Spiritual lessons for Christians


We as human beings are constantly attacked by the spirit of fear; either through the powers of darkness which is the spirit world or of the human spirit, which is the world we experience daily. It’s the will of God that we overcome those types of fears. Through His Spirit He empowers us to control those fears and even overcome them. It’s not God’s will that His children live in bondage. The mind can enhance or destroy the life of a Christian. We must bring these thoughts of fear under the control of the Holy Ghost. The only fear that a Christian should experience on a daily bases is a continual fear of God not in being afraid, but in the sense of continual reverence towards His presence in a Christian life.

Let’s relate to some scripture for spiritual support from the Word of God.

Romans 8:14-16 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. New King James Version (NKJV)

Follow the leadership of God’s Spirit. You are in the family of God - reject those fears that are negative and have no place in your life!

1 John 4:17-19 (The Consummation of Love) Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us. New King James Version (NKJV)

There is no fear in love, think about this statement, say it over and over again in your mind to allow the Word to heal your thoughts and your feelings.

Fear involves torment, think about this statement, it’s not meant for God’s children to live in torment. Perfect love casts out fear, the question here is what is perfect love? The only One possible of sharing perfect love is the Lord and He will cast out all unhealthy fears, because the fear of God is a healthy fear, surrounded by respect of His presence.

Let’s now through the Word of God verify the importance of fear towards God!

Read these Scripture that follow:
Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Proverbs 10:27 The fear of the Lord prolongs days, But the years of the wicked will be shortened.

Proverbs 14:26 In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, And His children will have a place of refuge.

Proverbs 14:27 The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, To turn one away from the snares of death.

Proverbs 15:33 The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom, And before honor is humility.

Proverbs 19:23 The fear of the Lord leads to life, And he who has it will abide in satisfaction; He will not be visited with evil.

Psalm 19:8-10 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. lg
