A Confession of Faith To Overcome Fear
You can live without fear. Impossible? Unrealistic? No! You see, fear is not just a reaction to external circumstances. It is a spiritual force. It begins inside you, and it is totally destructive. In fact, fear is Satan’s primary weapon. He moves in response to fear the way God moves in response to faith. The devil uses fear to challenge the promises of God.
You can rid your life of fear forever by guarding your heart (not feeding it with fear-filled media) and filling up on the Word of God, which is full of hope, peace and promise. Fear is a battle in your mind, but you don’t combat thoughts with thoughts, you combat thoughts with words. Take a stand against fear, and begin today by speaking this confession of faith to overcome fear:
God has not given me the spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind. No weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against me in judgment is condemned. Fear has no dominion over me because the Greater One lives in me. He has given me the victory in every area of life. The Lord is on my side, so I will not fear. What can man do to me? Nothing, because greater is He who is in me, than he who is in the world. The peace of God that passes all understanding guards my heart and mind through Christ Jesus.
Spirit of fear, I rebuke you, in the Name of Jesus. I cast you out of my mind. I cast you off my body. I have no more fear. God loves me as much as He loves Jesus. The love of God is shed abroad in my heart by the Spirit of God. And perfected love casts out all fear. Fear and every bondage, you get out. Leave me now in the Name of Jesus! You’ll not come near my dwelling. I dwell in the secret place of the Most High God. Praise God!
I have not received a spirit of slavery to fear, but I have received the spirit of adoption, whereby I cry “Abba, Father.” I belong to the Lord, and am no longer a slave to dread, fear, stress, anxiety or depression. I am set free from him who had the power of death, the devil, by the precious blood of the Lamb.
I don’t allow my heart to be troubled because I trust in the Lord. I stand on His promises in Psalm 91, and I declare that no evil shall befall me, neither shall any plague or calamity come near me, my family or our dwelling places. The angels of the Lord surround me and watch over my family and me. I cover my family and myself with the blood of Jesus—spirit, soul and body.
Thank You, Lord, that I dwell in the shadow of Your wings, and You protect me. My steps are ordered by You, and You lead me and guide me in the way I should go. Thank You, Lord, that You are the Good Shepherd and that You watch over me and take care of me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen!
Speak this confession of faith to overcome fear every day. Keep speaking the truth of the Word. Keep guarding your heart against negativity. Rebuke and resist fear, and watch your faith soar! As you do, you will become a more victorious Christian, and everyone will see your peace and want what you have. What a wonderful witness of God’s goodness to the world. God makes all the difference!
