Day 7 Giving God Possession of Our Fear and Anxiety

II Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

Philippians 4:5b-6a “The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing.”

Our culture has become paralyzed by fear and anxiety. Our enemy has used these two tools to create isolation and despair. God has never intended His people to be afraid. He is our protector and our defense. He has never wanted us to be anxious. He is our provider, our peace and our joy.

Today we fast and pray for the power to take off all fear and anxiety and give them to God. We have the privilege to cast all of our cares upon Him and today we actively enjoy that privilege as sons and daughters of God. We declare that we will keep our minds stayed on God and He will fulfill His promise to give us perfect peace. We declare that we will obey God’s Word, His voice and His Holy Spirit and give fear and anxiety no place in our lives. We will trust God because He has never failed or disappointed us and we will choose to deny thoughts of worry and embrace thoughts of peace
