One of the enemy’s main goals is to put you and keep you in fear.
He wants you bound and paralyzed by it and he wants you to think you
are all alone. But that’s not true. You are not alone. God is with you.
Recently I was reading the story of Nehemiah and I saw something interesting in his story.
As he was doing the work God had called him to do, which was to build the walls of
Jerusalem, he had opposition. There were men who didn’t want him to succeed and they
used fear to try to stop him. Let’s look at a few scriptures.
“For they all made us afraid, saying, Their hands shall be weakened from the work,
that it be not done.
Now therefore, O God, strengthen my hands.”
“Therefore was he hired, that I should be afraid, and do so, and sin, and that they
might have matter for an evil report, that they might reproach me.”
“Also they reported his good deeds before me, and uttered my words to him.
And Tobiah sent letters to put me in fear.”
As you can see, Nehemiah’s enemies were using fear to try to stop him.
But Nehemiah did not let it stop him. Instead, he put his trust in the
Lord to help him.
I share his story to show you that the enemy is still using the same strategy today.
He is using fear as a weapon against you to try to weaken your hands or to get
you to do something rashly or to doubt God and so much more.
But like Nehemiah you must bring your fears to the Lord.
Make a decision to choose trust in God over fear no matter how intense it is.
Because at the end of the day you have nothing to fear because God is with you.
He is on your side and He will never let you down.
God bless you friends!
Have a great weekend.
