The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. (Psalm 118:6-8)
The Lord is on your side! What a powerful revelation! Understanding this, we can face any challenge or opposition without fear. We can confidently declare, "I will not be afraid.”
When we fully grasp the reality that God is on our side, a shift happens in our expectation. We understand we are not alone in our battles. God gave us a Word; He gave us prayer partners and brothers and sisters. He gave us pastors and teachers and evangelists and prophets, but most importantly, He gave us the authority of Jesus!
Having that revelation means we can boldly declare that we are overcomers, no matter what is trying to come against us.
It's essential to recognize that our trust should always be in the Lord and not on perfect circumstances or other human beings. God is faithful, unchanging, and all-powerful and He alone is our source of strength.
Greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world. We are not destined for defeat but rather our destiny is for victory. No matter what the enemy may bring against us, we can remain confident that God’s plan for our lives is always good.
When fear or anxiety shows up in your life, intentionally shift your focus to God's faithfulness. Thank Him for what He has done and expect what He is going to do. Replace fearful thoughts with thanks and repeat Scripture verses that remind you of His unfailing love and protection.
