Fear is paralyzing. If you let it, it instantly robs you of your ability to move forward with your life in
an enjoyable and healthy way, and receive all God has for you.
Though we know that “God has not given us the spirit of fear” according to 2 Timothy 2:7, we fail
to recognize fear as what the Bible calls it: a spirit from the enemy.
The word fear in this verse is “deilia,” which means timidity. So then, God has not given us a
cowardly spirit that causes us to draw back. He has not ordained that we be afraid of any of life’s
challenges—whatever comes against us, whether that be natural or spiritual.
Sickness, enemies, or adversity in any form don’t have to intimidate you once you recognize
cowardliness and timidity are manifestations of an evil spirit. You can wage spiritual war against
fear. You can tear down this stronghold!
Ephesians 6:12 NIV plainly says, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the
rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual
forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
