It is astonishing how many Christians limp through life in utter defeat, never experiencing the life of victory or the full joy of their salvation because they listen to and believe the lies of Satan. Their lives are filled with fear, anxiety, worry and stress. The Bible says that Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10) and that he roams around like a prowling lion, looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8). He will go after your mind, your appearance, your identity, your character – heck, even your salvation, especially the latter! That’s why God tells you to be on your guard and let your mind be under the control and influence of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:6). It’s time for you to apply God’s Word, as it speaks against fear and anxiety, and to start walking in Christ’s victory.
25 Bible Verses That Speak Against Fear – Walk in Christ’s Victory Today!
Do not be conformed to the things of this world – instead be transformed by the renewal of your mind (the way you think!). When you truly accept and believe that you are sons/daughters of God and that His blood is running through your veins, you’ll look at things in an entirely new perspective.
We cannot expect to get our spiritual nourishment from church only. Sadly, church has mostly failed to take information and correctly apply it so that transformation can happen. When we study, read and listen to God’s Word, and then begin to apply it in our lives, true repentance and victory will happen! Fear and anxiety may come, but we will be able to stand firm. It’s time to take those old hurts, pain and struggles and nail it to Calvary’s cross once and for all and walk in the freedom that has been bought for you at the highest possible price! (1 Corinthians 7:23) The best part is – He gives it to you for free! All you need to do is just believe that! Sounds like “Disney-magic”, but truly it’s that simple! Get your identity in God and grasp it – then walk in victory!
