Burst That Monster 1

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.


“Fear is faith in the negative.”

Nothing destroys like fear. Nothing hinders miracles like fear. Nothing torments like fear. Nothing cripples destinies like it. Saul disobeyed God, got into sin and lost his kingship. At the root of it was fear. What was he afraid of? He feared the rejection of the people and this led him to compromise and he ended up in self-destruction – 1 Samuel 15:22-24.

Look at Job. He was successful and prosperous but was overtaken by fear – Job 3:25. He was afraid of falling; he was afraid of losing his wealth, his honour, his social status.

KNOW THIS – Fear is as powerful as faith. Fear is faith in the negative. Faith produces positive miracles; fear produces negative miracles. When you walk in fear, you walk in captivity and you give the enemy the atmosphere to perform.

What is your fear?

  • Are you afraid of untimely death?
  • Are you afraid you may never get married?
  • Are you afraid you may never have children?
  • Are you afraid of losing something precious?
  • Are you afraid disaster will strike?

Whatever your fears may be, you must understand that fear is not of God. Everyone at one time or the other had some fears but you can always burst that monster called fear.

Just Do It

  • Examine what you believe. Whether you are walking by faith or living in fear, they are both a function of what you believe. They are both a function of who or what you have chosen to listen to. Are you choosing to listen to what God says about you or what the devil says about you? Saul had a choice to make – to believe God or his fears. Whatever you believe that does not line up with the Word of God is an error.
  • Launch a faith assault against fear. Faith is a product of believing the Word of God. It is refusing to let your senses, facts and experiences determine how you deal with the issues that confront you daily. Who said you will die prematurely? Who said you will not prosper? I am 100% sure that God is not the one that said it and if it is not God, it is the devil, and it is a lie. Confront that situation with the Word of God and watch fear take a flight.


  1. Spirit of the Living God, loose me from the bondage and captivity of fear, in the Name of JESUS.
  2. Whatever fear has robbed me of in the past (breakthrough, blessing, honour, etc.), I decree a total restoration, in the Name of JESUS.
