Hi, I welcome you to another episode with THE LIVING BREAD (TLB).

Everyone on the earth has the inner hunger for great accomplishment; to do great things, no one in this practical world, earnestly, if I am to say; no one loves failure.

Most people are rather afraid to fail and this fear is what has kept them from becoming the person God has purposed them to be.

Fear of the unknown, fear of uncertainty, all manners of fear, and to you, that is why you are afraid to try, that is the reason you are afraid to take a risk.

 A friend of mine said to me some years back, that, “Risk makes Rich”,  this implies that, if you must be rich then be set to take the required risk.

 So, it is very risky not to take risks. You are afraid to do the needful because you fear failing, success, wealth, marriage, and investment all have their risk factor.

 Your fear of failure is stronger than your Faith in success. manipulation.

Now, I want to let know this one very vital thing, and that is; Fear is a Robber! And it plans to rob you of your place in destiny and also steal your godly heritage.

 Fear is the enemy’s device, the antic of the devil to ridicule you. The ‘fear’ I am talking about here is not the fear of man or what harm humans are capable of causing you.

 They could be a chunk of it, but that’s not the fear I speak of in this context. This fear is an unseen force in your within, it is a spiritual force, it is called the spirit of fear, it is the devil's device that has kept a lot of people back from fulfilling God’s preordained plan for them.

 It has deprived many even Christians of pursuing the great visions and dreams they have, our scripture “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of sound mind” The spirit of fear is the Satans strategy to kill your dream, to stop it from ever happening. John 10:10a says, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy….”. 

You can see, that the purpose of fear is either to steal, kill or destroy the pre-ordained plan of God in your life, it is the devil’s tactic. 

But the good news is; that God has also made a way for you to overcome this enemy’s operations, against the force of fear, because you can’t fight the devil as a mere mortal, you can’t battle a spirit as a flesh and blood, 1Cor.10:3 says, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of stronghold;)”.

  We overcome every satanic strategy even the spirit of fear by God’s domineering approach, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” 1John5:4,

God has designed strategies in your journey of faith to enable you effortlessly overcome the evil works of the enemy, he did not leave you alone. 

Consequently, you are going to be observing these God’s approaches or strategies to conquering fear in your life

Let us see them

1.           1. The Spirit Of Love

The spirit of love is fundamental in the life of every believer. The scripture is about the love of God, which is manifest in the Son (Jesus Christ).

 Jesus’s drive and zeal for the kingdom are to see people saved, to do good, and to encourage the weak, which are the labor of love. 

His love for their salvation and redemption was his motivation, as long as he proved his love by his works the father kept ensuring he never fails in his assignment, and God kept giving him victory in every fight, because he was zealous for the house of  God, not for self but for the love of the people.

The foundation of Christendom lies in love; according to the word of God in John 3:16; “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”.

 For the Love of the world God gave His only son; Jesus, who himself is love-embodied, 

When you receive and believe in him the love of the Father dwells within you and makes you an overcomer because you are now begotten of God.

 It means that as a believer you have ceased to be ordinary but an extraordinary personality, you are now born of God; a spirit being, John1:13, “which were born, not of blood, nor the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God”. 

Also, 1Cor 2:9, “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him”.

Those that love God, simply are the ones who have accepted his son as their lord and savior.

 Eyes can’t see, ears can’t hear, the mere mind can’t phantom what the Almighty has purposed to do unto them that have received the son.

 Make loving God and his children your life, and you wouldn’t need to fear any man, “He that spared not his own son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” all things are yours in Christ, no matter the height of terror, you overcome all things in him. 

"And all things work together to them that loves God".

2.    2. The Spirit of Power

When we talk about power here, we aren’t talking about the power of human hands, of course, no mortal man has the power to defeat the dedevil’s devices. 

By strength no, man can overcome the believer’s greatest enemy; Satan! Our weapons are not carnal but mighty in God.

Power is the very energy of the life of God, it is an extraordinary power of God in the life of a believer, Acts. 1:8 says, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea,  and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” 

The Holy Spirit of God is the one that endues the believer with power, and what is the power meant for? “and ye shall be witnesses unto me” 

One way you witness is by overcoming the controlling powers in the world and boldly declaring and taking authority of your place in life. 

Through faith in God, you exercise power by the ministry of the Holy Spirit, the Bible has this to say, “And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs followings” Mark 16:20.

 This is proof of the witness, the manifestation of the word is evidence of the power of God in the midst of his children.

 The power of God is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the presence of the power of God, and you know that light has absolute power over darkness, you can’t have light in you and still fear darkness, fear is from the pit of hell, the kingdom of darkness.

The power of God which is the Holy Spirit is of the Kingdom of light. You can’t have the Holy Spirit and have fear. Fear is contrary to faith, light and darkness can’t dwell alongside.

The kingdom of God is not in words only but power (see 1Cor.4:20), you need the word and the power that backs the word to overcome the spirit that is in the world, 

Whether principalities and powers or rulers of darkness and the spiritual wickedness in high places, they all bend to the power of God. 

Fear is Fake Evidence Appearing Real, fear is a thief, fear is to fight your faith, to annul your confidence in God. The Holy Ghost infuses the strength of God in you and gives you boldness to withstand all orchestration of hell against you and your divine heritage.

3.    3. Spirit of Sound Mind

The Bible in 2 Peter1:3 says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertains unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” 

The above scripture is so specific, it states that God has given us all things that are in this world by his divine power, that is through the power of God that works in the son.

But there is a prerequisite to accessing these provisions of God, which is “Knowledge of him”. 

The knowledge of Him that has called us unto glory simply means knowledge of the truth or the word. John 8:32 says, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” 

Also, scriptures in Daniel 11:32 confirms this, “And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploit”.

Many people in the body of Christ, those that are called believers, I mean good numbers of them don’t have good knowledge of the word.

What you know plays a major role in determining what you think, and what you think about becomes your word and action, you can’t have knowledge until you have learned to acquire it.

 A lot of things you fear do not truly exist or are simply imaginary, you can’t know who you are from God’s word and still believe who you are not from the enemy. Who's report are you holding unto?

 The spirit of fear says what is not God's will to you, but the scripture tells you who you really are, the Bible says, ”how forcible are right words” Job 6:25. 

Isaiah 34:16 says too, “Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his Spirit it hath gathered them”.

You have been admonished to read and seek out of the book,  the book contains the plans, purpose, and will of God concerning you.

Until you know His will, you will only speak your mind, that is you will always assume, recall that; God’s thought is not your thoughts.

 God’s thoughts are in His word, Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not evil, to give you an expected end” 

His thoughts are not evil, fear is evil, it's of the devil, God’s will is good, to give you peace, whatever constitutes fear is not of God if you do not know the mind of God you may think certain things that happened in your life is of God.

Faith comes by hearing the word of God, when faith is absent fear will be present, when the knowledge to build is absent, the word to induce fear will be present.

Life does not allow a vacuum, and the devil is an opportunist, he roams about the world looking for a vacuum to occupy, the Bible says, “study to show thyself approved” you must feed yourself with divine wisdom in order to overcome the manipulation of the enemy.

Life is a battlefield, and the word of God is the sword of the Spirit. knowledge, they say is powerful, and the application of knowledge makes you super powerful.

“Everything you have ever wanted is on the other side of fear”


I need you to go through today’s teaching over and over again, and understand that fear is the devil’s strategy, to fight your faith in God, so you should up your faith, by knowing more of his word concerning you and your divine destiny.
