A spirit of fear leads to a spirit of death, like the young man in this testimony. A young man became very ill and was in a lot of pain. It was soon discovered that he had a cancerous tumor on his pancreas. He shared with me what happened to him when the doctors came into his hospital room to give him the bad report. He said that as he heard the death report, he could not speak. It was as if he had swallowed poison. What did he really swallow? He swallowed fear–more precisely a spirit of fear. He accepted this death report and a spirit of death entered into his spirit and immediately began to meditate and speak about death–his death.
It took others to speak words of hope and healing into his life in order for his faith to be encouraged to the point that he accepted the words of faith and started to speak them for himself. And once he started to speak faith-filled words of healing, health, and life, his miracle manifested and the cancerous tumor disappeared, and it never came back.
It is of extreme importance that we protect ourselves from the spirit of death and refuse to accept its venomous poison–the spirit of fear.
Isaiah 41:10 (AMP) encourages us with these words: “‘Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].”
Four Scriptural Measures to Overcome Fear
1. Set your thoughts on godly matters, instead of earthly ones. Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, by the will of God writes to us in Colossians 3:2, instructing us to “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.” Refuse to dwell on the negative reports and force your mind and emotions to focus on the promises of God. It may seem like false faith in the beginning, but you have to take this first initial step to transform fear into faith.
2. Give your worries to God. Peter, another apostle of Jesus Christ, in First Peter 5:7 encourages us with these words, “Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” Ponder upon God’s Word that He truly does love and care for you. And that He will faithfully see you through the situation.
3. Pray in tongues and encourage yourself. Again, the apostle Paul teaches us in First Corinthians 14:4 (NIV): “Anyone who speaks in a tongue edifies themselves…” When fear tries to overwhelm you, start to pray in tongues. Encourage yourself throughout the day and night by praying in your heavenly language–it works.
4. Choose to think upon the positive promises of God. Paul, also referred to as a bond-servant of Jesus Christ, writes to us in Philippians 4:8 (NIV): “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.“ Choose what you think. If it doesn’t align itself to the message of this verse, toss it out of your mind.
