Since God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,” 6 we can boldly quote, God is there, ready to help; I’m fearless no matter what. Who or what can get to me?” (Hebrews 13:5-6, The Message)

“So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose?” (Romans 8:31, The Message)

I think one of the hardest things in the midst of a battle is dealing with fear. Fear is another tactic that the enemy uses to try to cripple us. When we are on the path God wants us on there are a lot of known’s and unknown’s and the enemy likes to sneak into the unknown areas and cause fear to rise up. If he can get you to fear, he can get you to slow down, or stop.

All of the days up to this one I’ve had examples of how God gave instruction in the middle of a battle and then stepped in and defeated the enemy. Today, I want you to focus on the fact that God is for you, and if He be for you, who or what can be against you? Even though it may be hard for you to see at this very moment, the battle has been won, you will be victorious if you don’t give up and you rely on God as your rescuer.

We can read about battles throughout the Old Testament much like the ones I have touched on the past few days where God stepped in and wiped out entire army’s, thousands of people. Do you really think He can’t take care of your devil? I don’t want to sound like I’m making lightly of your battle because I’m not. I fully understand that some of these principles are sometimes easier said than done, trust me, I get it. I want you to take this into perspective and begin to whole heartedly rely on God. Realize that He has more than enough power to defeat the enemy in your life and your battle plan for today is to step out of fear and step into confidence that God’s got this. He’s never going to let you down, He will never walk off and leave you. You need to repeat this in your mind today, “God is there, ready to help; I’m fearless no matter what. Who or what can get to me?”

Fear is being stripped from your life today, you will walk into your destiny!
