|Spiritual lessons for Christians 2
OUR FIRST ENEMY OF THE
SOUL (MIND) IS FEAR!
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

we are children of God. New King James Version (NKJV)

God - reject those fears that are negative and have no place in your
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
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
