The Spirit of Fear (4/2/2017)

What is Fear ?
* Fear is an acronymn for false evidence appearing real.
* Fear is a spirit [2 Tim 1:7]
* Fear is not of God
* There is a fear of God which is reverence or respect for God. That is not the kind of fear we are talking about here.
* We are talking about a spirit of timidity or cowardice which is not of God.

Reasons why we need to get rid of fear
1. Fear connects you to the thing you fear [Job 3:25; Jer 1:17]
2. Fear can lead to missed opportunities [Matt 25:24-25;
3. Fear opens the door for the enemy to oppress us [Isa 54:14; Acts 10:38]
4. For God to work in our lives we must get rid of fear [2 Chron 20:1-3; 14-15; 16-17]
5. Fear of people is like being in a trap [Prov 29:25; Ps 118:6]
6. Fear can affect people’s eternal destiny [Rev 21:8]

How does fear come?
1. Faith comes by hearing the Word of God
2. Fear comes by hearing the lies of the devil [Num 13-14]. When people speak to you and it puts you in fear that is not God speaking [Neh 6:14; Joshua 14:8]
3. Fear comes as we look at circumstances that contradict the Word [Matt 14:25-32]

How to overcome fear?
1. We overcome fear through prayer [Ps 34:4; Luke 18:1; Ac 4:13]
2. Perfect love casts out fear [1 Jn 4:18]
3. We overcome fear as we establish ourselves in righteousness [Isa 54:14; Pr 28:1]
4. We overcome fear by walking in the fear of the Lord. When we walk in the fear of the Lord it dispels every other kind of fear.
5. We overcome fear by having an awareness of God’s constant abiding presence with us at all times. We become afraid when we believe that God may leave us or that God is not with us [Ps 23:4; Heb 13:5-
