Fear is a very crippling thing. It keeps us from growing into the person that God wants us to be. If we allow Satan to penetrate our mind with lies, we fall into despair. But, if we are like the solider described in Ephesians 6:17, Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. We can protect our minds and train our brain to extinguish anything that Satan tries to come against us with. We are in a fight everyday. The only protection is to stay close to the Lord. In John 14:6, Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. God is greater and has full authority. Never doubt his power to overcome the things that we cannot.
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient.
