Topic: The Virtues Of Fearlessness
by Pastor Paul Enenche
Fearlessness is a raw material for strength.
SCRIPTURE: And do not [for a moment] be frightened or intimidated in anything by your opponents and adversaries, for such [constancy and fearlessness] will be a clear sign (proof and seal) to them of [their impending] destruction, but [a sure token and evidence] of your deliverance and salvation, and that from God. Philippians 1:28 (AMP)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To be fearless is to keep company with God; to be fearful is to keep company with the devil.
Yesterday, we saw that one of the weapons of the devil against the children of God is the weapon of fear. To be trapped by fear is to be positioned for destruction by the enemy. We also saw the reasons to avoid the trap of fear at all cost.
Beloved, if you are to avoid fear, embrace fearlessness. And today we shall be seeing the virtues of fearlessness.
1. Fearlessness delivers unbeatable strength.
In Proverbs 28:1, the Bible says, the wicked flee when no man pursues but the righteous are bold as a Lion.
So, the Lion is bold and fearless. And Proverbs 30:30 tells what that fearlessness offers the lion: A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any battle….So, to be fearless is to be strong. That is a straight line equation: the Lion is bold, and because the Lion is bold, it is strong. It does not turn away from any challenge. So, fearlessness is a raw material for strength.
2. Fearlessness, boldness, courage attracts the Presence of God.
If you refuse to fear, you will experience God’s company (Amos 3:3); He will go with you into battles (1 Chronicles 28:20). The Presence of God is palpable with the fearless. To be fearless is to keep company with God; to be fearful is to keep company with the devil.
3. Fearlessness, boldness or courage guarantees the destruction of the adversary (Philippians 1:28)
Fearlessness confirms the destruction of the adversary.
Receive the baptism of the spirit of fearlessness and courage on your life today, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: To be fearless is to keep company with God; to be fearful is to keep company with the devil.
- Reject every attempt by the enemy to cast fear upon you.
- Maintain the atmosphere of God’s Presence always.
