Fear is the substance of our enemy, the one who is lurking about to “steal, kill, and destroy.” When we agree with fear, it builds and effects our environment. We carry it. We talk about it. We release it into the atmosphere. This is what is happening all over our world right now. Spirits of fear are trying to control and delay God’s termination of Covid-19.
Fear opposes faith. It causes immobility and allows the enemy to have his way. In fear we cower, shrinking and trembling at what the news is portraying. We can understand why non-believers are afraid. This pandemic is out of their control, there are many unknowns, and much is at stake. Let me say it again, fear is the substance of darkness, the substance of the enemy who is trying to “steal, kill and destroy.”
“The thief does not come except to steal, kill and destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
2 Timothy 2:7
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
“Life and death are in the power of the tongue…”
1 John 3:8
“The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.”
As followers of Jesus Christ, we do not give in to fear. “We walk by faith and not by sight.” 2 Cor. 5:7 The kingdom of God lives within us and this kingdom need not be affected by our external world. If we give in to fear, we cannot release the peace of God into our world. We cannot speak, “Peace! Be still!” to our storm if our peace is overruled by fear. What are we releasing into our families, our nation and around the world? Are we activating God’s domain? Heaven on earth? Or are we multiplying fear adding to the chaos?
Is God taking a coffee break right now, watching to see how the world handles this? No! He is at work this very second responding to the prayers of the saints, releasing wisdom, healing, provision and peace. Angels are on assignment. Lets’ come into alignment with Jesus, “who came to destroy the works of the devil.” Our words activate kingdoms, let’s activate the power of God to terminate this virus, not only in our nation, but around the world. Rise up in faith, speak and believe!
“Nothing is impossible with God!” Our God spoke the world into existence, delivered the Israelite’s through the red sea, brought forth water out of a rock, rained down manna from heaven, multiplied food from a boys lunch, healed the sick, set the captives free and raised the dead! He is the ultimate power source, able to annihilate any plan of the enemy!
Let’s agree in prayer:
Covid-19 you are terminated in Jesus name! Healing, provision and peace, be released over our leaders, families, nation and world! May the supernatural comfort of the Holy Spirit fill our homes. May this season lead into a great outpouring and time of redemption. Father God, bless every Pastor, small business and all those affected by this outbreak. Let our economy rebound and increase. Lord, help every mom with kids at home. May your love Lord, be expressed one to another. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
