Are you overwhelmed by a feeling of dread and a spirit of fear? Are you living constantly afraid and worried?
Proverbs 15:15 says: All the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil [by anxious thoughts and forebodings], but he who has a glad heart has a continual feast [regardless of circumstances] (AMPC).
An ‘evil foreboding” is the fear of something bad happening when nothing was going wrong.
Instead of allowing that spirit of fear to take control of your life, look forward in joyful expectations to what the Lord has to offer! The Lord is on your side. Who can be against you?

Psalm 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life. Of whom shall I be afraid?

Help me to be confident in all situations, knowing that You hold the future and trusting that everything works together for my good.
Joel 2:21 Fear not, O land. Be glad and rejoice, for the LORD has done marvelous things!

Prayer – I Will Not Fear
Don’t allow this spirit of fear to get the better of me. Break that chain, oh merciful Savior, for the devil cannot win this battle within my mind.
With You I am strong and I will overcome. Take control, guide my thoughts and my actions. In Your mighty name, I pray, fear will be destroyed, Amen and Amen!
