is a magnet for good.
The spirit of fear has been confirmed to be one of the deadly enemies of destiny. This includes the fear of failure, the fear of the future, the fear of the unknown, etc.
Now, how is fear such a deadly enemy of destiny? What are the tragedies of living in fear?
i) Fear invites disaster
Fear is a magnet for evil just as faith is a magnet for good (Job 3:25).
ii) Fear frustrates mentality
A frightened person is a mentally incapacitated person; and you need your mind to fulfil your destiny and arrive at the desired future (Philippians 4:8).
iii) Fear paralyzes action and initiative (1 Kings 19:1-5).
Fear paralyzes action and initiative. For instance, if someone is told that he is HIV positive and he allows fear to set in, his actions could be paralyzed. He may not make any further plan for his future or take life seriously; rather, he may just be waiting to die. But that shouldn’t be!
iv) Fear equals faith in the wickedness of the devil and doubt in the faithfulness of God (Matthew 14:30-31).
Fear makes a person to exercise faith in the opposite direction, the direction of the wickedness of the devil, which equals disaster.
v) Fear paralyzes acceleration
When a person is frozen with fear, his progress in life and destiny is arrested (1 Kings 19:1-5).
Beloved, I counsel you to deal decisively with fear in order to fulfil your destiny.
Remember this: Fear is a magnet for evil just as faith is a magnet for good.

REFLECTION: Fill the bottle with water and it will displace the air; fill the room with light and it will displace the darkness. Fill your life with the word of faith and it will displace the spirit of fear.
