Fear has many faces, and it has been a part of my life since I was young.

As a young adult, fear would appear in my life as people pleasing.  I was fearful of what you might think or say about me.  I was afraid you wouldn’t like me, or that I say the wrong thing.

Everything I did, said, or thought always had some element of the voice of fear speaking behind it…. “You can’t say that, what if your wrong?  What if they disagree?” What if…  what if.. what if !!! Ugh, trust me that is no way to live.

Romans 8:14-16

14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.

When the Song No Longer Slaves by Jonathon David and Melissa Helser was released, I had it on repeat for days.  I wrote a blog post about it here: No Longer Slaves   … Which lead into a 2 part Series on Becoming Sons & Daughters. (Click on the Pictures Below to visit those posts).

I felt led to again talk about “Fear” and decided it’s time we kick it to the curb.  It seems everywhere I turn these days, everyone is using the word, or words that are associated with fear.  Just fill in the blanks to these sentences:

  • I am fearful of what will happen if _________ becomes president.
  • I am anxious about ________.
  • I am worried about _________.
  • I am fearful for our country.
  • I am fearful of _________.

Here’s the thing, the enemy deals in fear.  He wants us to have fearful, worried, or anxious thoughts, because when we do, then we aren’t exercising our faith, trusting God, or having His peace evident in our life.  When we allow fear to creep into our thoughts, our vocabulary, our daily life, then the enemy has an access point where he can torment and distract us from walking in our destiny as God’s children.

Fear is from the enemy, it’s his currency.  Faith is from God.  Faith is the currency of Heaven.

Which do you want to be operating in?

“No Longer Slaves”

You unravel me with a melody
You surround me with a song
Of deliverance from my enemies
‘Til all my fears are gone[2x]
I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of GodFrom my mother’s womb
You have chosen me
Love has called my name
I’ve been born again
Into your family
Your blood flows through my veins[4x]
I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God

I am surrounded
By the arms of the father
I am surrounded
By songs of deliverance

We’ve been liberated
From our bondage
We’re the sons and the daughters
Let us sing our freedom

You split the sea
So I could walk right through it
My fears were drowned in perfect love
You rescued me
And I could stand and sing
I am a child of God…

You split the sea
So I could walk right through it

Yes, I am
I am a child of God

Yes, I am
I am a child of God
Full of faith

I’m no longer a slave to fear
I am a child of God
